Ron Paul: First They Came For the iPhones …

“Nothing in the Constitution can force an exchange of liberty for security”  – Andrew P. Napolitano

by Ron Paul

The FBI tells us that its demand for a back door into the AppleiPhone 8 is all about fighting terrorism, and that it is essential to break in just this one time to find out more about the San Bernardino attack last December. But the truth is they had long sought a way to break Apple’s iPhone encryption and, like 9/11 and the PATRIOT Act, a mass murder provided just the pretext needed. After all, they say, if we are going to be protected from terrorism we have to give up a little of our privacy and liberty. Never mind that government spying on us has not prevented one terrorist attack.

Apple has so far stood up to a federal government’s demand that it force its employees to write a computer program to break into its own product. No doubt Apple CEO Tim Cook understands the damage it would do to his company for the world to know that the US government has a key to supposedly secure iPhones. But the principles at stake are even higher. We have a fundamental right to privacy.

The Natural Law as a Restraint Against Tyranny: Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

 

“Some men say the earth is flat. 
Some men say the earth is round. 
But if it is flat, could Parliament make it round? 
And if it round, could the kings command flatten it?” – quote from Sir Thomas More’s treason case under Henry VIII

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano:

“Natural Rights can be summarized in four words: the presumption of liberty. This means we are self-directed. We make our own choices.”

 “I do have something to preserve — my dignity and my right to be left alone, the quintessential American right.”

“The right to defend yourself, the right to keep and bear arms does not protect your right to shoot deer. It protects your right to shoot at the government when it is taken over by tyrants”
