Bureaucratic habits of secrecy aren't going to help the situation. (Quote by - Herbert Bix)

There is no doubt that constitutional freedoms will never be abolished in one fell swoop, for the American people cherish their freedoms, and would not tolerate such a loss if they could perceive it.

(Quote by - Robert Byrd)

This is not a matter of red versus blue. Conservatives desire a government that does not exceed its legitimate authority. Liberals desire a government that is accountable and responsive to the needs of the public. But secrecy thwarts both of those desires. (Quote by - James Neff)

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. (Quote by - James Madisom)

When the state constitution grants each citizen an inalienable right to privacy, i s talking about individuals seeking safety from an overreaching government, not an elected official trying to evade the oversight of constituents. I s the difference between seeking protection from tyranny and seeking protection from democracy. (Quote by - Jon Mendelson)

The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today. (Quote by - Paul Hellyer)

In love we are not only liable to betray ourselves, but also the secrets of others. (Quote by - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn)
