Quotes of the Day - government excess

"The lesson that Americans today have forgotten or never learned -- the lesson which our ancestors tried so hard to teach -- is that the greatest threat to our lives, liberty, property, and security is not some foreign government, as our rulers so often tell us. The greatest threat to our freedom and well-being lies with our own government!" ~ Jacob G. Hornberger

"[It is not the purpose nor right of Congress] to attend to what generosity and humanity require, but to what the Constitution and their duty require." ~ William Branch Giles
