    "Every collectivist revolution rides in on a Trojan horse of 'emergency'. It was the tactic of Lenin, Hitler, and Mussolini. In the collectivist sweep over a dozen minor countries of Europe, it was the cry of men striving to get on horseback. And 'emergency' became the justification of the subsequent steps. This technique of creating emergency is the greatest achievement that demagoguery attains." -Herbert Hoover

    Letters and Writings of Samuel Adams ^ | 12/9/1771 | Samuel Adams
    "If the liberties of America are ever compleatly ruined, of which in my opinion there is now the utmost danger, it will in all probability be the consequence of a mistaken notion of prudence, which leads men to acquiesce in measures of the most destructive tendency for the sake of present ease. When designs are form'd to rase the very foundation of a free government, those few who are to erect their grandeur and fortunes upon the general ruin, will employ every art to sooth the devoted people into a state of indolence, inattention and security, which is forever the...

    Found this quote from James Madison while studying about the Nullification cricis: "And in the event of a failure of every Constitutional resort, and an accumuliation of usurpations and abuses rendering passive obedience and non-resistance a greater evil than resistance and REVOLUTION, there can remain but one last resort, the last of all:an apeal from the cancled obligations of the Constiutional compact, to the orginal rights and the law of self preservation. This is the ultima ratio of all governments whether consolidated, confederated, or a compound of both;and it can not be douted that a single member of the Union,...

    First Things ^ | David Goldman
    Of many strange moments in President Obama’s Cairo speech, perhaps the strangest is the conclusion: The Holy Quran tells us, Mankind, we have created you male and a female. And we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another. The Talmud tells us, The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace. The Holy Bible tells us, Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. What does the idea of gender and tribe distinction have to do with peace? The answer is nothing, except that Obama’s speechwriters...

    Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, joins the ranks of several Republicans, including Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh, who are criticizing Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s quote on ethnicity and judgment. On today's “Washington Unplugged” with host Bob Schieffer, Cheney said she found the quote “troubling.” In yet another, Schieffer – Cheney interview, the mother of five said, “if you switched around the designations in the quote, you know somebody's career would over.” The Sotomayor quote in question came from a 2001 speech where the court nominee said, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with...

    WASHINGTON - The Pentagon said Monday it no longer includes a Bible quote on the cover page of daily intelligence briefings it sends to the White House as was practice during the Bush administration. Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said he did not know how long the Worldwide Intelligence Update cover sheets quoted from the Bible. Air Force Maj. Gen. Glen Shaffer, who was responsible for including them, retired in August 2003, according to his biography. For a period in 2003, at least, the daily reports prepared for President George W. Bush carried quotes from the books of Psalms and Ephesians...

    Politico ^ | 5-19-09 | Ben Smith
    An aide to former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Keith Urbahn, e-mails to contest a widely discussed GQ article by Robert Draper, which suggested that Rumsfeld "appreciated" the practice of quoting Biblical quotations on the cover sheets of classified briefings, and that Rumsfeld brought the briefings to President Bush. Urbahn e-mails that the briefings in question were not routinely sent to Rumsfeld, and that Rumsfeld considers the cover slides "harmful and counterproductive to the war effort." Urbahn's full e-mail: The slides in the “World Intelligence Update” were prepared on a daily basis by military personnel serving on the Joint Staff, which...

    Donald Rumsfeld covered Iraq briefing papers with Biblical texts According to a report in GQ magazine the religious texts were imposed over pictures of the US armed forces engaged in the war. Shown to only a small circle of senior advisers, the pages were first used on the eve of the 2003 invasion and were designed to provide support and encouragement to Mr Bush, a Christian who often cited the Bible while in office. Some Pentagon officials feared that if the documents were leaked at the height of the conflict, the use of Christian language to justify the invasion of...
