"It's been ten years since 9/11. Washington has started three wars. Massively increased spending. Created big new bureaucracies. And stolen away many of our liberties. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11 Americans were willing to trade freedom for presumed security, even though most of the powers claimed by the government either did little to protect people or could have been enacted with legal safeguards. Now, it seems, Americans are thinking more about liberty." (09/03/11)
