"Well, I'll tell you something, if a nuclear weapon goes off in Washington, D.C., or New York or Los Angeles, it'll burn the Constitution as it does. So I'm very happy we have a president that's going to wiretap people's communication with people overseas to make sure that they're not plotting to blow up one of our cities." --U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R CA)So the president is breaking the law and conducting systematic wire tapping of American citizens in order to save the Constitution that he will, regretfully, be forced to burn if we are attacked again. I imagine Dick Cheney's torture rooms and gulags serve much the same purpose.
As Kennedy once said, "Let every nation know that we will sacrifice any freedom, allow any tyranny, cheer on any atrocity in our relentless pursuit of absolute freedom of action for the commander in chief." Pull out another fingernail for liberty--please.
