A Bucket Full Of Nicely Saids..................

“Need” now means wanting someone else’s money. “Greed” means wanting to keep your own. “Compassion” is when a politician arranges the transfer.– Joseph Sobran
The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time.– Ayn Rand
(1905-1982) Author
All you have to do, is to see whether the law takes from some what belongs to them in order to give it to others to whom it does not belong. We must see whether the law performs, for the profit of one citizen and to the detriment of others, an act which that citizen could not perform himself without being guilty of a crime. Repeal such a law without delay. … [I]f you don’t take care, what begins by being an exception tends to become general, to multiply itself, and to develop into a veritable system.– Frederic Bastiat
(1801-1850) [Claude Frederic Bastiat] French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before — and immediately following — the French Revolution of February 1848

The policy of American government is to leave its citizens free,
neither restraining them nor aiding them in their pursuits.
– Thomas Jefferson
