I agree. That's why we make the Government take an oath to uphold the constitution. If they don't, they're a liar and should be voted out. It's an easy way to separate liars from honest people.

The problem with individual freedom is that people refuse to use it. They walk around like sheep being herded by the TV and their electronic gadgets. Control the electronic gadgets and you control the herd.
