    Probably a false construction or tradeoff. How about liberty with peace would not that be the best deal. Ask anyone or study anyone who has been enslaved and ask how much peace there is in that. Some including myself do not feel very much at liberty when crime, illegality, and fear stalk the streets of the nation.
