Re: The Balance Between National Security and Privacy?

[ snip ]

*Stop* *right* *there*.

The very way the question was phrased is misleading, as it sets up a yes/no, black/white dichotomy between "National security" versus "privacy".

Of _course_ people are going to think highly o national security.

But ... there ain't _nothing_ in the original claims that shows any validity to the arguments that stomping on privacy rights, oh, and violating the laws left and right (allegedly, to be sure, but it certainly looks like it) and shredding the US Constitution (same disclaimer) has anything whatsoever with making us safer.

My third grade civics teachers would be embarrassed for anyone putting together a survey like this, and would cry over the lost minds of people using arguments in this manner.
