At what point will Americans finally stop losing more liberty and freedom? With each passing year, the iron grip of the government gets even tighter, and each time it does we are told that it is either for "our safety" or for "national security". One can only imagine what is going to happen the next time there is any kind of "terror incident" on an airplane. They are going to point to all those Americans who are complaining about "enhanced pat downs" and TSA groping as the reason why security is not tough enough. So where does all this end? Will we eventually all have to go through a body cavity search just to get on an airplane? Will they start groping us at school, at work and at sporting events? Are we going to have to "lock down" America from coast to coast to ensure that no terrorist ever is able to harm any American? The way that we are going, we soon won't have to worry about "terrorists" taking away our freedoms because they will already be gone. Is any amount of "safety" worth living like this? If America turns into one big prison camp where we are all prodded, poked, groped, watched, tracked and treated like sub-human slaves will it even be worth living in anymore?
