Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“The practical difficulty with our government has been that most of those who have administered it have taken it for granted that the Constitution, as it is written, was a thing of no importance; that it neither said what it meant, nor meant what it said…”     Lysander Spooner

  1. Ah, yes. The days when television shows helped educate the public as to their rights and duties as citizens.

    Now we get American Idol and professional wrestling and Entertainment Tonight where they talk about which diva flashed her bald crotch at the paparazzi this week.

    Oh, and “24″ where Jack Bauer beats the necessary information out of whoever he has to in order to prevent a bomb from going off.

  2. “24″, brought to you by the same progressive hollywood that screams bloody murder about Gitmo. Now, I detest Gitmo AND “24″, but I suspect that hollywood, and the rest of the progressives, only hate Gitmo because it is GW Bush running the place.

  3. There’s an indictment on the current understanding of constitutional and individual rights!

    Seems to me that if a young hick named “Opie” can grasp it, so could an old hick named “Dubya.”
