Ben Franklin, Temporary Safety?
Ben Franklin said many wise things and this may be one of his best. "They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve never liberty nor safety." On the back here, I put the 4th Amendment as it seems to be the one people are willing to give up these days. The government seems to have some people convinced they need to be able to read all emails and texts and listen to all phone calls in order to protect us from terrorism. Not only is this not true, but a clear violation of the 4th Amendment.
