Hooray for Judge Napalitano

Last Friday on Glen Beck's 9/12 Project TV program, Judge Andrew Napalitano uttered one of the most quotable quotes I have ever heard:

"When the people fear the government, that is tyranny. When the government fears the people, that's liberty."

He attributed this quote to Thomas Jefferson. Well said, Tom.

Today, 5/6/09, Glenn did a very good follow-up interview with Judge Naplitano on Glen's daily radio program. The judge discusses a constitutional convention to repeal the 16th amendment which concerns the income tax, and the concept of nullification. I had never heard of the concept and was fascinated to find out how certain states are using it. He also summarized the Dread Scott Decision, which is also the subject of the Judge's new book.

You can find a text transcript or hear the audio here. The audio runs about 14 minutes, and if you are a fast reader, you could read it somewhat faster.
