The importance of refusing to be afraid

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said that the Supreme Court decision affirming that the rule of habeas corpus applies to all people, not just U.S. citizens, could lead to the nuclear destruction of a U.S. city. No, really. Read it and/or see it here.

It's amazing that even those who supposedly champion the principles upon which the U.S. of A. was founded are willing to scare people into surrendering those principles. Anytime one of these fear mongers sends a chill through your heart, take a deep breath, step back and examine what the speaker's agenda is. Gingrich favors waging war in the name of a U.S. police state, and such tyrannies are only possible when the populace fears an outside force more than it fears the loss of liberty.
