Americans don’t believe in shredding Constitution to fight terror

Defending the civil liberties of suspected terrorists is generally not considered a popular position. And yet, in a bit of a surprise, a new poll released today finds that a plurality worries more about government trampling constitutional rights while battling terrorism than it does about government not doing enough to fight it. From the Post:

Which worries you more: that the government will not go far enough to investigate terrorism because of concerns about constitutional rights, or that it will go too far in compromising constitutional rights in order to investigate terrorism?

Will not go far enough: 41

Will go too far: 48

Interestingly, despite the fact that the push for Tsarnaev to be held as an enemy combatant is coming from GOP officials, Republican respondents to the poll are even more strongly tilted towards worrying about government compromising constitutional rights, by 56-34. Conservatives tilt this way by 46-41. Democrats also agree by 48-43.

On top of this, the poll was taken from April 17-18 — well after the bombings had taken place, on April 15th.

So why do the senators — whose call was echoed by Massachusetts senatorial candidate Gabriel Gomez — persist? Some candidates seem to feel that asserting a manly contempt for defendants’ rights is a winning political stance. But it’s also hard to avoid the impression that McCain, Graham, and some other hawks are rehashing the battles of the Bush era, in search of vindication. During the recent confirmation hearings for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, McCain and Graham seemed most concerned about preventing a one-time Iraq war critic from heading the Pentagon, as if elevating him to the job would discredit a war that both senators vigorously supported.

You, being a brain dead zombie buy into the Democrats politicization of that war (second link - below). It's OK to make an argument we should have never gone, but then you would need to blame Democrats as much as Republicans, which a Jim Jones moron like you wouldn't do!

The AP reports that the men who detonated explosives to kill innocents at the Boston Marathons and later engaged in a shoot-out with police (after shooting an MIT security guard execution-style) didn't have gun permits, according to Massachusetts state police.

But wait a minute. I thought a rigorous system for regulating gun permits was supposed to prevent gun violence (that's what Massachusetts state officials insisted upon passing the nation's toughest gun laws back in 1998).

It's almost as if the Tsarnaev brothers -- terrorists, murderers, carjackers -- had no respect for the (gun) laws . WE HAVE TO MANY GUN LAWS,WHEN YOU SEE OBAMA CRYING ABOUT NEWTOWN AND NOT THE OTHER KIDS THAT HAVE GOT KILLED IN THE USA BY OUT LAWS HE IS CRYING TO TAKE

"Gunwalking", or "letting guns walk", was a tactic of the Arizona Field Office of the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). They ran a series of "gunwalking" sting operations[2][3] between 2006[4] and 2011[2][5] in the Tucson and Phoenix area where the ATF "purposely allowed licensed firearms dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers, hoping to track the guns to Mexican drug cartel leaders."[6] These operations were done under the umbrella of Project Gunrunner, a project intended to stem the flow of firearms into Mexico by interdicting straw purchasers and gun traffickers within the United States.[7]President Obama and Attorney General Holder to severely curtail gun rights in America. This is not to say that the subject isn’t relevant to the overall narrative; in fact, it is very important to consider the evidence Pavlich presents in support of her assertion that,“Under Eric Holder, the ATF was deputized to change the nation’s gun laws by putting in place a shadowy operation designed to prove a falsehood: that weapons sold by U.S. gun shops, especially ‘assault weapons,’ are the cause of Mexico’s drug violence. By creating public outrage, President Obama, Eric Holder, and other administration officials, all with longstanding records of hostility against the Second Amendment, hoped to reinstate the assault weapons ban, which had been one of their early, but failed, political goals”(p. 154). However, while Pavlich demonstrates the existence of these efforts, the overall narrative might have been better served by relegating commentary on them to a chapter or two at the end of the book.

Excellent point. Have you ever seen a program or agenda from Democrats lately that has helped anything?

Democrats have no respect for the Constitution. Connecticut just passed an anti-freedom gun law that does nothing except harass law abiding citizens and does absolutely ZERO to prevent a future act against children at schools.

Your post just pointed out how fake Democrat/Socialist gun laws are.

Democrats are idiots and liberalism is a mental disorder.

Conservatism, I fear (so to speak), can never be cleansed of this need to instill fear. Whether it’s of black people or of street thugs or of immigrants or of terrorists or of jackbooted government agents, it’s how the conservative mind works. I don’t even think it’s always cynical and manipulative; conservatives often do see enemies under every bed. But that doesn’t mean they’re there, and it most definitely doesn’t mean the rest of us ought to make law and policy based on their nightmares.

funny how
libs talk of fear and never mention their own. The fear of personal responsibility,the fear of haveing to provide for themselves,the fear of the rights of others , the fear of consequence,and the fear of standing on their own without a nanny goverment to care for them from cradle to grave. Libs cowar in fear over these things and cry for laws to ensure their iresponsibilty will be protected.

You're an idiot!
We would have lost the Revolutionary War without France coming to our "logistic" and financial aid. We were not held hostage by an evil tyrant who buried thousands in mass graves or tortured anyone even suspected of overthrowing their regime.

Who were we going to send financial aid to in Iraq?

Do you support Obama's "right war" and still being in Afghanistan and now Pakistan?
