Feingold vs Patrick Henry

Posted on 12/21/2005 7:16:29 AM PST by hudsonohio

Feingold quoting Patrick Henry has to be the most absurd thing I've heard all week. What Henry said was "Give me Liberty or Give me Death!" What Feingold is saying is " Give me the right to have private converstions with people who want to murder American men, women and children or give me death!"

If he and his dimwit friends keep at this they may get both. Unfortunately they'll drag alot of innocents with them.

This is a delicate matter best decided in the open by representatives of the people.

That should be "The People" (note the caps) referring the The People of the United States, as in citizens, as in citizens who have represenatives in congress. Now pray tell, who are the representatives of Al Quaeda?

That the 4th Amendment refers to the rights of The People of the United States. It does not confer those rights onto terrorists and therefore a reference to the 4th amendment in this situation is null and void.

All the government has to do is label someone a "potential terrorist" and their rights are void? That is the most extended and contorted piece of "logic" I have ever seen. You belong in Soviet Russia.
