vpResident Evil on Fox: Waterboarding “good policy”Posted: August 30, 2009 Filed under: Human Rights, SCOTUS | Tags: Cheney, Louis D. Brandeis, Torture, U.S. Constitution, waterboarding Comments Off on vpResident Evil on Fox: Waterboarding “good policy”
Fox News has just posted RAW DATA: Transcript of Cheney on ‘FOX News Sunday’. I’m not a lawyer and I’m certainly no expert on national security. I try to keep to economics because I have training and expertise there. Some times, because I’ve been given front page privileges, I bring things up that I’ve read because they just shake me to my core. I really believe from the bottom of what I feel is right and wrong that the policies pushed on this country by Dick Cheney were beyond pale and the U.S Constitution. I’d like to compare Cheney’s thoughts to some other Americans who have known the privilege of serving the American public and taken oaths to uphold our Constitution. I consider these Americans to be the experts that I am not on matters of the U.S. Constitution and Liberty.
Here is a quote from a great American justice that encapsulates what I feel right now as I share the contents of that interview.
The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal — well-meaning but without understanding.
Louis D. Brandeis
Then, there are these thoughts from two great Presidents and Statesmen.
The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.
The history of liberty is the history of the limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it. When we resist the concentration of power we are resisting the powers of death. Concentration of power precedes the destruction of human liberties.
Then, there is the granddaddy of all liberty quotes.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
