Must Not Sacrifice Liberty for Security

“For each new law enacted, 10 other laws must be repealed.” - Lewis V. Hall

I cringe whenever I hear about any new legislation, since I feel I have lost a little more of my liberty. It is my opinion that any legislation spawned by horrible tragedy most often results in poor public policy in the long term. Remember, “Liberty once lost is lost forever” – John Adams

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”  - Benjamin Franklin in February 17, 1775 as part of his notes for a proposition at the Pennsylvania Assembly
