Americans Fear Government More Than Terror

How much fear does it take to cause the average guy on the street to fear government more than a terror bomber ripping off legs or worse?

Fox News polled 619 random registered voters the day after the Boston bombing. For the first time since May 2001, a majority said 'NO' when asked, “Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?”  WAPO got the same results

As Ben Franklin aptly noted, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

After a decade of declining freedoms, privacy encroachments and Obama's attacks on the constitution people are beginning to see what Franklin meant.

The poll showed 51% of Democrats would give up their consitutional protections to let Obama do pretty much whatever he wants.  The GOP and Independents say Obama is using terror and social issues to snip their rights..

If you're not sure, just repeat Franklin's sage observation while pondering last weeks gun grab.  The answer always eludes people with the IQ of a lame liberal secular humanist.
