The children are our future, and we’re boned

News flash: students are morons and don’t understand basic freedom. Now, I hated history and civics type classes just as much as the next kid, but I paid a little bit of attention. I know I get to own a gun, say what I want, etc. But 1/3 of kids thought that the 1st ammendment goes too far in guaranteeing free speech? Come on. In the post 9/11 (lordy, I wish we could come up with another name for that) it is essential that we know our rights and cling to them. There are people out there that are hoping we’ll give up rights for security. It’s not worth it.

Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security, will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. – Benjamin Franklin
