“[T]he case for liberty must be made daily, grounded in its core values and principles, across every issue. When compromises are made on an ‘exceptional’ basis, our liberties are compromised — as, for example, Benjamin Franklin warned: ‘Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.’”

— David J. Theroux, founder and president of the Independent Institute.
