  •  "Take away a Right, and 'liberties' don't exist" (0+ / 0-)

    Profound thought.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

    •  See, you're using that definition of "if I'm not (1+ / 0-)

      allowed to do anything I want to, whereever and whenever I feel like, then life is not fair". There's far more substance to this subject than you, seemingly, have ever been introduced to.

      There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

      •  Not at all. (0+ / 0-)

        I am simply repeating the nonsense you stated.

        You want to take liberties away from innocent Americans.
        Your wants aren't relevant when it come to their rights.

        Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

          "rights".

          I hope you finally grow up to the point of not being so simplistic.

          •  Then it is a good thing that both are written down (0+ / 0-)

            "Liberty--n. pl. lib·er·ties
            1. a. The condition of being free from restriction or control.
                b. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing.
            2. Freedom from unjust or undue governmental control.
            3. A right or immunity to engage in certain actions without control or interference: the liberties protected by the Bill of Rights."

            Rights are even simpler.
            They even made a convenient list of a few of them.

            Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

    •  Hey, I just remembered a place where you can start (1+ / 0-)

      your education. Look up the legal concept of "Least Restrictive Alternative". Obviously that would only be a begining.

      There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.
