Quotation "Sometimes we need to give even the Devil the benefit of the law. Why? Because if all laws are cut down and the Devil turns 'round on us, where could we hide? None of us could withstand the winds that would blow then."
-Robert Bolt in his play "A Man For All Seasons"

"The Media is no longer in the business of reporting the news, they are in the business of creating it. And this is very dangerous."
-Jesse the Body Ventura

"Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means-to declare that the government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal-would bring terrible retribution."
-Louis D. Brandeis Supreme Court Justice 1856-1941

"Where secrecy begins. vice and roguery are not far off."
-Samuel Johnson British Author

"There is no one more Liberal than a Republican who's been indicted, and no one more Conservative than a Democrat who's been mugged."
-Hubert Santos Ct. Criminal Defense Lawyer

"The difference between crime in the streets and crime in the Suites is found only in the punishment."
-Dennis Hogan Columnist

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor. It emboldens the blood just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fevered pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the Rights of the citizenry. Rather the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by Patriotism will offer up all of their Rights unto their leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."
-Julius Caesar on Patriotism.

"Never let Religion interfere with your belief in God."

" Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, then that of blindfolded fear."
- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr (1787)

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.
- Marcus Tullius Cicero - (Ancient Roman Lawyer, Writer, Scholar, Orator and Statesman, 106 BC-43 BC)

"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."
- Justice Robert Jackson -

"If one would give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest man, I would find something in them to have him hanged." - 17th-century French clergyman and statesman Cardinal Richelieu. -

The wealthy have controlled this country by convincing chickens to vote for Colonel Sanders, turkeys to vote for Thanksgiving, and middle class voters to send their own jobs overseas.
