J.T. YOUNG — The left is aghast at today's Tea Party movement. How could Americans of any stripe be so appalled at the exercise of the constitutional right to speak out against big, intrusive - yet unresponsive - government? Our Founders would no doubt be amused at the irony... (more)

WALTER E. WILLIAMS — My sentiments on immigration are expressed by the welcoming words of poet Emma Lazarus' that grace the base of our Statue of Liberty: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

JOHN STOSSEL — In America, we're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. Life, liberty and property can't be taken from you unless you're convicted of a crime.
