"In a free society we're supposed to know the truth," said Republican Congressman Ron Paul to Fox Business host Judge Napolitano on Thursday about recent revelations at the Federal Reserve. "In a society where truth becomes treason, then we're in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it."

He's not the only one, it seems: according to The Raw Story website, Jack Hunter argues in a recent essay in the The American Conservative magazine that fellow conservatives should consider supporting WikiLeaks. Hunter believes that limiting and challenging government power was the founders' intent and "these have always been core conservative principles."
