It doesn't matter when or if it ends. People will put up with quite a bit for a false sense of security. How many times have you heard of businesses paying criminals "Protection Money" not to rob them? Just that example is in dozens of movies because it has happened, probably still does in places.
When does the War on terror (or the struggle against extremism for that matter) end?

The way my history teacher explained it, the system is set up in such a way that even if most people voted libertarian it wont happen. it's set up so only a democrat or republican can win, i dont know if this is true but it doesnt surprise me all that much.

Then, when as Bush says 'the job is done', you'll be able to go down to the local Police station and exchange your biometric chip and database records for your liberties and freedom again.
They can't set a date for the exchange but they promise when the 'job is done' and the Freedoms they take are no longer threatened by Terror, you'll defenitly get them back soon after.
