Quotes for January 20, 2008

Alan K. Simpson:

  • There is no ‘slippery slope’ toward loss of liberty, only a long staircase where each step down must first be tolerated by the American people and their leaders.

L. Neil Smith:

  • People who object to weapons aren’t abolishing violence, they’re begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men were always automatically ‘right.’ Guns ended that, and social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work.

Joseph Sobran:

  • Politicians never accuse you of ‘greed’ for wanting other people’s money — only for wanting to keep your own money.
  • The difference between a politician and a pickpocket is that the pickpocket doesn’t get indignant when you tell him to keep his hands to himself.

Thomas Sowell:

  • We enjoy freedom and the rule of law on which it depends, not because we deserve it, but because others before us put their lives on the line to defend it.
  • Freedom has cost too much blood and agony to be relinquished at the cheap price of rhetoric.
  • One of the common failings among honorable people is a failure to appreciate how thoroughly dishonorable some other people can be, and how dangerous it is to trust them. Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.
