Goodbye 4th Amendment... 

We'll miss you, buddy.

I believe that liberty is the only genuinely valuable thing that men have invented, at least in the field of government, in a thousand years. I believe that it is better to be free than to be not free, even when the former is dangerous and the latter safe. I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air – that progress made under the shadow of the policeman's club is false progress, and of no permanent value. I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave.

- H. L. Mencken

They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.

- Benjamin Franklin

You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free.

-Clarence Darrow

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.

-Edward R. Murrow

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

-Samuel Adams

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

-George Orwell
