article imageOp-Ed: Miss Alabama is okay with government tracking her phone calls

This year's "Miss Alabama" appears to be among those Americans who believe it's acceptable for the government to randomly spy on American citizens in order to "protect them."
A clear result of the indoctrination of the American public school system, this year's "Miss Alabama" in the Miss USA pageant completely disregarded the fourth amendment and other protections citizens have under natural law and the Constitution and Bill of Rights, saying that it's okay for the government to spy on citizens in order to "keep them safe" from the Islamic boogeyman.
When asked about the recent NSA spying scandal, Mary Margaret (aka Miss Alabama) said "I think in the society that we live in today it's sad that if we go to the movies or to the airport or even to the mall that we have to worry about our safety. So I would rather someone track my telephone messages and feel safe wherever I go then feel like they're encroaching on my privacy."
Of course it would be a crazy idea to think that we could all protect ourselves instead of relying on government to spy on us in order to do so but the judges apparently enjoyed her response as she wound up being the first runner up next to Erin Brady, Miss Connecticut.
At least her response wasn't as bad as that of Miss Utah who said we need to "create education better" in response to a question about a woman's role in the workforce.
