Hi Bernd & all,
SOME of us in the US are VERY VERY concerned about the current
situration and fears being used to erode basic constitutional rights.
For SOME REASON, who knows what, the "right" has seemed to be,
generally, more into "law enforcement" at the risk of eroding
rights and the "left" GENERALLY, into protecting personal rights over
increasing conviction rates. I do not know WHY it is a "left/right"
issue, at all, and I see protecting contitutional rights as CONSERVATIVE
in its very nature.
In any event - if the citizens of the US do not stand up to the
RIGHT NOW on this issue, we can expect more than our email being read!
(See the Jefferson quote, below, currently attached to all my emails! -
FYI, Ben Franklin uttered VERY similar words on this topic).
