In the Next Hundred Days, I will meet with a Leader who Rules Over

Crush All who would Challenge his Authority in the ballot box, President

From Revisionism By Jeff Riggenbach

The Facts about the Gross Violations of Individual Liberty that have been
Championed by U.S. Presidents almost since the beginning, For Example:
John Adams for the Sedition Acts, Andrew Jackson for the Genocidal
Treatment of the American Indians, Abraham Lincoln for the Military
Conscription -to say nothing of his Suspension of Habeas Corpus and his
Imprisonment of Newspaper Editors who had Dared to Disagree with his
Prosecution of the Civil War, William McKinley for the Brutal Suppression
of the Independence Movement in the Philippines after the Spanish American
War, Franklin Roosevelt for the order to round up American Citizens of
Japanese Ancestry and Imprison them in Concentration Camps. Are Any Of
These Inconvenient Facts Likely To Be Selected For Inclusion In Any
Textbook Based Upon That Most Commonly Shared Principle And Magnificent
Illusion Of The Touted Saintliness Of The United States Government?

From Jackson D. Pemperton

From Ted Nugent

To My Mind It Is Wholly Irresponsible To Go Into the World Incapable Of
Preventing Violence, Injury, Crime, and Death. How Feeble Is The Mindset
To Accept Defenselessness. How Unnatural. How Cheap. How Cowardly.
How Utterly Pathetic Is That State Of Affairs?

From M. A. Bakunin

I Am Free Only So Far As I Am Able To Recognize The Humanity And Respect

From James Mussatti

Our most Formidable Fortress of Defense in These Times of Stress Still
Remains the Constitution of These United States. But it is only as good
as our understanding and defense of the purpose for which it was drafted.
Eternal Vigilance and Personal Responsibility are Still the Price of
Our Human Liberty.

More from Samuel Adams

If Ever A Time Should Come, When Vain And Aspiring Men Shall Possess The
Highest Seats In Government, Our Beloved Country Will Stand In Need Of
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.
