“1) Where in the Constitution does it state that this nation cannot defend itself?”
A non-sequitur...and perhaps I should have said it is the f——d Constitution. The death those who fought for it was not in vain because it preserved freedom for a time. But that time of freedom has sadly passed.
“2) Please be specific on how and when and where this is occuring. Give some specific examples.”
You must be willfully blind. Just a sampler:
1) The mining and analysis of phone records of all Americans without a search warrant.
2) Forcing major ISPs and internet media outlets to allow direct access to private data such as emails and search history and then forcing these firms to deny that this has occurred (again, no search warrant)
3) Forcing data security firms such as RSA to create back doors in their supposed encryption systems and then forcing them to deny that they have done so (violation of Fifth Amendment)
4) intercept shipments of Apple products into the US to install espionage tools on them (criminal conversion and violation of Fifth Amendment)
“3) How would YOU carry out national security in a time of world terrorism with weapons of mass destruction?”
Let’s start with:
- Strict immigration policy
- Close monitoring of all persons fitting the terrorist profile, including wiretapping enabled by warrants in a legitimate court. Yes, this does mean “racial profiling”.
- Unabashed acknowledgement that radical Islam is the enemy.
- Ceasing of all “military” operations that involve using US taxpayer funds for building roads and hospitals for the ungrateful lands that we occupy
- Ruthlessness in pursuing the enemies of the American people
- No wars for “democracy” (e.g. US military operations in Libya to support Al Qaeda) or to promote an “Arab Spring”.
In other words, defend the interests of the US and its allies without getting involved in needless conflicts.
“4) Do you believe terrrorists who want to kill us all should be simply allowed to proceed do so? If you do, you seem to lack the most basic of survival traits.”
