We think it is important for Americans to study and understand our history. In the 1760’s Edmund Burke was a very influential member of England’s Parliament which was the political body that enacted all its laws. He once described the then American colonists by saying ‘More than anything they love their freedom. They guard it jealously and with suspicion.’ A principal reason for America’s revolt and eventual separation from England as noted by Samuel Adams in his correspondence with the committees of the colonies leading up to and during our revolution was Parliament’s position that it had the authority to enact laws for the colonies ‘in all matters whatsoever’. The colonists understood the danger that presented them. Yet even today America finds itself imperiled by foreign shores when giant multinationals bully and commandeer Congress and the courts into enacting laws and setting precedent which weakens America’s ability to protect the rights and property of its citizens, allowing foreign nationals to rob us blind and export our jobs overseas. We think today especially is a good time for Congress, the courts and all Americans to reflect and resolve to reestablish strong property rights for inventors and all Americans that we may restore our economy to its former vibrancy. It is not too late to protect our property from foreign multinationals and ‘guard it jealously and with suspicion’.
