Quote of the Day

"One of the most insidious aspects of government paternalism is that it deprives people of the will to be free. By Means of continued doses of government welfare, people are transformed from lovers of freedom, motivated by a spirit of independence, to seeker after security unsure of their ability to stand on their own feet with the help of God. They are willing to forget about freedom if the government will promise them security."

Oh, freakin amen. I'm going to start a new political party called the Self-Reliance party. We will abolish Social Security and government "bailouts" before they abolish us. Come join us!
