Comment: Focus on Civil Liberties

(See in situ)

Focus on Civil Liberties

Focus on Civil Liberties first.

Focus on the Patriot Act.
Focus on NDAA.
Focus on the fact that Obama signed into law a bill that makes it illegal to protest on government grounds.

THAT one's a mind-blower: The first African-American president signed into law a bill that would have made Martin Luther King Jr.'s Million-Man March a federal offense.

Liberals and conservatives can debate economic policy, that's fine. But civil liberties should be untouchable, period.
