 Reflect: Our  political system is characterized by certain fundamental features to  include a system of laws, rights, and liberties. The laws, created and  supported by the Constitutional framework, are designed to protect and  secure the rights and liberties of individuals and groups throughout the  United States. However, the government also must provide for the  security of its citizens from serious internal and external threats that  could cause severe damage to our country. Think about how the need for  homeland and national security can create a dilemma where conflicts  emerge between these security needs and the demands for civil rights and  liberties.
