If they had all the proof in the world that an American was a terrorist, you still wouldn't believe it, you're just beyond hope. It is rare that I agree with what Ms Tapper says but she said something I do agree with. Don't blame Bush nor Obama, put the blame where it belongs, blame it on the terrorist that hide among women and children like the cowards they are.
Actually, you are quite wrong. I think a terrorist like Timothy McVeigh got what he deserved. Thing is, what he deserved was determined by due process of law that is guaranteed to ALL of us by the 5th amendment to the Constitution.
Unlike some here, I find the Constitution to be sacred. All parts of it must be obeyed. If we do not like one part, the founders gave us a way to change it, with the use of amendments. But, otherwise, it is the law of the land and is what protects us from tyranny of dictators and is supposed to keep as much liberty as possible in our own hands.
If you think it is ok to toss aside one right because you agree with it, then how can you get upset if someone else throws away a right you agree with?
How can you be ok with the execution of accused terrorists that are US Citizens yet not be ok with gun control, censorship, etc? If you think the government has the right to murder its citizens, then it most certainly has the right to tax us, tell us what to eat, etc as it sees fit.
One cannot get just a little bit pregnant. Once we accept the theft of one right, we have no reason to complain when the government ceases another right.
We have given trials to the lowest scum of the earth, and they weren't even citizens in some cases.
Being a US Citizen carries some great guarantees, and one of those is being able to tell the government that it cannot kill me or imprison me until it proves I deserve it. What is so bad about the government being forced to prove it as they did with McVeigh?
Throw away the right to a trial by jury, throw away very other right that you THINK you have, because you just rendered the words of the bill of Rights irrelevant. Am I the only one that sees this?
Yes, I hate terrorists. But they are attacking our way of life, and a huge part of that way of life is the wonderful liberties guaranteed to all citizens by our Founding documents.
But keep in mind, get rid of one right, you lose them all. Otherwise you are a hypocrite of the same mold you accuse others. Otherwise those we disagree with can shove their beliefs down our throats and we have no way to stop them.
I want terrorists executed too, but I believe that a US citizen is guaranteed rights until they lose them by due process of law. Sorry for wanting to follow such a noble document.
