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

“It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, "We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government." This idea that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power, is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”     Ronald Reagan

Quote of the Day: No Winners Edition

by Stephen Littau

Ultimately, it is the job of the media to give straight, objective coverage of any story.

Whatever the final verdict on Zimmerman, the media is clearly guilty of playing on the most primitive racial divisions in our society to fuel racial animosity and boost ratings.

There are no winners here. -Juan Williams

  1. I don’t watch TV, but I was eating at a Burger King and could not avoid hearing the three talking heads on FoxTV. FoxTV played clips from the trial, and the trio commented on them. The woman journalist (I don’t know her name.) was as blatantly biased towards the prosecution as any super-liberal idiot at CBS. The two men seemed to be commentators and not journalists. They, at least, listened to what was said, and provided reasoned comments. It’s interesting (though not surprising) that the journalist was hyperemotional and heavily biases.
