Not trying to fight Old Corps fight here but again I ask what that response had to do with this statement?
This last POS Executive Order gives him the ability to turn any American into an "uncompensated" worker in "peacetime or in war," and "in an
emergency or non-emergency" - so, basically, anyone can be turned into a slave at any time.
I understand who Timothy is and what he did, how are you relating him to this statement? I am starting to get dizzy here so help me out. Is there a
connection I am not seeing?
Just as a known example of a home grown terrorist. That could possible have been stopped if "terrorist chatter" revealed him and his intent. But
without the ability to hold him without charges - - he is still free to continue with his plan.
I am well aware of the "slippery slope" - - in regards to individual rights. I am certainly not ignorant to that.
Yes - - I am agreeing and trusting the government to detain a citizen without charges. I am well aware of that.
Logic dictates to me the necessity in facing the increase in home grown terrorists.
Could it be abused? Yes. I am choosing logic over emotion and possible abuse by the government.
Terrorist: I also understand "One man's terrorist - is another man's Hero".
