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

“The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections.”     Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson,    West Virginia Board of Education vs. Barnette, 1943

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Via Coyote, after seeing an E-Verify poster that states “If you have the right to work, Don’t let anyone take it away”:

This is fairly Orwellian for those of us who believe that all people have the right to work, irrespective of the country they were born in, and this right does not flow from any national government and therefore does not stop or start at any border.

Indeed.
