People pretending to warn us of the danger of our own acts harp on the extinguishment of civil rights if there is a major attack on us.
No such thing will happen.
American people are too protective of their actual rights to let the federal government clamp down on essential civil rights. That being said, there is no guarantee that We the People will stop the federal government from overstepping its bounds to some degree. But no matter: nothing will remove essential civil rights.
And for that matter, plotting against The Republic is not a right. It is treason, and deserves death. And so when the time comes that the federal government will clamp down on treasonous and dangerous plottings, we will have to remind our friends in hysterics what are and are not the rights we have enshrined in The Constitution.
