relinquishing essential liberties
"You may think I've gone over the edge with this next statement ... Americans must give up some civil liberties in order to catch those who would kill us and then we get our civil liberties back."
-- Michael Savage (The Savage Nation 2002)

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
--Benjamin Franklin, 1759

1. Well Savage Weiner has...
... already proven that he's not a master of philosophical thought, so it's safe to say he's no Constitutional scholar, either. Waiting for this government to decide when "we get our civil liberties back" is a prescription for disaster.
