Topic - Andrew P. Napolitano
I would like to thank you for publishing Andrew P. Napolitano's column, "A pact with the devil in Boston" (Commentary, April 26). We need to be reminded clearly and strongly that surrendering our liberty does not bring safety, unless it is the safety of prison.
In recent years, the American left has increasingly styled itself "progressive." This trend reflects the public repudiation of the moniker "liberal" -- a term U.S. social democrats had previously expropriated and shorn of its original commitment to economic liberty -- but also harkens back to the early-20th century Progressive Movement that sought to expand the federal government's role vis-a-vis the states, businesses and individuals.
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano is the popular senior judicial analyst for the Fox News Channel and the former host of "FreedomWatch" on Fox Business Network. The youngest judge with life tenure in the history of New Jersey's Superior Court, he presided over more than 150 jury trials between 1987 and 1995.
In "November's unenviable choices" (Commentary, Thursday) Judge Andrew P. Napolitano equally blames President Obama, along with his administration, and the Republicans for bad government spending. Judge Napolitano compares Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican and GOP vice-presidential candidate pick, to Democrats -- even though Mr. Ryan submitted the best budget plan so far and the Democrats have had no budget for almost four years.
Andrew P. Napolitano, a former judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey and senior judicial analyst at Fox News Channel, has written seven books on the U.S. Constitution.
