Protecting us from those pesky freedoms

Hillary Clinton: "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good. "

Originally, I thought that just referred to our money. Silly me. That's just the beginning.

So, what else will be taken?

How about our right to privacy? Yup.

Our right to defend ourselves? That, too.

Our right to choose where our children are educated? Kiss that one goodbye, too.

Hillary is currently looking for a "theme song" for her campaign. I'd like to suggest she could also use a nice, catchy slogan to sum up what voting for her means.

Too bad "from each according to their ability, to each according to their need" is already taken.

bryanD:

I'm confident that Hillary won't get the nomination because she is so very, very beatable. Even her supporters admit that Other People don't like her. The Dems will do her in themselves behind the curtain if neccessary. With the whole government within reach in '08, the DNC will not risk it. No way. As your links show: she's has Leninist proclivities. Add in the Stalinist personality. The Lenin they can abide, but even Stalin's people made sure he didn't wake up from that last coma.

Most of her hype simply comes with being a New York senator. New York loves New York and the media is based in New York and they don't want any hassles from some cabbie or doorman. It feeds on itself.

Freedom from government? Ja... (Below threshold)
Matt:

Freedom from government? Jay Tea, you have a very narrow conception of the word, in that you conceive it as a negation; merely a lack of interference. It's the simplest way to think about the word, but hardly the most robust. What about positive freedoms? Amartya Sen has built a Nobel Prize-winning career as an economist, illuminating the social, economic, and moral problems associated with a negative-freedom-trumps-all mentality. Development As Freedom is chock full of empirical and theoretical examples to this effect.

Freedom to be healthy; to be educated; to not feel shame... these freedoms are not free, as it were. Even Adam Smith, champion of unfettered markets, held the conviction that people were entitled to live above a certain threshold, and that ensuring this is a responsibility that all society must bear. The United States obviously will always place a greater emphasis on individual responsibility than most other Western nations, for better or worse, but to state that the country is all about freedom, when having in a mind a purely libertarian understanding of the word, begs several moral questions about the role of government and what constitutes a fair and just society.

Matt:

Oh grow up, you faux-libertarians. The most heavily taxed states make massive transfer payments to the have-not states to sustain their infrastructure, and guess what? Most "have" states are blue. The people so terrified of the Red Menace that is social democracy are often dependent upon its workings. Unless some lunatic Republican stands up and says "I will cut all taxes to 0% and abolish government," ya'll will have to settle for somebody on the same spectrum as Clinton, as there is no political candidate in either relevant party that has as much respect for "freedom" as Jay Tea seems to think they should. (Some may make noises to the contrary, but it's just noise, not action.)

Come on Matt, quit writing left wing garbage to satisfy your left wing communism spewing professor. This is the real world. It seems the 'religion of peace' is set to destroy several 'blue' cities. The pain of their loss will last about as long as the normal headache, especially if they take out a few million left wingers during the destruction. I don't know of one thing 'vital to life' that is produced in a city. Now the Redneck farmer is a different story. Without them life ends for everyone in the cities anyway.

Fallicious appeal authority... make your argument without relying on it.

If someone has the "right" to live above a certain threshold then someone else must have the "responsibility" to provide them what they cannot or will not produce. Or in other words, one person's "need" is a claim on another person's production.. another person's life. Given that I have a right to my production, that means their "need" trumps my right to my production. The "right" to be a parasite trumps the right to one's life ?

Justrand:

as for Hillary's theme song...I suggest Billy Joel's "She's Always a Woman" [some emphasis added by Moi]

She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see

She hides like a child
But she's always a woman to me

She can lead you to live
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
She steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She will promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'

But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me

She is frequently kind
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She's nobody's fool
But she can't be convicted
She's earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you

But she's always a woman to me

Matt has confused freedom to PURSUE certain things versus a right to HAVE them. Typical lib. incoherence. We have a right to the pursuit of happiness, property, etc. through liberty, but liberty confers no property rights.

If, as bryanD thinks, Hillary's going down in the primaries, then who in the Hell is going to be the strong nominee? I hate to say this, but old Hil still makes Obama and Edwards look like pygmies. If this is all you guys got, you're hosed in '08.

As far as civil liberties are concerned, we have never been so save in them. Could Lincoln have imagined a de facto right of habeas corpus for enemy combatants? Lincoln abolished habeas writs for American CITIZENS, for God's sake.

Matt:

Morons. Cities in India that invested heavily in social programs have much higher standards of living than cities that did not. The same goes for China. I was talking about Amartya Sen's empirical research, not your knee-jerk comparisons of Detroit to Onehorseville, Idaho. It's empirically irrefutable.

And for some stupid clowns to bring Islam into the discussion belies the bigotry and inanity of so many who pollute the internet with their brain-droppings. Move along, children, there are adults who wish to have a discussion.

Until every child born in the United States has the freedom to pursue life as a healthy, educated individual regardless of their social/economic situation, ya'll should really stop talking about freedom like you care about it, because you clearly don't. (Duties to others might limit your freedom, but hey, society is a competition of freedoms and you owe people less fortunate than yourselves capital whether or not you consent to this filthy socialist arrangement. See: Rousseau, Jean-Jacques.)

Gee... Bush eavesdrops on anyone he wants, anytime, without court authorization, and that's just fine and dandy. But what you accuse Hillary of is taking away our "right to privacy". By the way, if Hillary does become president and taps your phones, it'll be because Bush gave her that authorization.

You guys are funny.

Not to mention the absurdity of the lame argument that because one particular person has not experienced the loss of a liberty that therefore society as a whole does not suffer. I suppose non-gun-owners would have no justification for decrying violations of the 2nd amendment?

bryanD:

"If, as bryanD thinks, Hillary's going down in the primaries, then who in the Hell is going to be the strong nominee?"

I think Gore will enter the race and get the Democratic nomination by near acclamation and with great relief. (The Democratic pols until then are afraid to get on the wrong side of Hillary.) Once Gore enters, Hillary will deflate quickly and will angle for the Veep spot. She will be refused and be offered a cabinet post. Then it will be her turn to refuse the offer, and she'll stay in the senate until Doomsday.
If Obama doesn't dry up and blow away (highly likely), he will be offered the VP spot.
The Gore ticket will beat a STRONG Republican ticket by only 277-261. That leaves no room for Hillary's negatives to swing a Pennsylvania or Illinois ,say, to the Republicans. That would mean the election. Hillary must not be on the ticket!!!
(A weak, neo-con-infested Republican ticket will be routed 337-201, maybe more.)
That's why I think Gore will be persuaded to enter. The presidency is not NECCESSARILY in the bag for the Democrats. Romney vs Obama for example: Dems lose. Hillary's borderline. Not good enough.

Civil liberties I've lost:

- right to see any evidence the government has against me.
- right to even see the accusations that the government has against me.

But besides that, everything's awesome.

And FYI - these are rights lost to US citizens, not just 'enemy combatants' from foreign countries.

I can hear the argument already - "Just don't every do anything wrong, and you have nothing to fear!"

How would you feel if your worst nightmare came true, and Hillary Clinton became president. Thanks to the precedent set by President Bush, she could now imprison you for any length of time, with no charges, with no impartial review of your case, for any reason - and she doesn't even have to GIVE a reason. And she doesn't even have to notify anyone that she's imprisoned you. And you dont' have any right to visit anyone unless Hillary lets you.

Does that sounds like a good situation to you?

It's not just about this President; it's about the power in the hands of all Presidents that follow.

You guys know how bureaucracies can be; you guys are supposed to be very wary of Federal power. Imagine I got thrown in jail because an information lied. Happens all the time. What can I do about it now? Maybe I can pray.

right to an attorney You're just not watching the right channels on TV! I just saw TWO ads for attorneys in the last 30 minutes! I don't need one...but they certainly seem available! Where do you live again? Cuba??

right to have anyone even know if the government has me Well, assuming the government "has you"...you just let us know!! You've been watching "X-Files" again, haven't you?

Warrantless wiretapping. 'Nuff said.

So you think:
a) the Federal government never makes mistakes
b) US citizens being denied due process is AWESOME
c) only bad guys go to jail, and only good guys run for office?

If that's what you think, then I guess US Military lawyers must hate America and want the terrorists to win. Because they said:

http://www.villagevoice.com/news/0409,hentoff,51428,6.html

"The military commissions will not provide a full and fair trial. . . . The commission process has been created and controlled by those with a vested interest only in convictions."

And of course they were then sacked for daring to uphold their oaths to the Constitution:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/guantanamo/story/0,13743,1098618,00.html

And guess what? Rights denied any US citizen are rights denied to all US citizens.

Benjamin Franklin said "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

Do you disagree?

With that in mind, please think on this:

"It should take far more than the monstrous brutality of a handful of terrorists to drive us to abandon our core constitutional values. We can effectively combat terrorism in the United States without jettisoning the core due process principles that form the essence of the rule of law underlying our system of government.

"Insistence on the rule of law will not undermine our national security. Abandoning the rule of law will threaten our national identity."

Brian: "Warrantless wiretapping. 'Nuff said."

That was your argument that the "right to privacy" was being trampled by Bush (but not Bill Clinton, of course). In that context wiretapping WITH a Warrant is destroying your right to privacy as well...and all the arguments you made about the Government making mistakes would apply in that case.

as for "It should take far more than the monstrous brutality of a handful of terrorists to drive us to abandon our core constitutional values."...

The Supreme Court wrestled with what came to be known as the "Clear and Present Danger Test" in 1919. This, however, was essentially an extension of the principles Lincoln used in preserving the Union. The Constiution is NOT a "suicide pact"...nor should it be one. We have more rights in this country than in any country in the history of mankind! One of those rights is the right to LIFE. It's the first one, in fact.

Which brings me to this point...and where we most diverge.

IF this plot was broken up using WARRANTLESS wiretaps, ILLEGAL searches and seizures, and other "nefarious" means, then I would STILL be happy!! If you would prefer that hundreds or thousands of people died RATHER than revert to such methods, then I would ask how you would explain that philospohy to the families of the victims of their plot...had it gone forward??

I'd like to know if Comey stonewalling the administration about their voluntary 45 day review period, which necessitated the midnight hospital run of much derision by the ignorant, interrupted any surveillance that might have been able to stop the Spanish train bombing. Comey provoked an emergency the night before the explosions in Spain. If anxiety or concern that the program might not be extended contributed to a failure of intelligence in that matter, then their is hell for Comey to pay.
