Kudos, Raymond Schratz, on your letter “More overreach”. You hit the nail right on the head with this one. The Ben Franklin quote — “Those who would trade in their freedom for their protection deserve neither. Those who give up their liberty for more security neither deserve liberty nor security.” — alone needs to be read over and over and over until it sinks in, yet as sad as it is for many, it never will.

Many believe “Big Brother” (government ) is looking out for their best interests, but in doing so, they will lose what little they have left. Hopefully, sooner or later, the general public will wake up — hopefully, before it's too late. Merry Christmas, Ray!
