"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we
may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
-- George Washington
"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.
We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."
Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul
"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined
by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government
cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional
place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal,
because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has
meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government
security blanket beckons."
-- Congressman Ron Paul

"The government is best which governs least."
