    Bill of Rights Day

    I would say what the Bill of Rights means to me is that it’s a check on the government’s ability to exercise power over its own citizens and that has actually made us a very successful government for 200 years in terms of specific things and what means the most to me I think probably it’s the fact that this freedom of the press in this country because what that means is that there’s no state newspaper telling me what I ought to think I’m able to read make my own opinions about things and know about what’s happening from all the different perspectives because almost every newspaper has a…

    Is Money Speech?

    >>EUGENE VOLOKH: Is money speech? Say the government says you can publish a newspaper but only if you spend less than $1,000 or even $1,000,000 to do it.
