Quote of the day: The Constitution, the citizen's protection against the government.

For those of us who do not have a background in law, it is this sort of common-sense statements that open our eyes to what exactly the framers had in mind when creating the constitution. I like this perspective. It's one of those moments--more common as of lately--when I agree with the Liberterian perspective.

Of course, as usual, this comes via Get Liberty News email. Learn more about it at http://www.getliberty.org.
"Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals -- that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government -- that it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the government."
