Last night, on CNN3 I heard a panel discussion about Presidential powers during time of war.
One of the questions posed about eavesdropping on citizens was decidedly the wrong question:
The man asked, 'What harm could it do?"
Amazingly, no one challenged this absurd question.
This is the litmus test we have come to, today? Measuring the harm our country is doing and deciding how much is too much?
What has happened to the notion that a governing body is supposed to at least pretend to do good? That it is supposed to at least pretend to do the will of the people?
This one is blatantly asking, 'What can we get away with before sparking a rebellion in this country?'
Before all is said and done, it may come to that if these are the questions our government officials are asking themselves these days.
