I went to the town meeting that Trina Magi and Bernie Sanders hosted at Vermont Law School last week. It’s nice to know that a local news report about the meeting was entered into the Congressional Record.
One man asked how to best strike a balance between preserving civil liberties and vigilance against terrorist threats. Magi said it was something people would have to decide for themselves. “I think it’s really legitimate to be afraid of terrorists,” she said. “We can also be afraid of an overreaching government that stretches too far into our lives. There are plenty of examples of lives that were ruined by a government that was not restrained.” [thanks ej]
