necessary intrusions should be only as long as the problem exists.

Reader comment on item: Reflections on Obama's Inauguration
in response to reader comment: Intrustions on personal freedom by Obama

Submitted by joel carson (United States), Jan 21, 2009 at 14:11

There are times when temporary intrusions on personal freedoms must be made for the security and well being of the public.Obama will use, hopefully temporary intrusions, because of the fact that for homeland security reasons there will be warrantless wiretaps and listening for evidence of terrorism in the"private and personal" conversations of the american public.I

am very concerned because I don't trust that obamas interests will be only for the best interest and security of the country but may be to undermine the constitution.
