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

“That men may rightfully be compelled to submit to, and support, a government that they do not want…No principle … can be more self-evidently false than this; or more self-evidently fatal to all political freedom … a man, thus subjected to a government that he does not want, is a slave. And there is no difference, in principle — but only in degree — between political and chattel slavery. The former, no less than the latter, denies a man's ownership of himself and the products of his labor; and asserts that other men may own him, and dispose of him and his property, for their uses, and at their pleasure.”     Lysander Spooner

Here’s why Andrew is more than qualifed for the new job:

If I had to make a pick about which Napolitano serves as Attorney General, I’d choose the one who is equally critical of both political parties, the one who chooses constitutionality over partisanship, and the one who favors civil liberties over politics as normal in DC.
