One of my favorite politicians and one of the most quotable. Oh how they laughed when an actor ran for President…..
I don’t believe in a government that protects us from ourselves.
Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving subsidize it.
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, ore we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
