Moe, please take a look at Jamac's post above.
It is literally tens of thousands of times more likely that you would be the victim of a robbery/murder than a terrorist attack.
Given that you live in "times like that", consistency would oblige you to support much more severe reductions in civl liberties, in order to combat this much larger threat to your well being.
Warrantless searches, random round-ups of the demographically suspect, giving the cops the absolute right to snatch you up or bust down your door or go through your mail-- all of those "tools" would undoubtedly decrease crime and make you safer.
So if "protecting our lives" means "doing whatever is necessary", then why have a bill of rights?
I'm saying that you want to use the Bill of Rights to wipe your ass. I'm saying that your ignorance and fear make you unfit to call yourself an American, or a conservative, or a patriot.
I'm saying you're shitting on the sacrifice of those vast legions of the dead who gave their lives to truly defend "freedom", even as you claim to champion their cause.
Absolutely disgusting. Get out of my country.
