Quote(s) of the Day

  • Can the real Constitution be restored? Probably not. Too many Americans depend on government money under programs the Constitution doesn't authorize, and money talks with an eloquence Shakespeare could only envy. Ignorant people don't understand The Federalist Papers, but they understand government checks with their names on them.  Joseph Sobran
  • Politicians concerned about wealth and income inequality will not accept the reality that the only way to increase wealth and decrease income inequality is to reduce government. Bigger government only makes citizens poorer than they need be, and it is the least fortunate who are disadvantaged most.  Monty Pelerin
  • When you subsidize poverty and failure, you get more of both.  James Dale Davidson
  • A man is none the less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years.  Lysander Spooner
  • Banking and money should be left to the market, not an arm of the State.  Doug Casey
  • Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on. All these plans as a whole—with their common aim of legal plunder—constitute socialism.  Frederic Bastia
