No freeloaders

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it - Thomas Paine

Eisenhower total security

"If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking is freedom." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Samuel Adams - twisted words

How strangely will the tools of a tyrant pervert the plain meaning of words - Samuel Adams

Samuel Adams - liberty

If we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom - Samuel Adams

Benjamin Franklin on poverty

"The best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it" - Benjamin Franklin

What would Madison think of Obamacare?

It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?

James Madison, Federalist #62
