Your freedom

In Germany they first came for the Communists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me -- and by that time no one was left to speak up. -- Pastor Martin Niemoller

Think about that....
... when they detain "suspected terrorists" via mititary tribunal.
... when they want to tap into your private life via "The Patriot Act."
... when they want to scan your personal computers for "illegal stuff."
... every time the violate the Constitution
