Once again we have the inevitable outcome of those that would disregard the Constitution. No one should be surprised, only more resolute in preventing more power grabs through fear mongering - old tactic folks. Don't be fooled. Big, powerful, unaccountable government is the scariest thing on Earth. History (and present - Egypt) leaves no room for ambiguity here.
"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both." -- Benjamin Franklin
"There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!"
"The world isn't run by weapons anymore, or energy, or money. It's run by little ones and zeroes, little bits of data. It's all just electrons."
