clipped from: www.informationclearinghouse.info The Stupidest People On EarthBy Angie RiedelIt looks increasingly hypocritical when the government insists that it must break the law in order to save us. It's become the government's mantra that it cannot protect us unless it breaks the law at will, without oversight, and without our knowledge or consent. It's been openly stated that unless our basic rights are fully yielded to the government, further terrorist attacks will come, and because of our failure to yield what literally defines us, those attacks will be our own fault.Several of the amendments to the constitution, our basic inalienable rights, have been thoroughly and systematically undermined due to government urging and incessant claims that they need our rights in order to do their jobs.It's time to ask for clarification of the term 'national security'. Exactly what do they mean when they say those words? Because we as a nation have never felt less secure, in fact we have never been less secure than we are right now.
