Don't sacrifice privacy or you'll lose even more

There is no substitute for your freedom and right to privacy. Historically our Constitution has proven true and strong against countless negative forces.

To suggest a compromise just for peace of mind or convenience would be an irreversible mistake regretted forever. The evils and threats surfacing about the world today are no different from others of the past, only recognizable by another name.

Read our Constitution. Understand it. Stand up for what was rightfully claimed by leading concerned citizens who cared enough to look ahead and afford us the ability to avoid the pitfalls and potential harm existing today.

The boundaries and limits of our Constitution are for your benefit and protection. Do not sacrifice your right of 100 percent privacy. If so, for what? Eighty-five percent? Fifty-two percent? Where will it end?

Remember the small crack in the dam.
