Homeland Security's Scared Dumb Ron Johnson to take away our freedoms first. Terrorists win.

One thing is becoming very clear; Republican principles are nothing more than shifting moments in time, to be rationalized away once they're no longer convenient.

Our own Dumb Ron Johnson, a guy who never could figure out the Affordable Care Act, in now the Senate Chairman of Homeland Security. Remember his insightful prediction about ObamaCare:
It’s an assault on our freedom. It’s going to lower the quality of our care. It’s going to lead to rationing. The types of medical innovation that saved my daughter’s life [and] that saves millions of Americans -- I wont’ say it’s going to come to a grinding halt but it’s going to be severely limited.”
Johnson brings that same panicky misguided expertise to Homeland Security. What may be the most shocking thing ever said by a senator (except for Joe McCarty), from a guy trusted to protect our freedom, was this jaw dropper:
Johnson: "We start seeing these types of attacks, multiple attacks on our homeland, think of how our freedoms will be restrained, how they'll be impaired...infringed upon if we have to address a far more robust terrorist environment." 
That's Johnson's plan? Hand it to the hosts of the Devil's Advocates for being just as stunned as I was over Johnson's quick surrender. Our freedoms have never been in more dangerous hands as Johnson, or the Republicans.

What's even more worrisome is Dumb Ron Johnson's rationalization
Devil's Dominic Salvia: "But is the answer, no matter the threat, to limit the civil liberties of U.S. citizens to catch the bad guys...what would envision if that happened:

Johnson: "I can't specify it right now, but let's face it, right now we have restrictions on our freedom because we're going to try and preserve our security driving down the road, I'm going to have to go here and I'm going to have to go 35 mph...we restrict our freedom, we don't allow us to drive 70 mph down this road because it keeps us more secure."

Devil's Dominic Salvia: "By reacting like that, is that not the point, isn't that what the terrorists want that kind of reaction, to make us less free by the fear that they instill?"

Johnson: "Precisely, and look what they've already accomplished..."
...and Johnson wants to keep their accomplishments coming. He's the chair of Homeland Security folks. Hang onto your freedoms while you can:
