It is precisely in times of national emergencies that civil liberties must be defended and protected most forcefully. If not, then governments will be given incentives to constantly create crises, or perceptions of crises, and declaring “official states of emergency” in order to grab more and more power and money and destroy more and more liberty and prosperity.

    I do not believe this is a quote from the Supreme Court. I believe it is a quote from Thomas DiLorenzo paraphrasing somrtihng the Supreme Court said in Ex Parte Milligan, 1866. See http://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/the-two-magic-words-that-justify-tyranny-and-oppression/ That said, it is a great quote, and something we must keep in mind anytime anyone suggests they need special emergency powers.
