Quote of The Day - The Rights of Enemies

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."

- Thomas Paine


I firmly believe in this concept and have strived to stay true to it in my writings on this blog. I suspect it is one of the key reasons why the views I espouse are held in contempt by so many on both sides of the political aisle.l

Mike,

I stand with you on that - everyone has a right to be free and heard. (No contempt here).
BTW - it's hard to go wrong quoting Thomas Paine!
