Its Experienced Patriots To Prevent Its Ruin.

From A.W. Stewart

The Percentage of Correct Decisions Which Individuals Make Is Very High
When They Are Risking Their Own Money And Their Own Future. However,The
Percentage of Correct Decisions Is Very Low When Made By Politicians,
so-called Intellectuals, and Others, Regardless of Their Intelligence,
Who Are Not Faced With The Discipline Of Having To Pay For Their Own
Mistakes With Their Own Earnings.

Their Identity and Soul. It is More Evil Than Murder.

From Sheldon Richman

I am biased against government, specifically the people who make and carry
out its policies. It is to them that I look first for the cause of social

From Clarence B. Carson

Men live their lives within a framework of customary relations and
patterns for achieving their ends and solving their problems. In the
absence of positive force, they have worked out and accepted these
patterns voluntarily, or they submit to them willingly. Any alteration
of these by government involves the Use or Threat of Force, for that is
How Governments Operate. The old order must be replaced by a new order
for the reform to be achieved. The Result of the Forceful Effort To Do
This Is DISORDER.

Still More From Ayn Rand

Any Alleged RIGHT of one man, which necessitates the Violation of the
Rights of Another Man, Is Not and Cannot Be a Right.

From Alexis de Tocqueville

What good does it do me, after all, if an ever-watchful authority keeps
an eye out to ensure that my pleasures will be tranquil and races ahead
of me to ward off all danger, sparing me the need even to think about
such things, if that authority, even as it removes the smallest thorns
from my path, is also Absolute Master of My Liberty and My Life; if it
Monopolizes Vitality and Existence to Such a Degree that when IT
Languishes, Everything Else must also Sleep; and when IT DIES,
Everything Else Must Also Perish?
