Bloomberg Says Interpretation of Constitution Will
This stuff has got to stop.“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”
In 2001 we got stuck with the Patriot Act and DHS which expanded government and set a precedent for allowing that government to intrude on basic rights. Subsequent events have created even more "necessary" intrusions on basic privacy and liberties. We have to ask ourselves...."When will it stop?"
What level of liberties are we willing to forsake in exchange for "safety" which will never be achieved 100%? At some point it seems that we may as well allow the terrorists to take over because we would be equally oppressed under their governance than we will under our own government. That's totally unacceptable.
