What is freedom without civil liberties?

The erosion of our civil liberties and privacy frightens and concerns me.

The other side claims that these measures are necessary to "ensure our safety" and so forth, but I call bullshit. Prove to me that this makes me safer. Prove to me that this does not slide us further down the slippery slope.

Senate approves increased domestic surveillance and retroactively gives immunity to companies that previously, perhaps illegally, turned over our private information to the government.
