Quote of the Day

"If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein."

- Justice Jackson, in the majority opinion in West Virginia v. Barnette.

Jackson wrote these words in 1943. Apply them to your local and state government. Do they still ring true?
