Those who should protect our freedom are taking our freedom.
We are certainly not more secure from those who govern us, since they are able to lock us up, incommunicado and without telling anyone they have us; this would be without benefit of attorney, or even without your family knowing where you are. All for merely being accused of being engaged with terrorists in some obscure way. Hey, want to get rid of someone for awhile? Turn them in to the FBI for being terrorists. They'll lock you up first, check the facts later, when they get around to it, some year.
