Wisdom From Patrick Henry

It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt
to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that
siren till she transforms us into beasts. For my part, whatever anguish
of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know
the worst, and to provide for it.

George Washington Farewell Address Sept. 7, 1796

Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and
harmony with all. The Nation which indulges toward another habitual
hatred or an habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave
to its animosity or to its aff ection, either of which is sufficient to
lead it astray from its duty and its interest.

War Is At Best Barbarism!! Its Glory Is All Moonshine. It Is Only Those
Who Have Neither Fired A Shot Nor Heard The Shrieks And Groans Of The
Wounded Who Cry Aloud For Blood, More Vengeance, More Desolation.
War Is Hell.

A Thing Moderately Good Is Not So Good As It Ought To Be. Moderation In
Temper Is Always A Virtue, But Moderation In Principle Is Always A Vice.

From Andrew Hamilton

Power may justly be compared to a great river. While kept within its due
bounds it is both beautiful and useful. But when it Overflows its banks,
it is then too impetuous to be stemmed; it bears down all before it, and
brings destruction and desolation wherever it comes. If, then, this is
The Nature Of Power, let us at least do Our duty, and like Wise Men who
Value Freedom use our utmost care to Support Liberty, the only Bulwark
Against Lawless Power, which in all ages has Sacrificed to its wild lust
and boundless ambition the Blood of the Best Men That Ever Lived!!!

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.
