technology killed freedom a long time ago. How about the gov't stops spending money violating rights and focuses on fixing their f-ups.

My pleasure.

Americans need to pick up The Constitution once and a while and read it.

Thomas Jefferson lived from 1743 to 1826. It's sort of like saying we should still keep defending ourselves with the musket. Unfortunately we live in the day and age where people for enough money can get access to stuff they should not. Just one more tool for defense against the seriously bad people. People want total freedom and then something like 9/11 (pick the event to your liking) happens and then they cry that enough was not done to stop it. How exactly to you find the bad people if you don't go looking? It's not like they have a sign tattooed to their forehead.

Oh, by the way, I have read the constitution, thank you very much/

I never wanted to live in another country until recently. The problem is, "Which one?".

It's too bad- two of my ancestors came here from England in 1654.
