By a 61 to 31 percent margin, the Time/CNN/ORC International poll found, Americans are more concerned that new anti-terrorism policies will excessively restrict civil liberties than that government will fail to enact strong, new anti-terrorism policies. A plurality of people, 49 percent, would not be willing to give up civil liberties if it were necessary to curb terrorism, compared to 40 percent who would.

Glad to see you alive and kicking my friend!
I agree with you 100%
Now I must add, who is allowing this nonsense to happen in our country?
That makes it easier to understand why 40% of the people would be willing to give up some liberties. It's natural to want to protect your family.
The 40% who worry that someone in their family will become a victim of terrorism is up six percentage points from a 2011 CNN poll, conducted on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
