Judge Napolitano: What Happened to America?
Many who are heavily invested in or subsidized by big government will suggest that people like Judge Napolitano are on the fringe, that his ideas are quaint, and those who still espouse those ideas are crude troublemakers. But the idea of limiting government is neither quaint nor obscolete. It is the principal the United States was founded under and is still mankind's last great hope. It is not so much an ideology, but a meta-politic designed to give rise to the most diverse possible ways of living and pursuing happiness. It requires freedom. It is the latticework of peace. Indeed, here's a question: when we consider modern history we have to ask: what organization has committed more atrocities, religion or government? There is simply no contest. Governments, if they are necessary at all, must have their powers checked.
