Freedom Must Not Be Taken For Granted

From The Founders, Religion and Government:

"On the whole, the resolutions contain two great principles: to control trade by law, instead of leaving it to the better management of the merchants; and the principle of sumptuary law. To play the tyrant in the counting house, and in directing the private expenses of our citizens, are employments equally unworthy of discussion."
~ Fisher Ames, Speech in Congress on Resolutions Proposed by James Madison (January 27, 1794)

Time does not change truth.
