Now that we’ve killed a 54 year old religious fanatic with kidney disease being hidden out by the Pakistani government in a mansion 800 yards from their West Point, can we have our Constitution back? I don’t want to be greedy, maybe we could just get back a few Amendments: 4th (protection from unreasonable search and seizure), 5th (due process), 6th (trial by jury, due process), 8th (cruel and unusual punishment)? Maybe even throw in the 10th (powers reserved to the states and the people.)
You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
“These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of life. With every atrocity, they hope that America grows fearful…” G.W. Bush, Sept 20th, 2001. Each time I make a phone call and know it is likely tapped without a warrant, each time I have my crotch fondled at the airport because I refuse a full body X-ray backscatter image, I am THANKFUL that we have not given in to terrorists or changed our way of life.
