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

“There comes a time in the life of every human when he or she must decide to risk "his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor" on an outcome dubious. Those who fail the challenge are merely overgrown children, can never be anything else.”     Robert A. Heinlein,    Stranger in a Strange Land

Also, I’d like to thank Alabama’s 101.1FM host Lee Davis for inviting Robert Stacy McCain and me to his studio for a full hour yesterday.  Likewise, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for the great fun I had on her program earlier this week. And don’t forget contributor Jason Pye’s recent coverage of Tea Party issues on Neil Cavuto.

The primary topics of interest for the week range from Tea Parties to the Homeland Security document we recently disclosed, and are combined with issues ranging from piracy to economics.  Many of this week’s visitors are conservative, although we’ve had a lot of traffic from liberal and libertarian sites, as well.  Bearing this in mind, I’d like each of you to consider the following quote, which was attributed to Benjamin Franklin:

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

For the last eight years, the left has been justly criticizing the right for their disregard of civil liberties.  Now the right is justly outraged about the recent DHS documents disclosed here.  For the last eight years, some on the right have been castigating those on the left honestly looking to protect civil rights.  Currently, some on the left are doing the same to the right.

The last time I checked, the Bill of Rights wasn’t a partisan document and if there is one thing on which we should all be able to work together, it’s the protection of these fundamental rights.  Civil liberties shouldn’t be a left or right issue, but an American one.

  10. Thanks for the mention! With each passing day, Mr. Obama scares me just a little bit more. What can he be thinking with regard to the CIA/INTERROGATION?
