LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): You're losing your freedom. Your freedom is gone if you can't travel, you can't go see a show, you can't you know go to a restaurant, you can't go to church, can't go to school. At some point you have to ask yourself, what is life? 

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON (GUEST): We went through the Civil War and lost 600,000 deaths. We went through World War II and lost 400,000. FDR is not praised because he put Japanese Americans in the camp and suspended the Constitution. Lincoln is still criticized for suspending habeas corpus. Woodrow Wilson is a progressive icon but progressives don't sound so glad that he suspended the First Amendment during World War I. Every president that tampers with the Constitution, or his legacy, regrets it.
