From William Morley Punshon

Cowardice Asks, Is It Safe? Expediency Asks, Is It Politic? Vanity
Asks, Is It Popular? But Conscience Asks, Is It Right?

From John T. Flynn

Fascism will come at the hands of perfectly authentic Americans who have
been working to commit this country to the rule of the bureaucratic
state; interfering in the affairs of the states and cities; taking part
in the management of industry and finance and agriculture; assuming the
role of great national banker and investor, borrowing billions every
year and spending them on all sorts of projects through which such a
government can paralyze opposition and command public support; marshaling
Great Armies and Navies At Crushing Costs To Support The Industry Of War
And Preparation For War Which Will Become Our Nations Greatest Industry;
And Adding To All This The Most Romantic Adventures In Global Planning,
Regeneration, And Domination, All To Be Done Under The Authority Of A
Powerfully Centralized Government In Which The Executive Will Hold In
Effect All The Powers, With Congress Reduced To The Mere Role Of A
Debating Society.

From Paul Craig Roberts

Americans Are The Most Gullible People Who Ever Existed. They Tend To
Support The Government Instead Of The Constitution, And Almost Every
Republican And Conservative Regards Civil Liberty As A Coddling Device
That Encourages Criminals And Terrorists.

More Wisdom From H.L. Mencken

Under Democracy One Party Always Devotes Its Chief Energies To Trying
To Prove That The Other Party Is Unfit To Rule ----
And Both Commonly Succeed, And Are Quite Right!

More Wisdom From Lord Acton

By Liberty I Mean The Assurance That Every Man Shall Be Protected In

More From Walter Lippmann

Life Is Infinitely Less Important Than Freedom. A Free Man Has A Value
To Himself And Perhaps To His Time; A Ward Of The State Is Useless To
Himself - Useful Only As So Many Foot-Pounds Of Energy Serving Those
Who Manage To Set Themselves Above Him.

From Texas Congressman Ron Paul

Political Demagoguery Rules When Truth And Liberty Are Ignored.
We Are Supposed To Believe That Abusing Our Liberties Here At Home
And Pursuing Unconstitutional Wars Overseas Will Solve Our Problems.

From Walter Lippmann

We must remember that in time of war what is said on the enemys side of
the front is always propaganda and what is said on our side of the front
is truth and righteousness, the cause of humanity and a crusade for peace.
Is It really Necessary For Us, At The Height Of Our Power, To Stoop To
Such Self-Deceiving Nonsense??

From General Smedley D. Butler

I Spent 33 Years In The Marines. Most Of My Time Being A High-Class Muscle Man
For Big Business, For Wall Street And The Bankers.
In Short I Was A Racketeer For Capitalism!!!
