You Do Not Have The Right
Dear Too Hectic,
Your letter, You Do Not Have The Right was very interesting. I thought it was well written and I really do agree with the points you made. You said that "the Bush Aministration used fear and the threat of terrorist attack to convince citizens to exchange civil rights for a perception of security." People were searched for no reason which affects and goes against the Fourth Admendment of the Consistution. Which is the right to avoid unreasonable searches. Though, I mean, since it was for our safety it might have been partly necessary but still people have the right to their privacy and shoul not be forced to let other search them. I thought that you maybe could hve included the point that by choosing people to search, it could be discrimination towards others either by race or gender. Unless he government is searching everyone.
In your first paragraph, I though that you started out really well saying that we have the right to think what we want and believe what we believe, it was very effective in getting your point across. Also I do have a question though, what if we were in danger and the only way to be protected was to search others and watch over people, do you think that the government should have the riht to do this or either way if the government does not have the right or does, it won't affect anything and the same thing will happen either way? I hope that question makes sense. And it's open fo anyone to answer.
