Sometimes, in order to protect our freedom, we have to violate these freedoms, such as arresting the editor of the magazine, or raiding its offices of suspected terrorists. And I'm talking about the freedom of AMERICANS, not some sun-baked towelhead who has been here for only a few years.
Sieg fucking heil.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
