This is an article that I'm posting just for your consideration. Coming from Mr. Hentoff of [i]The Village Voice[/i], I cannot completely vouchsafe its factual contents. The article is found at: [url]http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0139/hentoff.php[/url] A good blurb from the article - "The explanation for this eagerness to relinquish our supposedly cherished freedoms is not only the rage and fear at the shocking numbers of civilians murdered on our own land by foreign fanatics for the first time in our history. "The more frightening reason why the government can have confidence in our support is that most Americans have only the dimmest notion of what their constitutional freedoms are — and what it took to get them. So there is little concern that they and other Americans can be caught in dragnets of suspicion by a government that has suspended much of the Bill of Rights. "This willingness to surrender what we're supposed to be fighting for is a recurring part of our history. During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln imprisoned newspaper editors and other dissenters against his policies. In addition, he suspended the oldest right of English-speaking peoples, habeas corpus. 'The Constitution,' Lincoln explained, 'is not a suicide pact.' "How many Americans, right now, would disagree with that conclusion?" Eric The(Saddened,IfTrue)Hun[>]:)]

He is making it all up. The Bill of Rights is a myth.
