    Speaking from prison, Iraqi war veteran Andrew "Sarge" Chambers tells the story of how he got there. As the judge told him when he sentenced Chambers to 10 years at Marion Correctional: "Your time in Iraq makes you a threat to society." Chambers reminds us of the sacrifices that linger with soldiers -- and simply asks us to listen.

    Judge, your statist attitudes make a threat to society.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Like, "I will not allow the law in my court room."
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    I had a federal case that hinged on an employment issue. The issue involved which state's law controlled the case ... the state where the employee worked or the state where the injury occurred.

    The judge noted that it was in the state where the employee worked and then, in the same memo, rambled on concerning the law where the injury occurred and based his ruling on the wrong state.

    An old man judge in federal court who was just trying to protect the employee.
