We need to make sure we don't fall for false premises. There are indeed problems with many aspects of the status quo. The problem with that is not "polarization" of the two major parties but rather the fact that they are TOGETHER pushing the same agendas.
If we are serious about respecting the rights of the American people then we must have truth as a starting point. We need to talk about the American people and not an abstract concept as "America." The very first thing mentioned which you think is "crucial to its security and welfare" is "worldwide terrorism"
How about we start with the truth about that? We were attacked because of specific foreign policies, NOT because of "our freedoms." We actually could end the terrorist thereat if we insisted on truth and justice! The bottom line? Dishonesty about 9/11 motives robs Americans of the freedom to decide for ourselves if we want to put our lives at risk over specific foreign policies.
