Congress Protests Bush Domestic Surveillance

The Washington Post reports on Congressional response to the news that Bush authorized spying on American citizens. While many members objected, once (and perhaps future) Republican Senate leader Trent Lott expressed a different opinion. “I don’t agree with the libertarians,” said Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.). “I want my security first. I’ll deal with all the details after that.”

For the rebuttal we go to Benjamin Franklin:

“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”
