    Just as the title suggests.

    I am following this lead from Sean Hannity: http://www.hannity.com/

    Would you be willing to give up some personal freedom in the fight against terrorism?

    Yes, but I'd rather know what those freedoms are before voting.

    It doesn't matter. Would you be willing to part with some of your freedoms?

    I don't know why your tying it to the war against Terrorism. Everytime a law is passed, regardless of circumstance, you're giving up freedom. Seat belt and helmet laws for instance.

    Well, you said you were following his lead...

    And what are you doing on the "enemy's" site? I don't even go there, or listen to his show for that matter!

    I disagree...it does matter.

    Would you be willing to gain freedom to fight the war on terror?

    gee, let's see...how about the freedom to shoot persians at will.

    Just trying to flip the vaguery upside down to make a point. I think you need to be less general if not more specific in order for this poll to make any sense.

    my two bits.

    In the whole scheme of things it doesn't matter. Either you are willing to part with some of your freedoms or you are not.

    It DOES matter.

    There's a difference between freedoms we simply enjoy and freedoms that equate to our quality of life.

    Yes, it matters.

    Are you willing to part with any freedoms? Yes or No, simple not tough.

    So it's your rules or we can't play?

    P.S. FOX NEWS runs in this household about 24/7. I admire O'Reilly and Hannity. Though, somehow, I treat all Americans the same. Somehow, I don't let "politics" get in the way with how I treat people. Hmmm, fancy that.

    there is a scary reality - before terrorism, we were already giving up our freedom, everyday, throught the continual sharing or our personal information on the internet. Slowly, but surley, more people were alowing copanies, strangers and government officals, monitor thee lives and turn them into numbers (like hits on a web page). It may sound silly, bu the slow burningof american freedom can be more dangerouse then that taken throught the fears of terrorism - mainly due to it's 'out of sight' position.

    No, you can play alright you just have to decide if you are willing to part with some of your freedoms or not.

    P.S. Fox news runs in this household too, although not 24/7 and probably not for the same reasons as yours. I like to see what some of these folks are up to. I like to see Ol' Falafel get all worked up when he gets caught in his web lies halve-truths. Hannity is amusing to watch, him and mAnn Coulter make a great tag team on dissenters.

    How about the forced religion of the state disguised as welfare.

    I don't have the freedom to choose my charity or no charity. Charity is forced upon me by law. How do you feel about that freedom being taken from you?

    Well how about I put it this way. If I can't have quality of life, put a bullet in my head.

    Would the personal freedom be returned upon successful completion of the fight?
