What Does the Constitution Say?

The United States Constitution states many principles of constitutional law that must be present in for Democracy to truly exist. Democracy is characterized by freedom and liberty to think and believe individually and the freedom to express those beliefs through speech that does not trod upon or offend others. The travesties against justice n committed in the name of Democracy is an affront to all that was intended, fought, and died in attaining in America.

Freedom, liberty and justice not only in America indeed, for the entire world. But there are limitations within the realm of freedom and justice, for it is not freedom or justice in the forcing of what is termed Democracy upon other nations However, Lady Liberty does idealistically answer to those who call. The administration of justice and legislation of morality too does not abide by the principles of the Constitution as history has shown. Further the wiretapping non-compliance has been historically a reappearing problem within the government and administration of the United States. When did this non-compliance begin, what are the roots and cause?

Conclusion:

It appears that terrorism, although something to fear, is not the main concern, but indeed the preservation of the Constitutional rights, whether due war or times of peace should be utmost in the concern of American citizens.
