Quotes for the Day

These have been attributed to Benjamin Franklin but I can't verify that. It doesn't appear to be the case. Doesn't matter.

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

"...a frequent recurrence to fundamental absolutely necessary to preserve the blessings of liberty and keep a government free."

"The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself."

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

"Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature."

"This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins."
