Terrorist "watch lists" and YOUR Rights

http://www.macombdaily.com/stories/0...20col001.shtml

So the government puts you on a list with no due process and they are supposed to take away your rights?

Boy, the author of that article sure has an axe to grind eh? The 2nd ammendment guarantee's the rest and an armed society is a polite society. I am no longer a fan of the NRA (or member) because it became clear that it was more about the NRA than my rights.

Are you surprised by the lack of due process?

That article has such a severe bias that it doesn't seem likely to persuade anyone. It's more of an exercise in fallacy spotting and will probably repel many readers with its bitter tone. I'm sure the author enjoyed writing it though.

I think the Patriot Act, Terror Watch List, and such programs to "keep us safe" are extremely dangerous to our liberties and rights.

I agree!!!!
I don't even know why we have a Patriot Act, it does nothing but takes power and rights away from us citizens. Must be another tool by "The Man" to keep us down.

Good lord, what a bunch of tripe. Maybe this guy should move to Canada, England, or someplace where there are no nuts.

You guys should be more concerned about a goverment institution that has far more power than Home Security and the Patriot Act.

It's called the IRS . They've been puttin' it to us in real life.

It's not exactly what the American Patriots had in mind, is it?

I'm always suspicious of any cause given a self-promotional title that doesn't actually describe it, but rather asserts and treats as granted its virtue and worthiness, such as "Operation Just Cause", "Pro Life", and "Affirmative Action". "Patriot Act" is another good example, and I'm sure there are many others.

(Internal Revenue "Service"? Hmm...)
