Edward Abbey
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

Lord Acton
Liberty is the prevention of control by others. This requires self-control and, therefore, religious and spiritual influences; education, knowledge, well-being.

It is easier to find people fit to govern themselves than people to govern others. man is the best, the most responsible, judge of his own advantage.

Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.

It is bad to be oppressed by a minority, but it is worse to be oppressed by a majority. For there is a reserve of latent power in the masses which, if it is called into play, the minority can seldom resist. But from the absolute will of an entire people there is no appeal, no redemption, no refuge but treason.

Brock Adams, Director UN Health Organization
To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.

John Adams
Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.

The foundation of national morality must be laid in private families. ... How is it possible that Children can have any just Sense of the sacred Obligations of Morality or Religion if, from their earliest Infancy, they learn their Mothers live in habitual Infidelity to their fathers, and their fathers in as constant Infidelity to their Mothers?

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.

But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.

Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.

The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.

John Quincy Adams
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.

Posterity--you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it....

Samuel Adams
A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.

It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men.

George H Allen
Today the primary threat to the liberties of the American people comes not from communism, foreign tyrants or dictators. It comes from the tendency on our own shores to centralize power, to trust bureaucracies rather than people.

The basis of a democratic state is liberty.

Richard Armour
Politics, it seems to me, for years, or all too long, has been concerned with right or left instead of right or wrong.

Marcus Aurelius
Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.

Saint Augustine
Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.

Chuck Baldwin
Voting for the lesser of two evils is still evil.

Frederic Bastiat
The safest way to make laws respected is to make them respectable. When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law. These two evils are of equal consequence, and it would be difficult for a person to choose between them.

When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.

Justice Louis Brandeis
Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent... the greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

Harry Browne
The government is good at one thing... it knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say 'see, if it weren't for the government you wouldn't be able to walk.

William F Buckley
Liberals do a great deal of talking about hearing other points of view, but it sometimes shocks them to learn that there are other points of view.

I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.

John Bunyan
If my life is fruitless, it does not matter who praises me, and if my life is fruitful, it does not matter who criticizes me.

Edmund Burke
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Hypocrisy can afford to be magnificent in its promises; for never intending to go beyond promises; it costs nothing.

There is no safety for honest men but by believing all possible evil of evil men.

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.

People crushed by law, have no hopes but from power. If laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to laws; and those who have much to hope and nothing to lose, will always be dangerous."

The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.

George W Bush
If America shows weakness and uncertainty, the world will drift toward tragedy. That will not happen on my watch.

George Carlin
Bipartisan usually means that a larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.

Al Capone
They (elites) are quite good at hypocrisy and blissfully shameless about it, too. Practice makes perfect, after all…

M. Cervantes
God bears with the wicked, but not forever.

Oswald Chambers
Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.

G K Chesterton
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.

We do not want, as the newspapers say, a church that will move with the world. We want a church that will move the world.

Winston Churchill
It is no use saying, 'We are doing our best.' You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.

We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Never give up. Never give in. Never! Never! Never!

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

Ward Cleaver
When you make a mistake…Admit it If you don’t…you only make matters worse.

Calvin Coolidge
The wise and correct course to follow in taxation and other economic legislation is not to destroy those who have secured success but to create conditions under which everyone will have a better chance to be successful.

I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. That is the chief meaning of freedom. Until we can re-establish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very distinct curtailment of our liberty.

I do not want to see any of the people cringing supplicants for the favor of the Government, when they should all be independent masters of their own destiny.

Steven Decatur
Our country! In her intercourse with foreign nations, may she always be in the right; but our country, right or wrong!

Etienne De La Boetie
The fundamental political question is why do people obey a government. The answer is that they tend to enslave themselves, to let themselves be governed by tyrants. Freedom from servitude comes not from violent action, but from the refusal to serve. Tyrants fall when the people withdraw their support.

Everett Dirksen
A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking about real money.

During a political campaign everyone is concerned with what a candidate will do on this or that question if he is elected except the candidate; he's too busy wondering what he'll do if he isn't elected.

When a member of the House moves over to the Senate, he raises the IQ of both bodies.

When all is said and done, the real citadel of strength of any community is in the hearts and minds and desires of those who dwell there.

Benjamin Disraeli
Never take anything for granted.

Youth is a blunder; Manhood a struggle; Old Age a regret.

Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.

Frederick Douglass
Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

William O. Douglas
As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air however slight lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.

Will Durant
If you want a Big Brother, you get all that comes with it.

It may be true . . . that you can’t fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country.

Albert Einstein
Never do anything against conscience even if the State demands it.

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.

Dwight D Eisenhower
There is nothing wrong with America that faith, love of freedom,intelligence and energy of her citizens cannot cure.

Jim Elliott
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm- but the harm does not interest them or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.

Rahm Emanuel
You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.

Juan Enriquez
A tax cut isn't a tax cut unless we pay less AND our children owe less.

John Farnam
If you are unwilling to defend even your own lives, then you are like mice trying to 'negotiate' with owls. You regard their ways as 'wrong', they regard you as dinner.

Millard Fillmore
It is not strange... to mistake change for progress.

Footloose, the musical
Once you climb the mountain, you can't back down.

Henry Ford
Whether you think you can or can't, your right.

David Foster
We remember when an acorn was just a nut, and not a collection of nuts.

Benjamin Franklin
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Procrastination is the thief of time.

Where Liberty dwells, there is my country.

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.

A republic if you can keep it.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!

Milton Friedman
If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand.

Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

What kind of society isn't structured on greed? The problem of social organization is how to set up an arrangement under which greed will do the least harm; capitalism is that kind of a system.

History suggests that capitalism is a necessary condition for political freedom.

John Galt
I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

Mahatma Gandhi
First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.

Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.

Joseph Goebbels
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

The greater the lie, the greater the chance that it will be believed.

Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.

Barry M Goldwater
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.

A government that is big enough to give you something is big enough to take it all away.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden.

Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.

I have little interest in streamlining government or making it more efficient for I mean to reduce its size.

Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed.

Horace Greeley
It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.

Alexander Hamilton
No man in his senses can hesitate in choosing to be free, rather than a slave.

The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased.

William Henry Harrison
The prudent capitalist will never adventure his capital... if there exists a state of uncertainty as to whether the Government will repeal tomorrow what it has enacted today.

Friedrich A. Hayek
Coercion occurs when one man's actions are made to serve another man's will, not for his own but for the other's purpose.

Robert Heinlein
There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.

Patrick Henry
It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.

It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! - I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?

Fear is the passion of slaves.

The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.

The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun.

Adolph Hitler
How fortunate for leaders that men do not think.

Abbie Hoffman
Respect for Authority will be the downfall of Democracy.

Oliver Wendall Holmes
Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out.

Controversy equalizes fools and wise men - and the fools know it.

Insanity is often the logic of an accurate mind overtasked.

Sidney Hook
I was guilty of judging capitalism by its operations and socialism by its hopes and aspirations; capitalism by its works and socialism by its literature.

Adolph Hitler
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.

Milan Hubl, Czech historian
The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history, Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster.

Judge Robert H. Jackson
It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error.

David Hume
It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once.

Aldous Huxley
The propagandist's purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.

Stonewall Jackson
You may be whatever You resolve to be.

Thomas Jefferson
The care of human life and happiness, not their destruction, is the legitimate responsibility of a good government.

Were we directed from Washington when to sow, and when to reap, we should soon want bread.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. (quoting Cesare Beccaria)

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.

I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.

That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them [the banks], will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

Those who hammer their guns into plows, will plow for those who do not.

There is nothing more unequal than the equal treatment of unequal people.

On the altar of God, I swear eternal hostility against all forms of tyranny over the mind of man.

One single object ... [will merit] the endless gratitude of the society: that of restraining the judges from usurping legislation.

The care of human life and happiness, not their destruction, is the legitimate responsibility of a good government

Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.

That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add "within the limits of the law," because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure.

When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.

What county can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that its people preserve the spirit of resistance.

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.

Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

No nation has ever existed or been governed without religion. Nor can be. The Christian religion is the best religion that has been given to man and I, as Chief Magistrate of this nation, am bound to give it the sanction of my example.

Jesus Christ
Occupy until I return.

If you love Me, you will obey My commands.

Justice Anthony Kennedy
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech.

John F Kennedy
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

A Man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A Man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A Man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true, so we're going to stand up right here.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.

Our nettlesome task is to discover how to organize our strength into compelling power.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Robert E Lee
The march of Providence is so slow, and our desires so impatient; the work of progress is so immense and our means of aiding it so feeble; the life of humanity is so long, that of the individual so brief, that we often see only the ebb of the advancing wave and are thus discouraged. It is history that teaches us to hope.

Curtis LeMay

V.I. Lenin
Socialism in America will come through the ballot box.

The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.

C.S. Lewis
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; If you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair

Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.

In the moral sphere, every act of justice or charity involves putting ourselves in the other person's place and thus transcending our own competitive particularity.

Sinclair Lewis
It can’t happen here

Rush Limbaugh
Compassion is defined not by how many people are on the government dole but by how many people no longer need government assistance.

The world's biggest problem is the unequal distribution of capitalism. If there were capitalism everywhere, you wouldn't have food shortages.

Abraham Lincoln
It is better to have tried and failed then never to have tried at all!

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich, you cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong, you cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down, you cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

Republicans are for both the man and the dollar, but in case of conflict the man before the dollar.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.

To stand in silence when they should be protesting makes cowards out of men.

Let us readopt the Declaration of Independence, and with it the practices and policy which harmonize with it.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed it ourselves.

As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy.

"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.

The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.

Martin Luther
If I profess with the loudest and clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of God, except that little point, which the world and the devil are, at that moment, attacking. I am not confessing Christ. However, boldly, I may be professing him. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved.

James Madison
Resistance to tyranny is service to God.

If tyranny and oppression come to this land it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

The Executive has not right, in any case, to decide the question whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.

History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.

John Marshall
The power to tax is the power to destroy.

A legislative act contrary to the Constitution is not law.

George Mason
No method of procedure has ever been devised by which liberty could be divorced from local self-government. No plan of centralization has ever been adopted which did not result in bureaucracy, tyranny, inflexibility, reaction and decline.

John C Maxwell
Everything rises and falls leadership.

H.L. Mencken
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable.

Zell Miller
Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier. And, our soldiers don't just give freedom abroad, they preserve it for us here at home. For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom he abuses to burn that flag.

Today, we're spending like we're Paris Hilton, regulating like we're Ralph Nader, nationalizing like we're Hugo Chavez, printing money like we're the Weimar Republic and taxing like we're, well, the Democratic Congress.

Edward R Murrow
A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano
In the long history of the world, very few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its maximum hour of danger. This is that moment and you are that generation! Now is the time to defend our freedoms...

In the long history of the world, very few generations have been granted the role of defending Freedom in its maximum hour of danger. This is that moment and you are that generation.

P J O'Rourke
The idea of a news broadcaster once was to find someone with information and broadcast it. The idea now is to find someone with ignorance and spread it around.

Government does not cause affluence. Citizens of totalitarian countries have plenty of government and nothing of anything else.

George Orwell
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

It is almost universally felt that when we call a country democratic we are praising it; consequently, the defenders of every kind of regime claim that it is a democracy, and fear that they might have to stop using the word if it were tied down to any one meaning.

Thomas Paine
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it.

Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it.

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.

Ron Paul
Truth is treason in the empire of lies.

I accept the definition of patriotism as that effort to resist oppressive state power.

The message is clear, if we lose our love of liberty and our manners become corrupt, character is lost and so is the Republic.

A casual acceptance of the principle behind high taxation, with an income tax and an inheritance tax, is incompatible with a principled belief in a true Republic.

Saint Paul

William Penn
Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.

Proverbs 29:18
Where there is no vision, the people perish.

Psalms 91:1–2
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.

Ayn Rand
Civilization is the progress toward society of privacy...civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals -- that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government -- that it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the government.
