Question by DeutscheMann7: When did America throw away “Give me liberty, or give me death”?
As a veteran I am disturbed at how many people are saying things like:
“let them tap phones, if you aren’t doing anything wrong what do you have to worry about?”
“I’m healthy who cares if corporations and insurance companies access my medical records?”
“He’s a cop, he can pull you over if he feels like it, just go with the flow and stop questioning it”
“If they want to search my house without a warrant let them, I have nothing to hide”
“they should just take *THEM ALL* and…….” (I think we know from the 1940’s what happens to *them all* when imagination’s run wild)
I don’t know if it is just younger generations, or if I am off track here, but when I ask people about “Give me liberty, or give me death” I am met with “that is outdated nonsense” or “that was before 9/11” Now I am NOT a political person, so I don’t pick sides. The extent of my politics is only respect and admiration of our constitution, it’s amendments, and our bill of rights. But I sense that our country is changing. Both the government becoming more clandestine, and people becoming more accepting that our government is . Anyone else see this too? Or am I just getting more snippy in my old age of mid 30’s? lol
