Pollfish conducted a poll following last week's Boston bombing on the subject of security and government policy.
One of the questions asked in the poll:
Do you think security measures should be stricter in the future?
39% supported the position that security measures "should be stricter" while 35% agreed only if the stricter measures "don't affect my privileges and comfort." Only 26% opposed stricter security measures.
This is one of the big policy issues of our time: the balance between security and freedom. Benjamin Franklin once wrote, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
