Poll: Civil liberties vs. security

According to a new Rasmussen poll, "59 percent of Americans say the legal system is tilted too far in favor of individual liberties at the expense of national security or is well balanced between the two."

The same poll also noted that 50% of those asked said the president did not break any laws in authorizing the NSA to intercept phone calls. 33% said Bush did indeed break the law.

The answer to the poll question is driven by the responsdent's political leaning (and that's too bad). Cause there have been no attacks since 911 and that is what should count.

I am more outraged at cameras on traffic lights and everywhere else (esp. England). It's getting harder and harder to make a dishonest living.

Yep, I'm more worried about the possibility that the guvmint will track me by my EZ Pass, despite promises to the contrary, and figure out that I'm doing 70 on the interstate.
