Disturbing Facebook debate about rights
I've had an on going debate on my Facebook for three days after I posted a letter that I wrote to my senators concerning the TSA and their violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution with the illegal searches. The last two people I thought who would disagree with me said that they are fine with the searches and are willing to give up some of their rights for safety. One even said he didnít have a problem with the invasive searches on his kids or wife. Sadly, he is an active duty Marine- this is one reason Iím so surprised about his reaction.
Iím still upset about it and thought about it all day at work. The quotes from Franklin didnít phases him and he passed it off as different times. I stated how they were going through much more difficulties during the formation of the America than we are now.
This is my first encounter with someone who is willing to give up his or her rights for perceived security.
Has anyone else experienced this? I hope not and I hope itís just an anomaly.
