Security or Power Grab?

I am proud to note that Phyllis Schlafly has gone on record as being just as alarmed about the intentions of the government to restrict our freedoms in the wake of 9/11 as I am. She sums it up:
Some people seem to think it's acceptable to profile the bank accounts of law-abiding citizens, but not acceptable to profile Middle Eastern Muslim aliens who might hijack an airplane. Americans must not allow the 9/11 terrorists to turn America into a police state. The job of the federal government is to stop suspicious people at the border.
I could not have said it better myself. Just in case you missed it, Ms. Schlafly is one of the most accomplished women of her generation. Her bio says it all, but Anne Coulter says it better.
