Quotes of the Day - purpose of government

"The only proper purpose of a government is to protect man's rights, which means: to protect him from physical violence. A proper government is only a policeman, acting as an agent of man's self-defense, and, as such, may only resort to force only against those who start the use of force." ~ Ayn Rand

"An important art of politcians is to find new names for institutions which under old names have become odious to the public." ~ Talleyrand
