    1. In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.
    -- John Adams

    2. If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.
    -- Mark Twain

    3. Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But then I repeat myself.
    -- Mark Twain

    4. I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
    -- Winston Churchill

    5. A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.
    -- George Bernard Shaw

    6. A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money.
    -- G. Gordon Liddy

    7. Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.
    -- James Bovard, Civil Libertarian (1994)

    8. Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
    -- Douglas Casey, Classmate of Bill Clinton at Georgetown University

    9. Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
    -- P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

    10. Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.
    -- Frederic Bastiat, French economist(1801-1850)

    11. Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
    -- Ronald Reagan (1986)

    12. I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.
    -- Will Rogers

    13. If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free!
    -- P.J. O'Rourke

    14. In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.
    -- Voltaire (1764)

    15. Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you!
    -- Pericles (430 B.C.)

    16. No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session.
    -- Mark Twain (1866)

    17. Talk is cheap...except when Congress does it.
    -- Anonymous

    18. The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other.
    -- Ronald Reagan

    19. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery.
    -- Winston Churchill

    20. The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.
    -- Mark Twain

    21. The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.
    -- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

    22. There is no distinctly Native American criminal class...save Congress.
    -- Mark Twain

    23. What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.
    -- Edward Langley, Artist (1928-1995)

    24. A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.
    -- Thomas Jefferson

    25. We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
    -- Aesop

    FIVE BEST SENTENCES
    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

    2. What one person receives without working for...another person must work for without receiving.

    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation!

    Anyone who builds a city under sea level, in a hurricane zone, and packs it full of liberals is a damn genius in my book.

    Sorry but I'm going to have to give you an F for that one. It's not an intelligent "quote" it's a MORONIC statement. ;)
