Quote(s) of the Day

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. 

It is incumbent on every 
generation to pay its own debts as it goes. 
A principle which if acted on would save 
one-half the wars of the world. 

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 

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. 

The tree of liberty must be 
refreshed from time to time with the blood of 
patriots and tyrants. 

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