is looking to start Internet regulations. It may look like it's not a bad thing at first, but once the government get's their foot into the door there is no stopping them from prying it open. Eventually, we will see regulation of what we can actually access and read online. There could be monthly fees for accessing any number of websites, including any MSM, Facebook and YouTube. Innovation will go out the window, and what is the last free domain on this Earth will no longer exist. Our right for knowledge and to learn is being taken away.
wants to trade more of our liberties for security. Homegrown terrorism is a threat, but even if it's from people like you and me who are protesting against the government. The point of the 2nd Amendment, "the RIght to Bear Arms" is to make sure the government remains the servant of the people and not the other way around. When the government gets out of hand, the people need to have a means of reestablishing freedom.
What really gets me is how terrorism is such a threat to the American people, while at the same time, smoking kills over 440,000 Americans a year (not to mention so may other deaths that could be reduced with government assistance), because of a product that the US gov't hugely profits off of. Do you still think that the government has the people's best interest in mind?
