Quotation of the Decade: Liberty Edition

From this Shahid Buttar op-ed
Oct. 26 marks the 10th anniversary of the USA Patriot Act, the first among many bipartisan government assaults on the Bill of Rights over the past decade. It is a time to mourn our lost freedoms.

Our constitutional rights have dramatically eroded, turning the “land of the free” into the “land of the easily intimidated.”

We have traded liberty for a false impression of security, and we will regret it.
