From U.S. Senator Russ Feingold

"Of course, there is no doubt that if we lived in a Police State, it
would be easier to catch terrorists.
If we lived in a country that allowed the police to search your home at
any time for any reason; if we lived in a country that allowed the
government to open your mail, eavesdrop on your phone conversations,
or intercept your email communications; if we lived in a country that
allowed the government to hold people in jail indefinitely based on what
they write or think, or based on mere suspicion that they are up to no
good, then the government would no doubt discover and arrest more
terrorists. But that probably would not be a country in which we would
want to live. And that would not be a country for which we could, in
good conscience, ask our young people to fight and die.
In Short, That Would Not Be America."

From Charles B. Shuman

The Greatest Threat to the Future of our Nation - to our Freedom - is
Not foreign military aggression - but the growing dependence of the
People on a Paternalistic government. A Nation is no stronger than its
people and the Best Measure of their Strength is how they Accept
Responsibility. There will never be a Great Society unless the
Materialism of the Welfare state is Replaced by Individual
Initiative and Responsibility.

Some Wisdom From Congressman Ron Paul

In the final analysis, the last line of defense in support of Freedom
and the Constitution consists of the People themselves. If the People
want to be Free, if they want to Lift Themselves out from underneath
a State Apparatus that Threatens their Liberties, Squanders their
Resources on Needless Wars, Destroys the Value of their Dollar, and
Spews forth Endless Propaganda about how indispensable it is and how
lost we would all be without It, there is No force that can Stop Them.

Yet More From James Madison

Liberty Lies In The Hearts Of Men And Women; When It Dies There, No
Constitution, No Law, No Court Can Save It; No Constitution, No Law,
No Court Can Even Do Much To Help It."

More from President John F, Kennedy

We Seek A Free Flow Of Information. We Are Not Afraid To Entrust The
American People With Unpleasant Facts, Foreign Ideas, Alien Philosophies,
And Competitive Values. For A Nation That Is Afraid To Let Its People
Judge The Truth And Falsehood In An Open Market Is A Nation That Is
Afraid Of Its People.

From Alexander Cockburn

Torture Is Now Solidly Installed In Americas Repressive Arsenal, Not
In The Shadows Where It Has Always Lurked, But Up Front And Central,
Vigorously Applauded By Prominent Politicians.

Wisdom From Patrick Henry

It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt
to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that
siren till she transforms us into beasts. For my part, whatever anguish
of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know
the worst, and to provide for it.

George Washington Farewell Address Sept. 7, 1796

Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and
harmony with all. The Nation which indulges toward another habitual
hatred or an habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave
to its animosity or to its aff ection, either of which is sufficient to
lead it astray from its duty and its interest.
