You could do a paper on the slow stripping away of our civil liberties and the choice that we as a people must ultimately make between whether or not we accept the added 'security' with fewer rights or to insist on our freedoms despite the greater possible risk to our safety. I personally prefer freedom and risk to 'security' and enslavement. (Good title idea) The irony is, that the greater 'security' is really no security at all. We are slowing becoming imprisoned and loosing our ability to oppose the govt in the manner that our founding fathers intended us to be able to do. It was always in their mind that we should ultimately have the power and RIGHT to actually overthrow the govt if they stepped outside their legitimate powers and began to acquire too much power over we, the people.
This problem started in earnest with FDR and his sweeping legislation bringing us out of the depression. I don't know the details, but have heard that it angered a lot of people at the time because it significantly infringed on civil liberties. Clearly, the present Bush is seeking to strip us of certain civil liberties and a great many others -presidents and congresses, from FDR to present day Bush - have sought to do the same. Plenty of material for a 7 page paper. Good luck.

That would absolutely fill 5-7 pages if you present both sides. You could start with 9/11, and present how maybe it could've been prevented if surveillance was allowed and how surveillance can prevent another one. What terrorist plots has surveillance prevented around the world. Look at other countries that use surveillance, has it decreased crime at all? Where is the balance between privacy rights and national security?
I think unbiased means you have to represent each side fairly. You can have an opinion and even put it in the paper as long as the other side is fairly treated.
Edit: Depending on how much research you want to put in you could check with your public or school library and see if they have access to the "Opposing Viewpoints" database from Gale. It presents essays and journal articles by smart people on both sides a topic.
