ADAMS, SAMUEL:

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating conquest of freedom, go home from us in peace.  We ask not your counsel or arms.  Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.  May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Samuel Adams, speech at the Philadelphia State House, August 1, 1776.

“If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its patriots to its ruin.”  Samuel Adams (1780)

“It hath been said that an unjust peace is to be preferred before a just war.” — Samuel Butler: Speeches in the Rump Parliament.

CALLAWAY, OSCAR: USA – Congressman

“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press….They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. “An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.” (U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway, 1917 )

War against EUropean Union 1939-45. Nobel Laureat for Literature & Knighted 1953. Honorary US Citizenship conferred 1963

”And when in subsequent ages the State….has attempted to ride roughshod over the rights or liberties of the subject it is to this doctrine that appeal has been made, and never as yet, without success.”

Winston S. Churchill in his History of the English Speaking Peoples, on The Magna Carta.

“Freedom requires unflagging devotion and unflappable courage.  In fighting for freedom we must ‘never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never…never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.  Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy’.”

Justice Thomas quoting Winston Churchill

“From the days of Sparticus, Wieskhopf, Karl Marx, Trotsky, Rosa Luxemberg, and Emma Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite recognizable role in the tragedy of the French revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”

Winston S. Churchill, stated to the London Press, in l922.

“If Britain must choose between Europe and the open sea, she must always choose the open sea.” – Winston S. Churchill

“If we lose faith in our capacity to guide and govern ourselves… then indeed our story is told. Deprived of our sovereignty, loaded with debts and taxation, our commerce shut out by foreign tariffs and quotas, England would sink to a fifth-rate power and nothing would remain of all her glories except a population much larger than this island can support.”  – Winston S. Churchill

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” Winston S. Churchill.

“Men occasionally stumble over truth, most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”  Winston S. Churchill

Politics is more dangerous than war, for in war you are only killed once.

Winston Churchill

“The facts embodied in Magna Carta and the circumstances giving rise to them were buried or misunderstood. The underlying idea of the sovereignty of the law, long existent in feudal custom, was raised …into a doctrine for the national State.

Winston S. Churchill

“We are with Europe, but not of it. We are linked, but not combined. We are interested and associated, but not absorbed. And should European Statesmen address us in the words which were used of old -‘Shall I speak for thee to the King or the Lord of the Host?’ – – we should reply with the words of the Shunamite woman: ”Nay sir, for we dwell among our own people.'” Winston S. Churchill.

CLINTON, WILLIAM JEFFERSON:

‘President Clinton, of the USA’ In Anagram: ‘To copulate, he finds interns’

 

“If something makes you cry; you have to do something about it. That’s the difference between politics and guilt. I have news for the forces of greed and the defenders of the status quo: your time has come—and gone. It’s time for change in America.” – William Jefferson Clinton

COOLIDGE, CALVIN:

The chief business of the American people is business. ~ Calvin Coolidge, 17 January 1925 ~

CURRAN, JOHN PHILPOT:

“It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.” — John Philpot Curran: Speech upon the Right of Election, 1790. (Speeches. Dublin, 1808.) as quoted in Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations

 

DAVIS, JEFFERSON:

“The principle for which we contend is bound to reassert its self, though it may be at another time and in another form. Whatever tended to lead the people of any of the states to feel that they could be relieved from their constitutional obligations by transferring them to the federal government, or that they might otherwise evade or resist them, could not fail to be like the tares which the enemy sowed amid the wheat. The Union of states, formed to secure harmony among the constituent states, could not, without changing its character, survive such alienation as rendered its parts hostile to the security, prosperity, and happiness of one another.” –Jefferson Davis

LORD DEVLIN:

“Each Jury is a little parliament. The jury sense is the parliamentary sense. I cannot see the one dying and the other surviving. The first object of any tyrant in Whitehall would be to make Parliament utterly subservient to his will; and the next to overthrow or diminish trial by jury, for no tyrant could afford to leave a subject’s freedom in the hands of twelve of his countrymen. So ‘trial by jury’ is more than an instrument of justice and more than one wheel of the constitution; it is the lamp that shows that freedom lives.” – ‘Hamlyn Lectures’ on Trial by Jury. Published by Stevens & Sons Ltd. 1956-78, ISBN 0 420 43490 9

DICKINSON, JOHN:

“We are reduced to the alternative of choosing unconditional submission to the tyranny of irritated ministers, or resistance by force. The latter is our choice. We have counted the cost of this contest, and find nothing so dreadful as voluntary slavery. Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom

which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us.” — Revolutionary, John Dickinson, in the Continental Congress’s Declaration on the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms in 1775

DISRAELI, BENJAMIN: British Prime Minister

 

“Damn your principles! Stick to your party.” – Benjamin Disraeli

“The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings and ministers, but also with the secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents, and can at the last moment upset all the governments’ plans. ” – Benjamin Disraeli, 1876

DOUGLAS, WILLIAM O.: US Supreme Court Justice 1939-75

“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such a twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air– however slight– lest we become the unwitting victims of the darkness.” William O. Douglas

DOUGLASS, FREDERICK:

“Find out just what the people will submit to and you will have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” –Frederick Douglass

FRANKLIN, BENJAMIN:

“We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”  Benjamin Franklin, At the signing of the Declaration of Independence

“Let no pleasure tempt thee, no profit allure thee, no ambition corrupt thee, no example sway thee, no persuasion move thee to do anything which thou knowest to be evil; so thou shalt live jollily, for a good conscience is a continual Christmas.” –Benjamin Franklin

Nothing can contribute to true happiness that is inconsistent with duty; nor can a course of action comfortable to it, be finally without an ample reward. For, God governs; and He is good. — Benjamin Franklin 1768

“To err is human, to repent divine; to persist devilish.”  Benjamin Franklin

“Idleness and pride tax with a heavier hand than kings and parliaments. If we can get rid of the former, we may easily bear the latter.” Letter on the Stamp Act, July 1, 1765.  Benjamin Franklin

“There never was a good war or a bad peace.” .  Benjamin Franklin Letter to Josiah Quincy, Sept. 11, 1773.

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”  Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”  Benjamin Franklin

“When we desire to give up FREEDOM for SECURITY, we will not have nor do we DESERVE either one” Benjamin Franklin

“In Failing to Prepare, You are Preparing to Fail”  Benjamin Franklin Response-September 18, 1787

In Philadelphia, a Mrs. Powel “asked Dr. Franklin, Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy? A republic, replied the Doctor, if you can keep it.” Recorded by James McHenry, one of Washington’s aides, in his diary; published in the American Historical Review, XI [1906], 618.

Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in the world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes. Benjamin Franklin, Letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy [Nov. 13, 1789]

Fear not death; for the sooner we die, the longer shall we be immortal. Benjamin Franklin

GANDHI, MAHATMA:

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” Mahatma Gandhi (My Autobiography, p.446)

“Where the choice is between only violence and cowardice, I would advise violence.”  Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi warned us all against seven social sins:

politics without principle,

wealth without work,

commerce without morality,

education without character,

pleasure without conscience,

science without humanity,

worship without sacrifice.

GARFIELD, JAMES:

“Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature…. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” – James Garfield in 1877

“…Acting always within the authority and limitations of the Constitution, invading neither the rights of the States nor the reserved rights of the people, it will be the purpose of my Administration to maintain the authority of the nation in all places within its jurisdiction; to enforce obedience to all the laws of the Union in the interests of the people; to demand rigid economy in all the expenditures of the Government, and to require the honest and faithful service of all executive officers, remembering that the offices were created, not for the benefit of incumbents or their supporters, but for the service of the Government.” –James Garfield

GOLDWATER, BARRY:

“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” –Barry Goldwater

“A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away”  Barry Goldwater

HAIG, ALEXANDER:

“It’s not a lie. It’s a terminological inexactitude.” – Alexander Haig

HALE, EDWARD EVERETT:

“I am only one, but I am one.  I cannot do everything, but I can do something.  And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.  What I can do, I should do.  And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.” Edward Everett Hale

HAMILTON, ALEXANDER: 1757 – 1804 US Statesman

“A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one!” –Alexander Hamilton

“No legislative act contrary to the Constitution can be valid. To deny  this would be to affirm that the deputy (agent) is greater than his  principal; that the servant is above the master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people; that men, acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.  It is not to be supposed that the Constitution could intend to enable the representatives of the people to substitute their will to that of their constituents.  A Constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by judges as fundamental law.  If there should happen to be a irreconcilable variance between the two, the Constitution is to be preferred to the statute.” –Alexander Hamilton in Federalist Paper #78

HAY, JOHN(MILTON): 1838-1905 US Politician

“The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it.” — John Hay, 1872

HENRY, PATRICK: 1736-99 American Revolutionary & Statesman

“I know of no way of judging the future but by the past.” ~~ Patrick Henry, American Patriot

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.” — Patrick Henry

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.” — Patrick Henry, Virginia’s Ratification convention, 1788

“We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power…. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” — Patrick Henry

“…We shall not fight our battles alone.  There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations….”  — Patrick Henry

“Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the between having our arms under our own possession and under own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”  Patrick Henry

“Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?  Forbid it, Almighty God.  I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”  Patrick Henry 3/20/1775

“…Virtue, morality, and religion.  This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible.  These are the tactics we should study.  If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed…so long as our manners and principles remain sound, there is no danger.” — Patrick Henry

HYLAN, JOHN F.: USA

“The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.”

New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922

JACKSON, ANDREW: USA

“As long as our government is administered for the good of the people…as long as it secures to us the rights of person and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending….”

Andrew Jackson, father of the Democrat Party

JEFFERSON, THOMAS: USA

‘A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on Earth… and what no just government should refuse.’

Thomas Jefferson in a Letter to James Madison, Paris, Dec. 20, 1787

“A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” –Thomas Jefferson: Rights of British America, 1774

Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will. Bless our land with honorable ministry, sound learning, and pure manners.

Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and  arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitude brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues.

Endow with Thy spirit of wisdom those to whom in Thy Name we  entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and  peace at home, and that through obedience to Thy law, we may show  forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth.

In time of prosperity fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; all of which we ask through  Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

President Thomas Jefferson, March 4, 1805, offered A National Prayer for Peace:

“An elected despotism is not the government we fought for.” –Thomas Jefferson

“Bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal laws must protect, and to violate would be oppression.” Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801.

“But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security.” Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence

“Every citizen should be a soldier.  This was the case with the Greeks and the Romans and must be that of every free state.” – Thomas Jefferson

“… God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.  “

“The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts  they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,  it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty”.

… And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

Thomas Jefferson, Nov. 13, 1787, letter to William S. Smith see Jefferson On Democracy, 20 (S. Padover ed. 1939).

“God who gave us life gave us liberty.  Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?  Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.  Commerce between master and slave is despotism. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free.  Establish the Law for educating the common people.  This it is the business of the state to effect and on a general plan.” “God who gave us life gave us liberty.  And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?  Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

Thomas Jefferson, primary author of the Declaration of Independence

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks]  . . .  will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered . . . The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

Thomas Jefferson — The Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill, (1809)

“I do verily believe that a single, consolidated government would become the most corrupt government on the earth.” –Thomas Jefferson to Gideon Granger, 1800

“I have a right to nothing which another has a right to take away.”

Thomas Jefferson to Uriah Forrest, 1787. Papers, 12:477.

“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

Thomas Jefferson, 1800, as inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial

“I own I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.”

Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 12/20/1787

“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.” –Thomas Jefferson

“If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be . . . If we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed.” Thomas Jefferson

“If we run into such debts, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people in England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on and potatoes; have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow sufferers.”  Thomas Jefferson

“[If government have] a right of demanding ad libitum and of taxing us themselves to the full amount of their demand if we do not comply with it, [this would leave] us without anything we can call property.” — Thomas Jefferson: Reply to Lord North, 1775. Papers, 1:233

“It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own.”

Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush, with a Syllabus, Washington, Apr. 21, 1803

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”

Thomas Jefferson, Literary Commonplace Book

“No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another,

and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.”

Thomas Jefferson to Francis Gilmer, 1816.

“Of the various executive abilities, no one excited more anxious concern than that of placing the interests of our fellow-citizens in the hands of honest men, with understanding sufficient for their stations. No duty is at the same time more difficult to fulfill. The knowledge of character possessed by a single individual is of necessity limited. To seek out the best through the whole Union, we must resort to the information, which from the best of men, acting disinterestedly and with the purest motives, is sometimes incorrect.” –Thomas Jefferson

“[Oppose] with manly firmness [any] invasions on the rights of the people.”

Thomas Jefferson: Draft Virginia Constitution, 1776. Papers, 1:338

“Preach a crusade against ignorance; establish and improve the law for educating the common people. Let our countrymen know that the people alone can protect us against the evil of misgovernance.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” –Thomas Jefferson

“…rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.”– Thomas Jefferson to Isaac H. Tiffany, 1819.

The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.” Thomas Jefferson

“…the Federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow), working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little to-day and a little to-morrow, and advancing noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one. … when all government … in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.” Thomas Jefferson, 1821:

“The germ of destruction of our nation is in the power of the judiciary, an irresponsible body – working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall render powerless the checks of one branch over the other and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.”  Thomas Jefferson, 1821

“The majority, oppressing an individual, is guilty of a crime, abuses its strength, and by acting on the law of the strongest breaks up the foundations of society.”

Thomas Jefferson to P. Dupont, 1816.

“The most effectual means of preventing tyranny is to illuminate, as far as practical, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibiteth, that possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be able to know ambition under all of its shapes, and be prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes.” –Thomas Jefferson,  a Southern man

” The real power and property in the government is in the great aristocratical families of the nation. The nest of office being too small for all of them to cuddle into at once, the contest is eternal, which shall crowd the other out. For this purpose, they are divided into two parties, the Ins and the Outs, so equal in weight that a small matter turns the balance. ”

Thomas Jefferson … To Governor John Langdon, March 5, 1810

“The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind.” — Thomas Jefferson

“..the spirit of the times may alter, will alter.  Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may commence persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated, that the time for fixing every essential right on a legal basis is while our rulers are honest, and ourselves united. For the conclusion of this war [for Independence] we shall be going down hill.  It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will remain on us long, will be made heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.” Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1791

“The true foundation of republican government is the equal right of every citizen in his person and property and in their management.” — Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816.

“To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” –Thomas Jefferson

“To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association — the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”

Thomas Jefferson: Note in Tracy’s “Political Economy,” 1816.

We must declare eternal hostility over every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

Thomas Jefferson

“What has destroyed the liberty of man in every government which has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating of all cares and powers into one body….”

Thomas Jefferson

“Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government; whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied upon to set them to rights.” – Thomas  Jefferson

“You seem…to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all Constitutional questions: a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one, which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.  Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so.  They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps.  …And their power (is) the more dangerous, as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.  The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.”

Thomas Jefferson

“We shouldn’t confuse our own fatigue with the actual state of the struggle.”  — Alan Keyes

“The pro-life effort is a labor of love not just toward the unborn, but even more profoundly toward those who are in the grip of the moral confusion

and, yes, evil, of the abortion doctrine.” –Alan Keyes

“They can search all they like, they can come up with every kind of phony theme they can think of, but they will never find a basis for our common humanity and our common nationhood that is any better, any richer, any sounder, any stronger than those words right there (pointing to a mural of the Declaration of Independence) — that all of us are created equal and endowed by our Creator with our rights and with our dignity and with our worth.” –Alan Keyes at an RNC for Life event

“If we accept the view that the American people cannot be trusted with the material objects [firearms] necessary to defend their liberty, we will surely accept as well the view that the American people cannot be trusted with liberty itself.”

For those He granted us from the beginning of life, and particularly for those He has vouchsafed us during the past year [of war]. What should have become of us without His crowning help and protection? –Robert E. Lee

“Oh, if our people would only recognize it and cease from self-boasting and adulation, how strong would be my belief in the final success and happiness to our country! But what a cruel thing is war; to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbours, to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world! –Robert E. Lee

If I could save the Union freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by  freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that. What I do about slavery and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union.” –Abraham Lincoln in 1862 on his justification for the Northern War of Aggression against the constitutional secession of the South.

MADISON, JAMES:

A diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty. — James Madison 1825

“A government resting on the minority is an aristocracy, not a Republic, could not be safe with a numerical and physical force against it, without a standing army, an enslaved press and a disarmed populace.”…. James Madison, Federalist Papers # 46

“As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have property in his rights.” James Madison

“I believe that there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of people by gradual and silent encroachment than by violent and sudden usurpations.” James Madison

“It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such changes that no man who knows that the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?” –James Madison, Federalist #62

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”–President James Madison

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive and judiciary, in the same hands, whether on one, a few or many and whether hereditary, self appointed or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” – James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 47

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government are few and defined. … The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties and prosperities of the people; and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the state.” –James Madison – Federalist Papers, #45

“The preservation of a free government requires not merely, that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained; but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great Barrier which defends the rights of the people. The Rulers who are guilty of such an encroachment, exceed the commission from which they derive their authority and are Tyrants. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them, and are slaves.” — James Madison

The State Legislature is the voice of the State and must be the vehicle for implementing States’ Rights through selection of the U.S. Senators.  James Madison in the “Federalist Papers

“To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.” –James Madison

MASON, GEORGE:

“[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually.”. . . I ask, who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.”

George Mason, to Virginia’s U.S. Constitution ratification convention, 1788

“That the People have a right to keep and bear Arms; that a well regulated Militia, composed of the Body of the People, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe Defence of a free state.”

Within Mason’s declaration of “the essential and unalienable Rights of the People,” adopted by the Virginia ratification convention, 1788 George Mason, of Virginia

PAINE, THOMAS:

“These are the times that try men’s souls.”  Thomas Paine

“It is easy to see that when republican virtue fails, slavery ensues.” –Thomas Paine

“The duty of man is not a wilderness of turnpike gates, through which he to pass by tickets from one to the other.  It is plain and simple, and consists but of two points.  His duty to God, which every man must feel; and with respect to his neighbor, to do as he would be done by.  If those to whom power is delegated do well, they will be respected; if not, they will be despised: and with regard to those to whom no power is delegated, but who assume it, the rational world can know nothing of them.” –Thomas Paine

“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.”.  Thomas Paine

“Reason obeys itself; and ignorance does whatever is dictated to it.”–Thomas Paine

“How necessary it is at all times to watch against the attempted of power, and to prevent its running to excess.” –Thomas Paine

“He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression.” — Thomas Paine, 1795

“When I contemplate the natural dignity of man; when I feel…for the honor and happiness of its character, I become irritated at the attempt to govern mankind by force and fraud, as if they were all knaves and fools, and can scarcely avoid disgust at those who are thus imposed upon.”  — Thomas Paine

PAUL, RON: US – Congressman

“Throughout the presidential election controversy, we have been bombarded with references to our sacred ‘democracy.’ The problem, of course, is that our country is not a democracy. Our nation was founded as a constitutionally limited republic, as any grammar school child knew just a few decades ago.” — Ron Paul

PENN, WILLIAM:

“Those people who are not governed by GOD will be ruled by tyrants.” — William Penn

PHILLIPS, WENDELL: 1811-1884

“History is littered with wars which everyone knew would never happen.” – Enoch Powell

QUESADA, VINCENTE FOX:

“I want to move to a community of nations agreement that implies more than just trade. It would imply the free flow of citizens and common monetary policies with NAFTA, similar to The EUropean Union.”

Vicente Fox Quesada, Mexican President Elect – Canada, National Post.

QUINCY, Jr., JOSIAH:

“Oh, my countrymen! What will our children say, when they read the history of these times? Should they find we tamely gave away without one noble struggle, the most invaluable of earthly blessings? As they drag the galling chain, will they not execrate us? If we have any respect for things sacred; any regard to the dearest treasures on earth; if we have one tender sentiment for posterity; if we would not be despised by the whole world – let us in the most open, solemn manner, and with determined fortitude, swear we will die, if we cannot live free men!”

Josiah Quincy, Jr., 1788 published in the Boston Gazette

REAGAN, RONALD:

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people.  Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again.” –Ronald Reagan

“The time has come to turn to God and reassert our trust in Him…” –Ronald Reagan

ROOSEVELT, THEODORE:

“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any public official, save exactly to the degree he himself stands by the country.” Theodore Roosevelt

To educate a man in mind, and not in morals, is to educate a menace to society. Teddy Roosevelt

“No people on earth have more cause to be thankful than ours, and this is said reverently, in no spirit of boastfulness in our own strength, but with gratitude to the Giver of good who has blessed us with the conditions which have enabled us to achieve so large a measure of well-being and of happiness.” –Theodore Roosevelt

“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism…. A hyphenated American is not an American at all… Americanism is a matter of the spirit, and of the soul…The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German -Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans…each preserving its separate nationality…. The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans…. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American.” –Theodore Roosevelt

TYTLER, Prof. ALEXANDER: Edinburgh University, Britain (mid 1970s)

“All the world’s great civilisations have lasted approximately 200 years, and they have all gone through the following cycle; from bondage they developed great spiritual faith; from spiritual faith they developed courage; from courage they won their freedom; from freedom they gained their prosperity; from prosperity they developed selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency, and from dependency back to bondage.” – Prof. Alexander Tytler mid 1970s.

WASHINGTON, GEORGE:

“In time of peace, prepare for war.” — George Washington

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” — George Washington

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence–it is force! Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action”.  George Washington Farewell Address 1796

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves, whether they are to have any property they can call their own, whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed and themselves confined to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.” –General George Washington in an address to the Continental Army

“Let me conjure you in the name of our common country, as you value your sacred honor, as you respect the rights of humanity, and as you regard the military and national character of America, to express your utmost horror and detestation of the man who wishes, under any specious pretenses, to overturn the liberties of our country.” – George Washington

“[There is] no truth more thoroughly established than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness; between duty and advantage.” –George Washington

George Washington’s Farewell address on the floor of the Senate:

Quote:5th paragraph..line 13 thru 21..

“Profoundly penetrated with this idea, I shall carry it with me to grave, as a strong incitement to unceasing wishes, that Heaven may continue to you and the choicest tokens of its beneficence–that your union and brotherly affection may be perpetual–that the free constitution which is the work of your hands may be sacredly maintained–that its administration in every department may be with wisdom and virtue–that. in fine, the happiness of the people of these States, under the auspices of liberty, may be made complete, by so careful a preservation and so prudent a use of this blessing as   will acquire to them glory of recommending it to applause, the affection. and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it.”

9th paragraph line 3 thru 8,,

“The name of American. which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.  With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion. manners, habits, and political . You have in common cause, fought and triumphed together;  the independence and liberty you possess , are the work of joint and joint efforts–of common dangers, sufferings and success.”

“The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the        established government. All obstructions to the execution of the law, all combinations and associations under whatever plausible character with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are of this fundamental principle and of fatal tendency.  They serve to organize faction; to give it an artificial and extraordinary; to put in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ consistent and wholesome plans digested by common councils and modified by mutual interests.  However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines by which cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men will be enabled to the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have them to unjust dominion.”

“Of all dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” –George Washington

WEBSTER, DANIEL:

“Let our object be our country, our whole country, and nothing but our country.” –Daniel Webster

“I was born an American; I will live an American; I shall die an American!” –Daniel Webster: Speech, July 17, 1850.

“…There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it ever come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence.” — Daniel Webster

“God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.” Daniel Webster, Speech, June 3, 1834

“If there is anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due to my parents for instilling in me an early love of the Scriptures.  If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.” Daniel Webster

“Lastly, our ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment.  Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, nor any government secure which is not supported by moral habits… Whatever makes men good , makes them good citizens…  Finally, let us not forget the religious character of our origin.  Our fathers were brought hither by their veneration for the Christian religion.  They journeyed by its light, and labored in its hope.  They sought to incorporate its principles with the elements of their society, and to diffuse its influence through all their institutions, civil, political, or literary.  Let us cherish these sentiments, and extend this influence still more widely; in full conviction that this is the happiest society which partakes in the highest degree of the mild and peaceful spirit of Christianity.” Daniel Webster, December 22, 1820 A.D., to celebrate of the 200 year anniversary of the Pilgrim landing at Plymouth Rock

“I shall exert every faculty I possess in adding to prevent the Constitution from being nullified, destroyed, or impaired; and, even though I should see it fall, I will still, with a voice feeble, perhaps, but earnest as ever issued from human lips, and with fidelity and zeal which nothing shall extinguish, call on the PEOPLE to come to its rescue.”   Daniel Webster

WEBSTER, NOAH:

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to the unjust and oppressive.”

Noah Webster: An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution October 17, 1787

WILBERFORCE, Lord:

“Perhaps I may remind noble Lords of what our essential civil rights, as guaranteed by common law, are: the presumption of innocence; the right to a fair hearing; no man to be obliged to testify against himself; the rule against double jeopardy; no retrospective legislation; no legislation to be given an effect contrary to international law—an old principle which has been there for years; freedom of expression; and freedom of association. All common law to this country, and not intended to be superseded or modified by the new inter-state obligations in the convention.”

Lord Wilberforce, House of Lords, Hansard 1997.11.03: Col. 1279

WILSON, WOODROW:

“Liberty has never come from government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance.” Woodrow Wilson – 1912

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”  Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom

CAPTAIN JOHN PARKER:

“Every man of you who is equipped, follow me.  Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon. But if they want to have a war, let it begin here.” CAPTAIN JOHN PARKER (Commander, Lexington Militia Company) Lexington, MA, 19 April 1775, as British troops approached on their march to Concord to implement gun control

GENERAL GEORGE PATTON:

“It is certain that the two World Wars in which I have participated would not have occurred had we been prepared. It is my belief that adequate preparation on our part would have prevented or materially shortened all our other wars beginning with that of 1812.  Yet, after each of our wars, there has always been a great hue and cry to the effect that there will be no more wars, that disarmament is the sure

road to health, happiness, and peace; and that by removing the fire department, we will remove fires.  These ideas spring from wishful thinking and from the erroneous belief that wars result from logical processes.  There is no logic in wars.  They are produced by madmen.  No man can say when future madmen will reappear.  I do not say that there will be no more wars; I devoutly hope that there will not, but I do say that the chances of avoiding future wars will be greatly

enhanced if we are ready.” — General George Patton

SUN TZU:

“Nothing is more difficult than the art of maneuvering for advantageous positions.”  — Sun Tzu

War is a matter of vital importance to the state; a matter of or death, the road either to survival or to ruin.  — Sun Tzu

When the leader is morally weak and his discipline not strict, when his  instructions and guidance are not enlightened, when there are  no consistent  rules.  Neighboring rulers will take advantage of this.  -Sun Tzu

Those who excel in war first cultivate their own humanity and justice and  maintain their laws and institutions.  By these means they make their governments invincible. -Sun Tzu

It is a doctrine of war not to assume the enemy will not come, but rather  to rely on one’s readiness to meet him; not to presume that he will not attack, but rather to make one’s self invincible.  — Sun Tzu

The victories won by a master of war gain him neither reputation for wisdom  nor merit for courage.  How subtle and insubstantial, that the expert leaves no trace.  How divinely mysterious, that he is inaudible. Thus, he  is master of his enemy’s fate. — Sun Tzu

The general who in advancing does not seek personal fame, and in withdrawing is not concerned with avoiding punishment, but whose only purpose is to protect the people and promote the best interests of his sovereign is like a precious jewel to the state.  —  Sun Tzu

All warfare is based on deception.  There is no place where espionage is not used. Offer the enemy bait to lure him. — Sun Tzu

One who is not acquainted with the designs of his neighbors should not enter into alliances with them.  — Sun Tzu

Appraise war in terms of the fundamental factors.  The first these factors is moral influence. — Sun Tzu

The general who in advancing does not seek personal fame, and in withdrawing is not concerned with avoiding punishment, but whose only purpose is to protect the people and promote the best interests of his sovereign is like a precious jewel to the state. — Sun Tzu

While we have heard of stupid haste in war, we have not yet seen a clever operation that was prolonged. — Sun Tzu

A speedy victory is the main object in war. — Sun Tzu

The victories won by a master of war gain him neither reputation for wisdom nor merit for courage.  How subtle and insubstantial, that the expert leaves no trace.  How divinely mysterious, that he is inaudible.  Thus, he is master of his enemy’s fate.  —  Sun Tzu

Nothing is more difficult than the art of maneuvering for advantageous positions.  — Sun Tzu

To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence. — Sun Tzu

It is a doctrine of war not to assume the enemy will not come, but rather to rely on one’s readiness to meet him; not to presume that he will not attack, but rather to make one’s self invincible. — Sun Tzu

I say: “Know your enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated.”  When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal.  If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are sure to be defeated in every battle.  — Sun Tzu

“Those who excel in war first cultivate their own humanity and justice and maintain their laws and institutions. By these means they make their governments invincible.” — Sun Tzu

“Appraise war in terms of the fundamental factors. The first of these factors is moral influence.”  — Sun Tzu

War is a matter of vital importance to the state; a matter of life or death, the road either to survival or to ruin.  — Sun Tzu

AL GORE:

THE LIBERAL CASE STUDY — ONE BIG DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY

“A developing child in a dysfunctional family searches his parent’s face for signals that he is whole and all is right with the world; when he finds no such approval, he begins to feel that something is wrong inside. And because he doubts his worth and authenticity, he begins controlling his inner experience — smothering spontaneity,

masking emotion, diverting creativity into robotic routine, and distracting an awareness of all he is missing with an unconvincing replica of what he might have been.” –Al Gore in his epoch diatribe, “Earth in the Balance.”

ADOLF HITLER:

 

“A shrewd conqueror will always enforce his exactions only by stages…The more numerous the extortions thus passively accepted, so much the less will resistance appear justified in the eyes of the people, if the vanquished nation should end by revolting against the last act of oppression in a long series. And that is especially so if the nation has already patiently and silently accepted impositions which were much more exacting”

Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf

“State authority must provide for peace and order, and peace and in turn must conversely make possible the existence of state authority.  Within these two poles all life must now revolve…Ideas of ‘freedom,’ mostly of a misunderstood nature, inject themselves into the state conceptions of these circles”.   Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

“The broad mass of a nation will more easily fall victim to a big lie than a small one. The greater the lie, the greater chance that it will be believed. All epoch-making events have been produced not by the written, but the spoken word.” – Adolf Hitler

“The people about us are unaware of what is really happening to them: They gaze fascinated at one or two familiar superficialities, such as possession and income and rank and other outworn conceptions. As long as these are kept intact, they are quite satisfied. But in the meantime they have entered a new relation: a powerful social force has caught them up. They themselves are changed.  What are ownership and income to that?  Why need we trouble to socialize banks and factories? We socialize human beings.” – Adolf Hitler, Hitler to Hermann Rauschning

“The task of propaganda lies not in a scientific training of the individual, but rather in directing the masses toward certain facts, events, necessities, etc., the purpose being to move their importance into the masses’ field of vision.” –Adolf Hitler

“Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.” — Joseph Stalin.

Democracy:  government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or any other form of direct” expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic – negating rights.

“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.” — Cicero

“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.” Cicero

For the traitor appears not a traitor – he speaks in accents familiar to his , and he wears their face and garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.” Cicero.

“There are no acts of treachery more deeply concealed than those which lie  under the pretence of duty, or under some profession of necessity” Cicero.

He rots the soul of a nation – he works secretly and alone in the night to the pillars of a city – he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” The Roman senator, Cicero, in 42 BC

CHARLES DOW:

“There is always a disposition in people’s minds to think that existing conditions will be permanent.

And grumbles, “This isn’t fair dealing”,

My son, leave the Saxon alone.

R. Kipling

H.L. MENCKEN:

“Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.” –H.L. Mencken

“It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume…that every citizen is a criminal. Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact. They hunt endlessly for proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions. The moment they become aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him.” – H.L. Mencken

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and thus clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” — H.L. Mencken

“The fact is that the average man’s love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely.” — H.L. Mencken

Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage  and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies.” — H.L. Mencken, February 12, 1923, Baltimore Evening Sun

MARTIN NIEMOELLER [Cardinal]:

“In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak for me.”

— The statement was written by the Rev. Martin Niemoeller, a German Lutheran pastor who was arrested by the Gestapo in 1938. He was sent to the concentration camp at Dachau, where he remained until he was freed by the Allied forces in 1945.

MICHAEL NOVAK:

“In The Federalist, James Madison called the rage for equality ‘a wicked project.’ People differ and rewards differ—that’s the essence of both liberty and justice. No nation that rewards effort, talent, inventiveness and luck can even pretend to cherish equal outcomes. In an inventive and dynamic society, equal (even relatively equal) incomes can be achieved only by abandoning liberty for tyranny.”–Michael Novak

GEORGE ORWELL:

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act” George Orwell.

LOWELL PONTE:

“Symbols are key battlefields where the Culture War is being fought…. This is ‘urban renewal’ of the culture and the mind. The Left wants old edifices bulldozed, and the public square razed and leveled, so that the grand new Temple of All-Powerful Government can replace all that stood here before. All-Powerful Government is a jealous god that permits no other deity to compete with it, and no

version of history or values to be honored except its own. …Every inch of ground occupied by government must be bulldozed to remove any hint of Judeo-Christian religion, Leftists insist. …These Leftists want the State to be everything, and therefore all religions that compete with their cult must become extinct.” –Lowell Ponte

AYN RAND:

“Intellectual freedom cannot exist without political freedom; political freedom cannot exist without economic freedom; a free mind and a free market are corollaries.” — Ayn Rand, “For The New Intellectual,” For The New Intellectual

“Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel.” — Ayn Rand

“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”  Ayn Rand

WILL ROGERS:

Will Rogers sayings:

Don’t squat with your spurs on.

Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.

Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

There are two theories to arguing with a woman.  Neither one works.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.

There are three kinds of men. The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from  bad judgment.

If you’re riding’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier’n puttin’ it back.

After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring.  He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him…

The moral: When you’re full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE:

“tis the sport to see the engineer hoist on his own petard”  —  William Shakespeare

“Men of few words are the best men.” – William Shakespeare

As Shakespeare so presciently and prophetically said, through the words of John O’Gaunt, in Richard II:

“With inky blot and  rotten parchment bond

              That England that was wont to conquer others

              Hath made a shameful conquest of itself”

SIMON SCHAMA:

“There are moments in history when change arrives in a violent rush, decisive, bloody, traumatic; as a train-load of trouble, wiping out everything that gives a culture its bearings – custom, law and loyalty.” – Regarding 1066 in ‘History of Britain’, it is still applicable to today!

L. NEIL SMITH:

“If a politician isn’t perfectly comfortable with the idea of his average constituent, any man, woman, or responsible child, walking into a hardware store and paying cash — for any rifle, shotgun,  handgun, machine gun, anything — without producing ID or signing one scrap of paper, he isn’t your friend no matter what he tells you.”  L. Neil Smith

JOSEPH SOBRAN:

“The most successful revolutions aren’t those that are celebrated with parades and banners, drums and trumpets, cannons and fireworks. The really successful revolutions are those that occur quietly, unnoticed, uncommemorated. We don’t celebrate the day the United States Constitution was destroyed; it didn’t happen on a specific date, and most Americans still don’t realize it happened at all. We don’t say the Constitution has ceased to exist; we merely say that it’s a ‘living document.’ But it amounts to the same thing.” –Joseph Sobran

ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN:

“If decade after decade the truth cannot be told, each person’s mind begins to roam irretrievably.” –Alexander Solzhenitsyn

ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON:

“Ice and iron cannot be welded.” –Robert Louis Stevenson

E.P. THOMPSON: (1924 – 1993)

“This going into Europe will not turn out to be the thrilling mutual exchange supposed. It is more like nine middle aged couples with failing marriages meeting in a darkened bedroom in a Brussels hotel for a Group Grope.” – E.P. Thompson Historian, Sunday Times, 27 April 1975

THOREAU:

“There are a thousand hacking at the branches to one who is striking at the root.”     — Henry David Thoreau

“I think we should be men first, and subjects afterward.  It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right.” –Henry David Thoreau

ALEXIS De TOCQUEVILLE:

“Christianity is the companion of liberty in all its conflicts – the cradle of its infancy, and the divine source of its claims.”  Alexis De Tocqueville

“After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”  Alexis de Tocqueville – Democracy in America 1822

MARK TWAIN:

“A nation of character is filled with citizens who gradually build lives based on the living awareness that their deeds are judged by eyes of unchanging truth, by a will that is the real measure of what  “For in a Republic, who is “the country?”  Is it the Government which is for the moment in the saddle?  Why, the Government is merely a servant- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn’t.  It’s to obey orders, not originate them.”  Mark Twain.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example. – Mark Twain, 1894

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.– Mark Twain, 1899

Honesty: the best of all the lost arts. — Mark Twain, 1902

Hain’t we got all the fools in town on our side? And ain’t that a big enough majority in any town? – Mark Twain

“I believe that the Prince of Darkness could start a branch of hell in the District of Columbia … and carry it on unimpeached by Congress, even though the Constitution were bristling with articles forbidding hells in this country.” – Mark Twain 1868, The Real World

If you send a damned fool to Washington, and you don’t tell them he’s a damned fool, they’ll never find out. — Mark Twain, 1883

“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce and brave man, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” — Mark Twain

“Suppose you were an idiot… and suppose you were a member of Congress…But I repeat myself.” -Mark Twain

“Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing the matter with this ‘cept it ain’t so.” — Mark Twain, 1898

ALEXANDER FRASER TYTLER:

A Democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of Government.  It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that Democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a Dictatorship.  (Written by Professor Alexander Fraser Tytler, nearly two and one half centuries ago while our thirteen original states were still colonies of Great Britain. At the time he was writing of the decline and fall of the Athenian Republic over two thousand years before.)

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith;  spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance;  abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complaceny to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependency back again into bondage.” – Alexander Fraser Tytler, English historian

BALINT VAZSONYI:

“What the nation may not survive is the loss of its fundamental character. When all is said and done, when the debates about taxes, Social Security and bilingualism yield to the subjects of tomorrow, we realize amid the din that the United States, above all, is about freedom.” –Balint Vazsonyi

“There is much to be said in favour of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community.” – Oscar Wilde

GEORGE WILL:

“We define a set of fairly simple catechisms, the first part of which is we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. These rights include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Government exists to secure these rights, not to deliver happiness.” — George Will

Because of his political monomania, and because he is a perpetual preener who can strut even while sitting, Bill Clinton relished being president. The pomp, the cameras, the microphones make that office a narcissist’s delight… Some people want public office in order to do something, others in order to be something. Clinton was the latter sort…Clinton is not the worst president the republic has had, but he is the worst person ever to have been president.  George Will – (Washington Post)

CHURCHILL, Sir WINSTON SPENSER:

”And when in subsequent ages the State….has attempted to ride roughshod over the rights or liberties of the subject it is to this doctrine that appeal has been made, and never as yet, without success.” – Winston Churchill in his History of the English Speaking Peoples, on The Magna Carta.

“Freedom requires unflagging devotion and unflappable courage.  In fighting for freedom we must ‘never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never…never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.  Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy’.”  –Justice Thomas quoting Winston Churchill

“If Britain must choose between Europe and the open sea, she must always choose the open sea.” – Winston S. Churchill

“If we lose faith in our capacity to guide and govern ourselves… then indeed our story is told. Deprived of our sovereignty, loaded with debts and taxation, our commerce shut out by foreign tariffs and quotas, England would sink to a fifth-rate power and nothing would remain of all her glories except a population much larger than this island can support.”  – Winston S. Churchill

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” Winston S. Churchill.

“Men occasionally stumble over truth, most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”  Winston Churchill

Politics is more dangerous than war, for in war you are only killed once. Winston Churchill

“The facts embodied in Magna Carta and the circumstances giving rise to them were buried or misunderstood. The underlying idea of the sovereignty of the law, long existent in feudal custom, was raised …into a doctrine for the national State. Winston S. Churchill

“We are with Europe, but not of it. We are linked, but not combined. We are interested and associated, but not absorbed. And should European Statesmen address us in the words which were used of old -‘Shall I speak for thee to the King or the Lord of the Host?’ – – we should reply with the words of the Shunamite woman: ”Nay sir, for we dwell among our own people.'” Winston S. Churchill.

“Brussels is a madness. I will fight it from within.” Jimmy Goldsmith British businessman. The Times, 10 June 1994

LANCE – WATKINS, GREG:

“I challenge, ANY highly paid professional front bench British politician, to debate with me (an antiquarian & secondhand book dealer with no political qualifications) for 30 minutes, on main stream prime time TV, and give ONE good reason for Britain being a member of the European Union; which I can not in 90 seconds prove to be: untrue, misleading, inaccurate, a lie, propaganda or totally outweighed by the down side costs.”

Greg Lance – Watkins First made this Challenge August 1997 – to date – NO TAKERS!

KOHL, HELMUT: b.1930

“The future will belong to the Germans … when we build the house of EUrope. In the next two years, we will make the process of EUropean integration irreversible. This is a really big battle but it is worth the fight.” Helmut Kohl German Chancellor 1982-2000

TOYNBEE, ARNOLD:

“If we are honest with ourselves we shall admit that we are engaged on a deliberate and sustained and concerted effort to impose limitations upon the sovereignty and independence of the fifty or sixty local sovereign independent States which at present partition the habitable surface of the earth and divide the political allegiance of mankind…….  It is because we are attacking the principle of local sovereignty that we keep on protesting our loyalty to it so loudly……I will merely repeat that we are presently working discreetly but with all our might to wrest this mysterious political force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local national states of our world.  And all the time WE ARE DENYING WITH OUR LIPS WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH OUR HANDS because to impugn the sovereignty of the local national states of the world is still a heresy for which a statesman or a publicist can be, perhaps not quite burnt at the stake, but certainly ostracised and is credited.”

Professor Arnold Toynbee – 1931 – Copenhagen, 4th annual Conference: Institutions for the Scientific Study of International Relations, of the R.I.I.A. [Royal Institute for International Affairs]

“We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world.”

Professor Arnold Toynbee, June l931 speech before the Institute for the Study of International Affairs in Copenhagen.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR:

“What is important is to dwell upon the increasing evidence of the existence of a secret conspiracy, throughout the world, for the destruction of organized government and the letting loose of evil.”

Christian Science Monitor editorial, June 19th, l920

“The directors of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) make up a sort of Presidium for that part of the Establishment that guides our destiny as a nation.”

The Christian Science Monitor, September 1, l961

DALL, CURTIS: USA

“For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn’t. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations-One World Money group. Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared “ammunition” in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support.

Curtis Dall, FDR’s son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law

“The UN is but a long-range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One-World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power.

Curtis Dall, FDR’s son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law

“The depression was the calculated ‘shearing’ of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market….The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.”

Curtis Dall, FDR’s son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law

FAGAN, MYRON:

“The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies [marxism/fascism/socialism v. democracy/capitalism] to enable them [the Illuminati] to divide larger and larger portions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other.” Myron Fagan

GARDNER, RICHARD: USA – CFR Member

“The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down…but in the end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault.”

(CFR member Richard Gardner, writing in the April l974 issue of the CFR’s

journal, Foreign Affairs. )

KISSINGER, Dr. HENRY:

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond – whether real or promulgated – that threatened our very existence. It is then that all the peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario , individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”

Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberg Conference, Evians, France, 1991

LANCE – WATKINS, GREG: b.1946 British, Active EUrorealist

 

“The Regional policy of the EU and NAFTA is nothing more than an example of the problem, caused by the New World Order, not the solution. Regionalisation removes the influence of democracy at grass roots to the centralised bureaucracy with reduced and diluted influence for the people.” – Greg Lance – Watkins

“The arrogance and hubris of corrupt politicians will be responsible for every drop of blood spilt in the Wars of Disassociation, if Britain does not leave the EU on the 5th. September 2003.” – Greg Lance – Watkins

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years. – Greg Lance – Watkins

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945. – Greg Lance – Watkins

McDONALD, LARRY P.: US Congressman

“The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a One World Government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.”

( Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets)

MINTER & SHOUP:

“The planning of UN can be traced to the ‘secret steering committee’ established by Secretary [of State Cordell] Hull in January 1943. All of the members of this secret committee, with the exception of Hull, a Tennessee politician, were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. They saw Hull regularly to plan, select, and guide the labors of the [State] Department’s Advisory Committee. It was, in effect, the coordinating agency for all the State Department’s postwar planning.”

Professors Laurence H. Shoup and William Minter, writing in their study of the CFR, “Imperial Brain Trust: The CFR and United States Foreign Policy.” (Monthly Review Press, 1977).

RARICK, JOHN: USA – Congressman

“The Council on Foreign Relations is “the establishment.” Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also announces and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship.”

Former Congressman John Rarick 1971

ROCKEFELLER, DAVID:

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a

meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991. )

SCHLESINGER Jr, ARTHUR.: USA

“We are not going to achieve a New World Order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money.”

Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., in Foreign Affairs (July/August 1995)

SPANGLER, DAVID: UN

“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”

David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

TALBOT, STROBE:

“In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.”

Strobe Talbot, President Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, l992.

WARBURG, JAMES:

“We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or

consent.”

Statement by Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member James Warburg to The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17th, l950

WILSON, WOODROW:

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

Woodrow Wilson,The New Freedom (1913)

[10] SOME DEFINITIONS & ABBREVIATIONS

BURDEN OF PROOF: “The right which every man has to his character, the value of that character to himself and his family, and the evil consequences that would result to society if charges of guilt were lightly entertained, or readily established in Courts of justice:- these are the real considerations which have led to the adoption of the rule that all imputations of crime must be strictly proved.”

Recognised as: The Authoratitive Work ‘Taylor Upon Evidence’

FAIR TRIAL: “Throughout the web of the English criminal law one golden thread is always to be seen, that it is the duty of the prosecution to prove the prisoner’s guilt … No matter what the charge or where the trial, the principle that the prosecution must prove the guilt of the prisoner is part of the common law of England and no attempt to whittle it down can be entertained.” Stones Justice’s Manual. Preface to 1990 Edition

GUILT: There has in recent times been a proliferation of Statutory absolute offences.  In the common law guilt could only be inferred from a persons actions and evidence of his mental intent at that time. Thus stealing is the taking of property belonging to another with evidence of an intention to permanently deprive the owner of it.  The Statutory offence of simple possession of an unlicensed  “prohibited weapon” is a crime regardless of the circumstances as are selling apples by the pound or beef on the bone. Statutory “crimes” are whatever the legislature decides.  A victim or intent is not required.

Recognised as: The Authoratitive Work ‘Taylor Upon Evidence’

LAWSUIT: “Lawsuit, n. a machine which you go into as a pig and come out as a sausage.” –Ambrose Bierce

SEDITION: An insurrection movement tending towards treason, but wanting an overt act: attempts made by meetings or speeches, or by publications, to disturb the tranquillity of the state … a revolt against legitimate authority. ~ Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th. Edition

ADDITIONS TO THIS SELECTION

Are always welcome for consideration.

 

It is interesting to note that in one dictionary of quotations I consulted to check a quote ‘Politicians & Politics’ was sandwiched between ‘Police’ & ‘Pornography’ – you had best draw your own conclusion!

TO ADD SOMETIME!:

“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… If you do not take care, what begins by being an exception tends to become general, to multiply itself, and to develop into a veritable system.”

– Frederic Bastiat

The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson

as Dan Hannan MEP puts it, “Western Europe … accounted for 38 percent of world GDP. In 2010, that figure was 24 per cent. In 2020, it will be 15 per cent …. Far from joining a growing and prosperousfree trade area, the United Kingdom confined herself in a cramped and declining customs union”.

Christopher Booker in the Daily Mail
“As our politicians continually impose on us ever higher taxes and other costs supposedly in the cause of ‘fighting climate change’ — costs that have already helped to increase every family’s energy bills by an average £200 a year — they have been carried away by a collective fantasy that has no parallel in history.

And all this is happening in the name of a theory so fraudulent that the same people who told us the world is about to fry unless we close down all those power stations are now telling us the same power stations may be heading us into a new ice age.”

Christopher Booker in the Daily Mail
