About 2800 people died on 9/11. At least 10 times that amount or more die in traffic accidents every year. Yes, the first is murder and the second is accidental. But death is death no matter how it happens. Everyone will die someday. Some will die today.
Must we give up our precious freedoms for the whole nation because some people might die by terrorism? Everyone dies, whether by car wreck or terrorist bomb. But does everyone live, in the sense of having freedom to live, when their rights are stripped away?
Let the government do everything it can to prevent terrorism at home and abroad. But let it also stop short of curtailing the Bill of Rights to do so.
