What do you think ATS? Would you be willing to give up more civil liberties to fight terrorism?
The problem for me is I really don't know what that means. What am I giving up? Can cops beat me into a coma for dropping a butt on the sidewalk? Can
the marines invade a city and go house to house looking for (what?) someone in possession of Islamic texts?
Also, I fear the government's idea of fighting terrorism would be different from mine. What good is rounding up terrorists if the religion is allowed
to stay in my country and spawn more terrorists? All we have to do is look at the Tsarnaev brothers to know that new terrorists are born every 20
years or so.
But, I don't want a Muslim slaughter. I just want them put on a boat and sent to where it's okay to kill each other in the name of allah. Meaning,
what good will it do to pick off the scabs, but leave the disease here to fester again and again?
I don't see a final solution in any of this, so no, I wouldn't give up my civil liberties.
