|Every security proposal should be weighed against its costs in
lost privacy and time and also limited by constitutional guarantees against
unreasonable search and seizure. Our nation's commitment to freedom
makes it worth protecting, so the means of our protection must not
unreasonably degrade that freedom.||I will work to restore civil liberties that have been
compromised under current policy. I oppose warrantless searches,
wiretapping and mining of personal data without court oversight.
Telecommunications companies that violated the law should be held
accountable. The goals of national security can be met while maintaining
Constitutional protections. ||Uphold the Constitution. Restore jury trial for “ALL
crimes” and Habeas Corpus, uses Congresses power to “make
exceptions” to Unconstitutional Court decisions. Restore free exercise
of religion, speech, and press. Repeal the Patriot Act. As most of it is
repugnant to the Constitution. Abolish the IRS, and the Federal Reserve.
