NEW YORK - Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg cautioned that people concerned about losing freedoms in favor of tracking and prosecuting terrorists need to speak out, as reported by AP writer Gina Holland. This spring, the U.S. Supreme Court is going to be taking several cases related to terrorism, including challenges to the government's detention of suspects.
 
News.Yahoo.com "On important issues, like the balance between liberty and security, if the public doesn't care, then the security side is going to overweigh the other," she said. And here we have the one thing that has done more to erode freedom and liberty throughout history, apathy. How many times do we need history to teach us the lessons of an apathetic populace more content to plod along with their daily chores, than to pay attention to the larger picture in which we are found? At a time when the United States is divided into an intense bipolar and passionate hate between liberal and conservative, those who normally pay attention to these subjects are suddenly finding themselves so preoccupied with petty squabbles of political positioning, that we may one day wake up shocked at what we have created.

And Canadian...


But if you look more closely we don't have the document that frames the constitution.. Canada only had a bill of rights written in 1987!! But we also have the notwithstanding clause that can change our liberties into no liberties when they see fit. Which is more horse #.

American's will hang on to it till the last breath, because they know that document is supposed to protect them from tyranny within the government...And once those amendments get stripped away slowly and slyly, thats when there's a problem.


Since i'm in the states, I will have no problem fighting even though it's not my home country, I love it just the same as my own... Hopefully we can smell the bull # and do something about it.

just the fact that they had enough balls to name it that speaks volumes. but SpittinCobra is right, theres nothing we can do now but watch it go down and prepare for the worst. i try to talk to people in my everyday life about things like the patriot act and loss of freedom and civil rights and they look at me with that funny look, like 'yea, ok buddy'.

This may be posted in the wrong place but it does have to do with our Civil Liberties being violated, etc.

The only news I watch on TV is C-Span because it's the ONLY televised source that appears trustworthy. I watched the "David Kay hearings" regarding the WMD- or lack there of and in watching, I couldn't help but think we are already slaves of the NWO. There's not going to be a revolution because the bad guys are already in control of the media. And the media is the strong arm of freedom.

I am hard of hearing, have been all my life and I can read lips pretty good. Did anyone notice at the closing of the hearings, as Warner and one of the Senators stood (I believe the senator from Michigan), the senator from Michigan told Warner "We have a problem with this guy" I couldn't read his lips any more because someone stood in front of the camera. Are there any up dates on David Kay, because I believe he is someone who understands that our freedoms are evaporating.

Again, I am so grateful to have found this site. I love it here!

Does it really matter if people vote, the people of power can take the election again.
