Happy 4th of July

Some brief thoughts for you on this day:

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it
is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. - George Washington

When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it
spreads. - Ron Paul

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

“But whether the resistance against government tyrants is non-violent or
physically violent, the effort to overthrow state oppression qualifies as true patriotism.” - Ron Paul

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

Keep 'em clean, boys. And keep your powder dry.

Oh yeah, and a Happy Secession Day to you!
