"I discharge every person under punishment or prosecution

under the Sedition Law, because I considered, and now consider,

that law to be a nullity as absolute and palpable as if Congress

had ordered us to fall down and worship a golden image."

"Stop wasting jail space on prostitutes, drug users and other

victimless criminals. Even if we find it morally acceptable to

imprison these people for choices they make regarding their bodies,

we must realize that we simply cannot afford to continue clogging

the court system and the prison system with these harmless criminals."

-- Edward B. Wagner


"Man is created free, and is free, even though born in chains.

[Ger., Der Mensch ist frei geschaffen, ist frei

Und wurd' er in Ketten geboren.]"

-- Johann von Schiller

[Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller]
