Many — especially, it seems, judges — appear to consider Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence merely a statement.
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.
Thanks for publishing Judge Andrew P. Napolitano's excellent piece underscoring that the rights of individuals trump the rights of the state -- and more specifically, the right of individuals to defend themselves from the oppression of an unjust state ("The right to shoot tyrants, not deer," Commentary, Friday).
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.
In the Age of Obama, Uncle Sam is watching. High-tech surveillance aircraft once limited to the use of the world's largest military organizations are now finding their way to local law-enforcement agencies.
