For those who are wondering,

the reason I made this poll is I can't believe what some people are saying, as if it's ok to sue someone for being mean.

My grandparents came here to escape Facism in Italy. Many others I know came here to escape Communism in China. I think people in America have gotten soft, we've forgotten how evil tyrants can be. One by one we're trading our freedoms away "sure I don't mind if my privacy is invaded a little, as long as it means I'm safer from crime". How much freedom are you willing to trade away, and will you even notice it if it's all in little chunks?

There's a reason the Founding Fathers restricted the government so much, because they know no government can controll itself, not even ours. This is not because "G"overnment is bad, but because we cannot resist trying to do the "right" thing for others. The thing is, too often the "right" thing turns out to be wrong. But once you've started down that path, it's almost impossible to turn back.
