87. Do I have children -- honey, I have grandchildren. Your arguments are circular and panicked...

If we threw out the US Constitution and Bill of Rights every time we were in danger, America as a democratic republic would have long ago ceased to be.

This country has made many, many mistakes along the way that stain and shame us (and that in the end we try to rectify), but so far we have not made the one mistake from which we will not be able to recover: actually having the military overthrow our government.

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." Benjamin Franklin.

George W. Bush and his cabal panicked (that word again) the country into accepting the USA PATRIOT ACT and Homeland Security and all the rest of it. Trump could complete the job. How about if we just say No.
