And More From H.L. Mencken

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.

From Former Congressman Ron Paul

Freedom means not only that our economic activity ought to be free and voluntary, but that government should stay out of our personal affairs as well. In fact, freedom and personal liberty are not divisible. How do you plan to exercise your right to free speech if you are not allowed the economic freedom to acquire the supplies necessary to disseminate your views? Likewise, how can we expect to enjoy privacy rights if our property rights are insecure?

From E. F. Schumacher

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius-and a lot of courage-to move in the opposite direction.

From Abraham Lincoln

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose
our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves!

From Jesus

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been wrought in God.

From Dwight D. Eisenhower

If all that Americans want is Security, they can go to Prison. They will have
enough to eat, a bed and a roof over their heads. But if an American wants to Preserve His Dignity and His Equality as a Human Being, He Must Not
Bow His Neck To Any Dictatorial Government.

From Aldous Huxley

The purpose of propaganda is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human beings.

From Buddha

The Lie tastes sweet at the beginning, but bitter at the end. The Truth tastes bitter at the beginning, but sweet at the end.

From John F. Kennedy

The very word "Secrecy" is repugnant in a Free and Open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.

More From H. L. Menchen

The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who loves his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.

More From Friedrich Nietzsche

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.

From George Orwell, 1984

"The Two Aims Of The Party Are To Conquer The Whole Surface Of The
Earth And To Extinguish Once And For All The Possibility Of Independent Thought."

From Laurence M. Vance

Libertarianism embraces financial freedom. Instead of the government confiscating a portion of everyones income and redistributing it in the form of grants and welfare, paying the bloated salaries of government bureaucrats, maintaining an empire of troops and bases, and spending billions on numerous boondoggles and pork barrel projects, Americans keep the fruits of their labors and save, spend, or support charitable causes as they deem best.
