This question is posed quite often in debates and discussion forums, but we shouldn't assume, even for purposes of discussion, that exchanging freedom actually leads to better security, or that the exchange rate involved is reasonable.
We could have absolute order in our country, secure borders, no drug trade and safety from terrorists. You could also give up your gun rights, your right to an appeal in death penalty cases, and your freedom of travel. But would you want to? One reason I do not typically favor an exchange of freedom for security is that the threat to our security is not constant or consistent, but government has a poor track record when it comes to returning our freedoms to us once the threat has been removed.
For example, al-Qaeda is a shadow of its former self, and unable to mount serious attacks anywhere near our mainland, but the Patriot Act is still in effect.
