This is not an erosion of rights. Rather, it is our rights being exercised. How? Under the state of emergency that Homeland Security was created, such things as this become legal, and an upholding of our rights. We have accepted the Constitution and the state of emergency as part of our rights.

Who determines what a state of emergency is and how long it can last? A lot of people are still scared over 9/11, including Congress. So they agree with the President, at least to some extent. Don't Constitutional provisions allow Congress and the President to determine aspects of what an SoE is, and when it is to exist?

At what point does the state of emergency become the emergency itself, and who determines when we have reached that point? If we, the people, feel that the state of emergency is over, we need to lobby Congress so that they order the President to stop it. We need to out-lobby all those who are lobbying for continued SoE. We need to get after our State Governments to put pressure on our Senators from the State.

When is it the time to literally make a Congressional Act - a law - that says that the SoE is to be repealed or rescinded? We need to put pressure on Congress to make changes.

I, also, have been lax in raising my voice.
