More clarity from Larken Rose: do people ACCUSED of being terrorists, or "enemy combatants," or whatever, deserve to be treated as innocent until proven guilty? Put the shoe on the other foot. If Chinese troops came over here, and did random searches of homes without warrants or probable cause, and arrested hundreds of people based on nothing more than guesses or suspicions, would you think it was okay? In other words, do you ACTUALLY believe in freedom, or do you just believe that YOU should be free?
When politicians whine that they need more power, you would do well to assume that they want to use that power against YOU, or at least that the power WILL be used against you at some time in the future.
