In regards to the Patriot Act, I believe that is the focus here, IMO, the lawful act of going after terrorist vs. freedoms lost is indeed a "bitter-sweet" emotion.

Reasonable grounds is to broad of a term that enables our government to interpret "any act/s" of an individual, to that of being a suspect for scrutinization.











Conservatism, at it bests, moves America forward on the basis of hard work, merit, equal opportunity, religious freedom, free markets and competition.

Interesting.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
Thomas Jefferson

When I think of the term "bitter sweet", something like this comes to mind.

We have survived, but at the cost of freedoms that will probably never be returned - even if we eliminate the head, the body AND the tail.
