WISE WORDS

 
 A set of men who have interests aside from the interests of the people and who, to say the most of them, are, taken as a class, at least one step removed from honest men. ABRAHAM LINCOLN ON POLITICIANS

Politicians: a set of men who have interests aside from the interests of the people, and who, to say the most of them, are, taken as a class, at least one step removed from honest men.’ -   Abraham Lincoln.

WISE WORDS

When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion. When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing. When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favours. When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you. When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice; you may know that your society is doomed.            AYN RAND

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.

‘The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.’  

--Margaret Thatcher.

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

What this country needs are more unemployed politicians

If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it will cost you when its free!

-- P. J. O'Rourke

FIVE TRUTHS YOU CANNOT DISAGREE WITH

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity bylegislating 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 anybody anything that it did not first take from somebody else.

  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

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