The Magna Carta - The Rebirth Of Freedoms
The Magna Carta was created in 1215 AD and was an important limitation on governmental oppression.
The liberties that became part of the western world were founded in this first step of individual freedoms. In part:
No freeman shall be taken, imprisoned, or in any way destroyed, except by the lawful judgment of his peers.
Please join me in a moment of sadness that these liberties for which the west was once famous have joined the Magna Carta as a historical footnote.
More recently we received this warning:
"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious, and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist." - Winston Churchill
If you are thinking you are not part of the problem because your party is pure as driven snow; this is not a Conservative vs. Liberal issue - it is a totalitarian vs, freedom issue.
Be part of a solution.
One final quote:
"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have." - Thomas Jefferson
- Including your freedom.
