Shouldn't it be "To sacrifice 'it'"? Though maybe, as an Australian, this how Queen's English would have it? Or maybe, as an idiot American, I don't know what I'm talking about. Note: Although an idiot, I always vote, and I've NEVER voted for a Bush. I agree with the ideas expressed in this quote, as I agree with Benjamin Franklin's sentiments when he wrote, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety,” in 1755. Unfortunately, my representatives in Congress forgot this when they passed the so-called Patriot Act.
