Justice Louis D. Brandeis

I guess our government officials, federal, state, and local, didn’t read this quote from Justice Brandels before they declared themselves America’s aristocracy and crowded up to the trough for far more than their share, before they created retirement programs which would put the rest of us, we poor unwashed, in the poor house.

“At the foundation of our civil liberties lies
 the principle that denies to government officials 
an exceptional position before the law and which
 subjects them to the same rules of conduct
 that are commands to the citizen.”

– Justice Louis D. Brandeis
(1856-1941) US Supreme Court Justice
