QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A monarchy is a merchantman which sails well, but
will sometimes strike on a rock, and go to the bottom; a republic is a
raft which will never sink, but then your feet are always in the water.
--Fisher Ames (1758-1808
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of
human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. --William Pitt, 1783
"...That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed." - Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence, 1776
You have no longer any cause to fear dangers from abroad ... It
is from within, among yourselves - from cupidity, from corruption, from
disappointed ambition and inordinate thirst for power - that factions
will be formed and liberty endangered ..." - Andrew Jackson
"It is not the function of the government to keep the citizens from
falling into error, it is the function of the citizen to keep the
government from falling into error." - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson
"Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the
beneficiaries are spared the shame and danger that their acts would
otherwise involve... But how is this legal plunder to be identified?
Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to
them and gives it to the other persons to whom it doesn't belong. See
if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what
the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then abolish
that law without delay...No legal plunder; this is the principle of
justice, peace, order, stability, harmony and logic." - Frederic
Bastiat, The Law,1850.
The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws. --Tacitus (A,D. 55?-130?)
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing."
- Edmund Burke
"If you don't Stand for Something, you will fall for anything" - Unkown
"No Other success can compensate for failure in the home" David O' McKay
"The power to tax involves the power to destroy." - Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall, 1819.
...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!
--Patric Henry, 1776
Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson emphasized in West Virginia State
Board of Education vs. Barnette -- that: "One's right to life, liberty
and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and
assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote;
they depend on the outcome of no election." Nat Hentoff, Column, Sept.
Individual freedom is the cornerstone of our American heritage.
This basic freedom is under attack from a number of its own
beneficiaries. The liberal press, elected officials, the United Nations
and others are furthering an agenda which has as its objective the
elimination of individual rights. Our nation has been through this once
before, in 1776.
