40th President of the United States.
The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I am here to help. Ronald Reagan
The government is not the solution to our problems; the government is the problem.
A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have. Thomas Jefferson
When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. Thomas Jefferson
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government. Thomas Jefferson
Never spend your money before you have it. Thomas Jefferson
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. Sir Winston Churchill
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. Sir Winston Churchill
The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living. Anonymous
Socialism holds nothing but unhappiness for the human race. Socialism has no place in the hearts of those who would secure the fight for freedom and preserve democracy.
Samuel Gompers, American Federation of Labor, 1918
The goal of socialism is communism. Vladimir Lenin
A lie told often enough becomes the truth. Vladimir Lenin
While the State exists, there can be no freedom. When there is freedom there will be no State.
The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
The United States has managed to keep the scourge of socialism that killed over 150 million people from our shores in the 20th century. However, the dark clouds of socialism have been forming over America for decades.
Justice Joseph Story,
from Familiar Explanation of the Constitution (1840)
The next amendment is, "A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offence to keep arms, and by substituting a regular army in the stead of a resort to the militia.
The friends of a free government cannot be too watchful, to overcome the dangerous tendency of the public mind to sacrifice, for the sake of mere private convenience, this powerful check upon the designs of ambitious men.
The importance of this article will scarcely be doubted by any persons, who have duly reflected upon the subject. The militia is the natural defence of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers.
It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people.
The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.
