I read with misgiving your "Guarding Freedom" article. I have felt some
sense of security in what our Government has done with regard to the
unprecedented attack on the United States by terrorists.
There are people
out there who truly hate us and our way of life and they are very determined
to bring us down by whatever means it takes to get the job done and it is
still possible that they will succeed. That possibility increases
dramatically if our government does not take drastic action.
As a country
and as individuals we have been way too lax. We will very soon, I think have
to make some sacrifices and readjust our way of thinking. Are we capable of
making those sacrifices? Yes! But will we, when actually faced with the
challenges, be willing to do what it takes? I'm not at all sure.
things in this country need to change immigration policy for one. your
article spoke of our justice system. Most people would agree after
observing the OJ Simpson trial that our justice system is in need of some
reform. You ask, "does it not bother you about not knowing about certain
actions of the US Government?" My answer is: "It bothers me considerably
more to know that the terrorists are working and planning even as I write
this to destroy our nation. I do not view my government as the enemy."
