I was just watching a clip over at GritTV with Barack Obama where he mentions to Harry whatshisname at CBS news that his job as Commander in Chief would be to keep America safe. His job as Senator and if he becomes president is to uphold the constitution. That is what keeps us safe as a nation.
This 'safety' bullshit flies directly in the face of the constitution.
Shit happens in a democracy. Shit happens in life. Do we want to live in a cocoon safely or take our chances and live freely?
