Leno of Liberty

From yesterday's Email Update from the Future of Freedom Foundation:

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

President Bush signed a bill giving phone companies immunity for letting the government spy on its customers without a warrant. Isn't that unbelievable? President Bush said 9/11 changed everything. And you know, he's right, because violating the Constitution and breaking the law used to mean jail time. Apparently no more.

I paraphrase - Those that give up liberty for safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Ben Franklin. Judging from the polls where a slight majority of Americans support an intrusive governement, we seem to no longer be "home of the brave". One must wonder what freedoms will be trampled if/when another terrorist attack happens.
