"Power always has to be kept in check; power exercised in secret, especially under the cloak of national security, is doubly dangerous."

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts awesomely. I want absolute power... Opps, I mean I want to help you, the American citizen! I will protect you from all bad things, except me of course. Not that you would need protection from me! No siree Bob, you are fine, trust me.

Senator Proxmire is one of the reasons I am proud to be from Wisconsin. I think Senator Feingold is doing a wonderful job living up to his legacy.
