Great Truths ~


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

8. 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)
9. I don't make jokes.  I just watch
the government and report the  
facts. -- Will Rogers
10. If you think health care is  
expensive now, wait until you  
see what it costs when it's free!  
                                                 -- P. J. O'Rourke                                      

11. No man's life, liberty, or  
property is safe while the  
legislature is in session.  
-- Mark Twain (1866)
12. Talk is cheap, except when  
Congress does it. -- Anonymous 

13. 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 

14. The only difference between a  
tax man and a taxidermist is that  
the taxidermist leaves the skin.  
--     Mark Twain
15. There is no distinctly Native  
American criminal class, save  
Congress. -- Mark Twain 

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

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


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!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
