"Look at what the government does: it takes money from some people, keeps a bunch of it, and gives the rest to other people." --Dave Berry
"If taxation is such a good idea, then why do IRS agents carry guns?" --Stephanie Sailor
"Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program."--Milton Friedman
"The more prohibitions there are the poorer the people will be."--Lao Tzu
"When a business misspends all the money from an employee's retirement fund it's called fraud. When our government does the same thing, it's called Social Security."--Stephanie Sailor
"Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature."--James Garfield
"The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or the next. It was the deep knowledge -- and pray God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest."--Ronaldus Magnus Normandy France, June 6 1984
"A friend of mine was asked to a costume ball a short time ago. He slapped some egg on his face and went as a liberal economist."--Ronaldus Magnus February 11 1988
"Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation to get a government handout for your community? Realize that the doctor's fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can't socialize the doctors without socializing the patients. Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he'll eat you last."--Ronaldus Magnus October 27 1964
"We Americans have set dangerous precedents. We can rest assured that those pushing for gun control have no intention of stopping short of total gun confiscation. At some point, we who cherish liberty must summon the courage of our forefathers and tell America's tyrants, 'Give me liberty, or give me death!' The longer we wait, the greater the ultimate bloodshed." -- Walter E. Williams, Professor of Economics, George Mason University.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American peoples liberty teeth and keystone under independence. From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interferencethey deserve a place of honor with all that's good."--George Washington January 7, 1790
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."--Thomas Jefferson
"Absolutely not. If the people are armed and the federalists do not know where the arms are, there can never be an oppressive government."--George Washinton comments on a proposal for gun registration.
"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."--Thomas Paine, Thoughts On Defensive War 1775
