The rights of persons, and the right of property, are the objects, for the protection of which government was instituted.
The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground.
Those who made and endorsed our Constitution knew man's nature, and it is to their ideas, rather than to the temptations of utopia, that we must ask that our judges adhere.
There are four essential economic freedoms. First is the freedom to work. Second of those freedoms is the freedom to enjoy the fruits of one’s labor. Third is the freedom to own and control one’s property. Fourth is the freedom to participate in a free market—to contract freely for goods and services and to achieve one’s full potential without government limits on opportunity, economic independence, and growth.
Man is not free unless government is limited.
WILL is defending Wisconsin’s children against aggression from Washington.
Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.
Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify.
The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.
Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.
In our Constitution, we the people tell the government what it can do, and it can do only those things listed in that document and no others, because here in America, we the people are in charge.
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
Ingenuity and skill were executed by Attorney Michael Fischer, and Attorney Thomas C. Kamenick championed the cause to VICTORY

Whether publishing reports on how to craft high-quality choice policies or rigorous fiscal analyses that influence the debates in Madison, or even suing the state education bureaucracy for its failure to follow the law, WILL can be counted upon to fight for Wisconsin families.
WILL provides the deep dive into the details that allows me to better deliver our conservative priorities and execute conservative solutions on behalf of our great community.
WILL is a reliable source for thoughtful, conservative analysis and serves a key role in Wisconsin’s public policy debates.

After a lifetime of involvement in America’s conservative movement, I am proud to say that WILL is one of the most successful organizations I’ve been a part of and happy to see it grow and impact public policy.
WILL defends liberty at every turn, for everyone - even when others stop caring. Wisconsin is better, stronger, and freer for their efforts.
The liberty movement has benefitted immensely from state-based litigation centers like WILL. Their lawsuits in defense of economic and personal freedom provide robust models that ought to be followed by organizations in states across the country.
