Sorry you misunderstood. I was not arguing for a "benevelent
dictator" but rather while we are arguing the if's, they are making plans to KILL. I for one do not worry about the "mythical someone" listening in on my conversations because I
don't think they would find them interesting nor would they gain any knowledge about terror. You seem to be more worried about the "rights" of a murderer than protecting my children.

Actually, I'm not particularly concerned with the rights of a murderer...what I'm concerned about are the rights of you and me.

Give the government power to do something, and without fail the power will be misused, and the people abused. This is as certain as the sunrise.

It used to be that promoting small government was a core tenet of conservatism. Do we no longer even pay lip service to the idea?
