HOMELAND SPIES MAY BE COMING - Keeping Eyes Wide Open For Liberty

(08/18/2002)

Bob Weaver

In the difficult times since 9-11 it may seem unpatriotic to question the directions of the executive branch of our government, like declaring war without congressional approval. We're familiar with that scenario.

Sen. Byrd has stalled the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security, the funding bill coming up around Labor Day.

The power to decide and move (by both political parties) on vital national issues is sometimes disconnected from our own representatives and the American public.

When proponents for civil liberties raise questions, those in power exhibit arrogance and anger toward the discussion, advising us they know what is best for America.

It would seem more Americans should be concerned about the Homeland Security measure, part of the program, to train TV cable techs, meter readers and other individuals who enter American homes, to essentially spy and report any suspicious activities.

I will not define the historical accounts of what has happened in societies who go down such paths, including our own country.

How effective such desperate measures might have on terrorism is doubtful, but the effect on our great American Experiment, civil liberties and freedom is enormous.

Every freedom loving American must have eyes wide open not only on our enemies, but on ourselves.
