Post "Why Texas" revisited

The following is a post that I submitted a while back and recently someone responded, which I cherish. I love feedback, but I love to debate. So here's the post then under that I'll show you the comment that this individual made. (DO NOT GET ME WRONG! I'm not calling this person wrong, I'm not ridiculing them...I'm simply responding to the comment they made because I'm extremely interested to know how others think.)

Why Texas?

People probably read my blog and notice that I have a little problem with Texas. I don't want to appear biased so I decided I'd post an explanation. Just read this and you'll understand.*For any of those of you fortunate enough not to recognize this, it is the theme song for the TV show Walker, Texas Ranger*

In the eyes of a ranger,The unsuspecting stranger,Had better know the truth of wrong from right,'Cause the eyes of the ranger are upon you,Any wrong you do, he's gonna see,When you're in Texas, look behind you,'Cause that's where the rangers gonna be.

I don't know about you folks but anytime someone says they'll see everything I do and always be behind me I tend to worry a bit......Instead, Texans celebrate. YeeeeHaawwww, we're so stupid we've let the Government persuade us that surrendering our brains and our American rights actually makes us true American patriots.....(right about now I'm sighing deeply and shaking my head because I've been rendered speechless.)

Okay, so here was their response: "Privacy and Safety are somewhat inverse of each other. The more privacy you have, the less the gov't can keep you safe, and vice versa. Texans have just rightfully realized that it doesn't really matter if the gov't knows your every move because unless you are doing something really bad, they don't care anyway! The gov't doesn't care about what you and your boy/girlfriend do, they don't care where you are going for vacation, etc. Texans in my opinion are smart in this respect and have to decided to trade a redundant privacy for increased safety!"
Now I'll just let Mr. Benjamin Franklin respond, afterall he probably was more sensible than you and I : "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both."
