It isn’t necessary. There are few (if any) bogeymen out there who simply “hate us and our freedoms” borne out of nothing. Thus, there’s nothing to further “protect” against. The level of vigilance present is enough. We are fine. Put your efforts (and taxpayer dollars) into things that will enliven and empower people and our country for the future.

Please call or write your MP to express your desire for restraint in introducing any new sweeping “reforms.”
