Daily Quote 3.1.15

Daily Quote 2.27.15

Charles Carroll

Daily Quote 2.26.15

Mark Twain

 

 

 

” My kind of loyalty was to one’s country, not to its institutions or its officeholders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death.”

Daily Quote 2.24.15

” War is the health of the State.

Daily Quote 2.18.15

John Locke

” Fidelity to the public requires that the laws be as plain and explicit as possible, that the less knowing may understand, and not be ensnared by them, while the artful evade their force.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Quote 2.15.15

James Fenimore Cooper

 

 

 

” It is a besetting vice of democracies to substitute public opinion for law. This is the usual form in which masses of men exhibit their tyranny. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Quote 2.14.15

John F Kennedy

 

 

 

 

” Every time that we try to lift a problem from our own shoulders, and shift that problem to the hands of the government, to the same extent we are sacrificing the liberties of our people.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Quote 2.13.15

George Will

 

 

 

” The primary goal of collectivism — of socialism in Europe and contemporary liberalism in America — is to enlarge governmental supervision of individuals’ lives. This is done in the name of equality.   People are to be conscripted into one large cohort, everyone equal (although not equal in status or power to the governing class) in their status as wards of a self-aggrandizing government.”

Daily Quote 2.11.15

James A Dorn

 

 

” Welfare rights are pseudo-rights: They rely on the force of law to take private property for the use of others without compensation and without consent. Public charity is forced charity; it is not a virtue but a vice.”

Daily Quote 2.8.15

Justice Louis D Brandeis

 

 

 

” Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen… If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Quote 2.7.15

Stephen T. Byington
