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

“An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws.

But Rudy doesn’t care about the Marriage Amendment, and Mitt Romney does. Rudy doesn’t think there’s a problem with funding embryonic stem cell research, and Romney does.

War is peace

Ignorance is strength

Freedom is slavery
