|| Just a few of my favorites...
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." --George Washington
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." --Benjamin Franklin
"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." --Abraham Lincoln
"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." --James Madison
"Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business... frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite." --Ronald Wilson Reagan
"Liberty is not bestowed by man. It is a gift from God to every man." --George W. Bush
