Privacy Invasion - Dead or Alive
The whole idea is that by invading every American's privacy, the government can reduce via prevention the death and injury toll that terrorists might inflict upon Americans as they did on 9/11.
Clearly the focus is upon preventing violent crime.
Does anyone think that a victim of criminal homicide, forcible rape, robbery, or aggravated assault, truly cares whether she died by the hands of Muhammad Atta of the Middle East, or at the hands of Harold Sweeney of Boston? Dead is dead, raped, robbed assaulted, it is all the same to them, correct?
Can you even begin to calculate the number of violent crimes we could prevent if the government could listen to every phone or oral conversation every person in America is having, read the mail or email of every person in America, or know there every location at the snap of a finger?
When you consider that in 2004 there were 1,367,009 violent crimes committed in the US, why stop with terrorists, when we could prevent thousands and thousands of violent crimes through the logic of privacy invasion. These criminals terrorize Americans daily.
Invade their privacy, stop crime. It's a no brainer.
The Fourth Amendment had its chance. It was good for a couple of hundred years or so, but given George Bush's inherent executive power during the war against terrorist inflicted violent crime, why stop at preventing the small number of terrorist casualties we imagine, when we can prevent so many violent crimes?
IT'S TIME TO GIVE AMERICANS THE PREVENTATIVE SECURITY FROM VIOLENT CRIMES THEY DESERVE.
INVASION OF AMERICA'S PRIVACY WILL PROTECT US FROM VIOLENT CRIME.
VOTE NO FOR PRIVACY, AND BE SAFE . . .
