The attack on Boston yesterday should serve notice to those that are more than willing to give up some of their freedoms for a little bit of temporary security. See the government is not capable of providing protection, safety, and security all of the time. The scene in Boston was horrific and the attackers need to be brought to justice. The problem is protecting our streets from the terrorists should have been a priority, yet the only priority of this government is to protect the liberal interest groups.
See for the past few months our government both State and Federal has been focused on taking away our rights as citizens to protect our selves. Our government has been busy chastising Americans into giving up our freedoms in the name of security all the while someone or some group was planning on attacking asporting event. The left is all about individual freedom when it comes to a right or freedom they agree with but are more than willing to give up other peoples right and freedoms if they disagree. So where is the safety and security our government has promised? Please liberals tell me again why I have to give of my right to self protection when the govenrment is obviously incapable of protecting us.
I am not blaming the govenrment for the failure to protect the Boston Marathon. In all likelihood there was no way to provide 100% security, However, I do blame the government for attempting to take away my constitutional rights to provide my own security when the government can not provide me with security. Our streets are dangerous and taking away guns just because liberals fear them is not going to change that. In the case of terrorism, this administration will insist on punishing a few individuals rather than whole, but when it comes to American rights this administration punishes the citizenry as a whole rahter than the individual culprits. This adminstration says leave the protection of the citizenry to the police yet look at Boston yesterday and ask yourself, Do you feel safe and secure with government alone protecting us? If a terrorist (domestic or international) is capable of building bombs in the apartment next door and planting them at a major sporting event, do you really believe you are safe and secure? Do you really believe taking away my rights is going to make you safer?
Let there be no doubt that we are under attack because we are a free nation. There are rogue states that understand terrorist attacks will bring about calls for less freedom for the sake of security, that is why terrorists strike. The best advice is to carry on with our day to day business and punish those that would attempt to hurt our way of life. Don't give in to terrorism, yet we are still thinking we should give up even more individual freedom for the sake of security. Again the left has it exactly backwards. The events of yesterday should strengthen our resolve to be free, yet I have no doubt there will be talk of again reducing our own rights to freedom in the aftermath of yesterday.
