JAMES MADISON QUOTE - 1822

"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

JACKSON COUNTY COMMISSION MEETS AND CONDUCTS SECRET DELIBERATIONS IN EXECUTIVE SESSION FOR ONE HOUR WITH THE RIGHT WING LIBERTY INSTITUTE ATTORNEYS, THE ISSUE - THE TEN COMMANDMENTS DISPLAY.
September 2, 2014 - Scottsboro, Alabama:  Today's county commission work session was a long one. 17 items on the Agenda with #17 added, an Executive Session to discuss pending or threatened litigation. There is no pending litigation, there have been letters requesting the commission to not display the Ten Commandments. WHY THE SECRECY?

The commissioners, the county attorney, and the two attorneys from the right wing religious Liberty Institute were in the executive session for 1 hour deliberating the TEN COMMANDMENTS public display issue in secret.

About the Liberty Institute - quote: "Our nation was founded on the premise that rights come from God... Liberty Institute’s mission is to defend and restore religious liberty across America—in our schools, for our churches, inside the military, and throughout the public arena... freedom does not mean confining religious expression to church or home, but that true religious liberty consists of recognizing individuals’ God-given right to follow their conscience and to live and act according to their faith in every area of life.    https://www.libertyinstitute.org/about
Following the Liberty Institutes reasoning - DOES THIS MEAN RELIGIOUS FANATICS HAVE A RIGHT TO KILL AMERICANS IF THEY ARE FOLLOWING THEIR CONSCIOUS?? WHOSE RIGHTS ARE BEING PROTECTED, THE CITIZENRY OR GLORY SEEKING RIGHT WING  POLITICIANS AND THEIR EXTREMIST ATTORNEYS?? 

Commissioner Tim Guffey says: "What I'm trying to do is erect a monument of historical documents," Guffey said Thursday in an interview with AL.com. "It's the Constitution, the Ten Commandments and the Declaration of Independence. I feel like that's what this country was founded on. These documents helped America become the greatest country in history...I'm using it in the context of this is historical. I'm not doing it to push religion at all."  http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2014/08/jackson_county_commissioner_wa.html

I do not believe any of Guffey's statements for one second about the Ten Commandments issue. This is not about history, or for that matter, religion or responsible speech, this is about deceit and right wing extremism of power hungry politicians attempting to politicize religious freedom for the express purpose of furthering their personal political goals of power and glory.
