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?

It use to be fiscally responsible also. I don't feel like I have given any thing up to let government listen to terrorist.
People try to expand the argument into they are listening to them when they are not.
