I'm *saying* that through two world wars, against far more lethal and numerous
and well-armed enemies than what we have right now in a few thousand hobbled
members of Al Quaeda and an almost entirely disarmed and impotent Iraq (as
testified by the ongoing war), we managed to serve the interests of liberty
without erasing the reality of liberty here at home. We did it without
shredding the constitution.
THAT'S my point. Get it now?
