the ends and the means

"Some congressional leaders claim that this will not affect our security," the president said. "They are wrong. Because Congress failed to act, it will be harder for our government to keep you safe from terrorist attack."
Dear President Bush,

I would rather face external threat. I would rather maintain the safeguards against government authority, the ones that have been in place for years. I do not trust you or your cronies, and I have good reasons; you have demonstrated your irresponsibility time and time again, and even if you hadn't, I still would not want to give a blank check to future unknown presidents and agencies.

Surely it is still possible to learn from the past.

Kudos - finally - to Congress. Chide away, Mr. President; we are not children to bend over your knee.
