Today is the eleventh anniversary of the tragic events that changed our nation forever. I think it’s time to ask some hard questions. The rubble was still smoldering at ground zero when everyone in the “mainstream” media began telling us not to hate the people responsible for this carnage. If we hate the rag-heads, they told us, the terrorist will have won! Really?
The truth of the matter is that the terrorist will have won when we let the powers that be turn this country into a virtual police state. A country with video surveillance cameras at nearly every intersection. A country that allows warrantless wiretaps of suspected “terrorist”. A country where any citizen can be detained indefinitely without due process of law.
The terrorist will have won when we have a government that uses aerial drones to spy on its own citizens. If we have TSA agents molesting travelers at every turn then the terrorist will have won. If we allow the government to track the emails, text messages, and internet usage of every single person in this country then the terrorist will have won. So I ask the question again. Did the terrorist win or what?
