“Ron Paul is not the answer to all our problems. He is simply the only candidate who’s convinced that neither is government.”– Eric Olsen
“In Washington, D.C. it costs $7,000 in city fees to open a pushcart. In
California, up to eighty federal and state licenses are required to open a
small business. In New York, a medallion to operate a taxicab costs $150,000.
More than 700 occupations in the United States require a government license.
Throughout the country, church soup kitchens for the homeless are being closed
by departments of health. No wonder so many people turn to crime and violence
to survive.”– Jarret Wollstein

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you
want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want
government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want
government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist.– Joseph Sobran (1995)
“If I see a person in need of food, what if I walk up to another person and, through threats, intimidation and coercion, take his money and give it to the needy person? I believe and hope that most Americans would see such an act as theft. Would the conclusion differ if we collectively agreed to take one person’s money to feed the needy person? It’d still be theft. Immoral acts such as theft, rape and murder don’t become moral when done collectively through a majority decision.”– Walter Williams
“The whole gospel of Karl Marx can be summed up in a single sentence: Hate the
man who is better off than you are. Never under any circumstances admit that
his success may be due to his own efforts, to the productive contribution he
has made to the whole community. Always attribute his success to the
exploitation, the cheating, the more or less open robbery of others. Never
under any circumstances admit that your own failure may be owing to your own
weakness, or that the failure of anyone else may be due to his own defects -
his laziness, incompetence, improvidence, or stupidity.”– Henry Hazlitt
(1894-1993) American economist, philosopher, literary critic and journalist
