Quote of the Day

The government that is big enough to give you what you want, is big enough to take anything they can from you. - Newbius 
We're not at the "Jews in the Attic" or "People in Boxcars" point, not yet anyway.  But our political parties are starting to act more like Marius and Sulla than they are Washington and Lincoln.  How far is it from sending police to raid a business because the owner supports a political opponent to raiding a political meeting to get rid of political opposition?

Thank you for the link. I just paraphrased Jefferson, as I have no original thoughts of my own. :)

Possible correction: the quote may originate from that other stalwart defender of Liberty, Gerald Ford.
