Right/Left debate

Reader comment on item: The Paterson 'Protocols'

It is only in the United States, the freest country to date on this earth, that an attempt was made by the Founding Fathers to ensure the rights of an individual over any group larger, by giving us the Constitution.

Long may she reign.
