-- unknown

“The two pillars of 'political correctness' are: a) willful ignorance b) a steadfast refusal to face the truth”

"The government against which our ancestors took up arms was a mild and distant irritant compared to the federal scourge that rules us today. Constitutional restraints on tyranny are to our masters only a hazy memory as they exercise powers beyond the dreams of history's most famous dictators. Louis the XIV never required an annual accounting of every centime every Frenchman earned. He would never have dared then to demand a third of it in yearly tribute. Ivan the Terrible never told Russian merchants whom they could or could not hire, nor, heaven help us, where they could have a smoke."
-- Jared Taylor, Louisville KY

"There is nothing more odious than the majority; for it consists of a few powerful leaders, a certain number of accommodating scoundrels and subservient weaklings, and a mass of men who trudge after them without in the least knowing their own minds."

today, tomorrow, always:
Bad men there are.
Hate you they do.
Kill you they will.
Watch out you better!"

-- Shoshone refrain

"I can appreciate people who are scared of government. We ought to be scared of government."
-- Judge Bowers, Colorado

"Make no mistake about it; Gun control laws increase the power of government and the criminal element over the average citizen, and serve no other purpose. The Branch Davidians hadn't assaulted anyone. They lived peacefully in the community. Except for the federal gun laws, they would all still be alive."
-- The New American, Vol 9, No 12, 14 Jun 1993

"19 April 1993 was the first time since the Spanish Inquisition that people have been burned alive for their religious beliefs."
-- Alec McCol, on the Waco Massacre

"The gang of 60's liberals who control this country have forgotten that it was: A Democrat who started the Vietnam War, a Democrat named Lyndon Johnson who escalated it, the Democratic National Convention that the Chicago Seven marched on, and a Democrat who ordered the protestors beaten by police."
-- Right on the Web

"The bridge to the 21st Century is really several million poor people lying face down in the mud so that Bill Clinton and his liberal cohorts can step on their backs without getting their shoes dirty."
-- Right on the Web

"World War II would have ended in 1944 if Eisenhower had not been pressured by socialists like FDR to punish General Patton for trying to end it early, and Communism would have fallen in Russia in 1945 if FDR would have let General Patton finish the job. "
-- Right on the Web

"Any person who is conservative or libertarian, works hard, strives to succeed against the odds, and generates personal wealth will incur the wrath of liberals who inherited their money."
-- Right on the Web

"Liberalism and socialism are the end results of a complacent people."
-- Right on the Web

"A government can be compared to our lungs. Our lungs are best when we don't realize they are helping us breathe. It is when we are constantly aware of our lungs that we know they have come down with an illness."
-- Lao-Tzu

"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away."
-- Barry Goldwater

"That national leaders continue to address the Prisoner of War and Missing in Action issue as the 'highest national priority' is a travesty. From my vantage point, I observed that the principal government players were interested primarily in conducting a 'damage limitation exercise', and appeared to knowingly and deliberately generate an endless succession of manufactured crises and 'busy work'."
-- Col. Millard A. Peck, Letter of Resignation as Chief of the Special Office of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action, 12 Feb 1991

"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence - it is force! Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action"
-- George Washington

"Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them broken. ... We're after power and we mean it. ... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Rearden, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."
-- Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, 1957

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
-- Daniel Webster

"Judging from Waco and the Randy Weaver incident, the feds are almost 100 times more likely to kill an innocent person than a guilty one."
-- Jack Buchmiller

"Prohibition... goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and make a crime out of things that are not crimes... A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded."
-- Abraham Lincoln, 1840

"Today's liberals wish to disarm us so they can run their evil and oppressive agenda on us. The fight against crime is just a convenient excuse to further their agenda. I don't know about you, but if you hear that Williams' guns have been taken, you'll know Williams is dead."
-- Walter Williams, Professor of Economics, George Mason University

"A nation can survive it's fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But a traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not the traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments. And he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He robs the world of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city. He infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared."
-- Cicero to the Roman Senate, exposing a conspiracy to destroy the Roman Republic

"When government crosses the line from protector of our liberty to master of our lives, it becomes just another criminal gang."
-- Jarret B. Wollstein
