True justice depends on true liberty

Liberty means the security given to each man that … he shall dispose of the produce exclusively as he chooses. It is impossible to know whence any definition or criterion of justice can be derived, if it is not deduced from this view of things; or if it is not the definition of justice that each shall enjoy the fruit of his own labor and self-denial.

True equality

Equality before the law … leaves each man to run the race of life for himself as best he can. The state stands neutral but benevolent. It does not undertake to aid some and handicap others … the servant of envy. I am entitled to make the most I can of myself without hindrance from anybody, but I am not entitled to any guarantee that I shall make as much of myself as somebody else makes of himself.

Freedom vs. responsibility

To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief from the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility.

Mass immigration means giving up our rights and freedoms

Not only have our post-1965 immigration policies increased America’s welfare, criminal, and terrorism caseloads, but now all Americans are being asked to give up their civil liberties to fulfill Teddy Kennedy’s dream of bringing the entire Third World to live here in America. […] The National Security Act of 1947, creating the CIA, expressly prohibited the agency from engaging in domestic operations. But now we have to spy on ‘Americans’ because of all the al-Awlakis, Tsarnaevs, and Zazis. We have created two huge problems where none existed before — domestic terrorism and government spying — all so the Democrats can win elections and Mark Zuckerberg can underpay his employees.
