Don’t be deceived, our liberties and our security are a part of our system, they are not opposites

Today the New York Times has an editorial that is worth the attention of everyone across the political spectrum who cares about preserving our constitutionally guaranteed rights.  Those rights will simply cease to exist if we fail to recognize when our fears are being manipulated.  They will be strengthened when we not only accept that their are some necessary risks in liberty but there is often more to be learned from the facts and background of the issue than can be captured in some “off-the-cuff” response.
