It is now official. A majority of Americans are willing to give up liberty in order to be safer from terrorism. A stunning new McClatchy-Ipsos poll has found that 51 percent of Americans agree with this statement: "it is necessary to give up some civil liberties in order to make the country safe from terrorism."
Only 36 percent of those polled agreed with this statement: "some of the government's proposals will go too far in restricting the public's civil liberties." (Yet where is the outcry to close our borders?)
So are Americans really this stupid?
Have they really been brainwashed into willingly giving up their essential liberties just so they can feel a little safer?
