Justice for all, not fairness for all, is what our Constitution seeks

Some men have a mistaken notion of justice and wish to substitute for justice their particular vision of fairness.

Justice is blind, and fairness cannot be measured but differently by each man and in each case. In America, we hold forth the promise of justice for all, not fairness for which there is no common standard.

Attempts by politicians to bring forth from government fairness rather than justice has tended, as we witness, to dispirit public virtue and promote the growth of public evils. This has been found true in everything from our exercise of law and the courts to the injustices perpetrated upon the American people—both high and low—through the various forms of public and corporate welfare.

Stop the madness!
