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, Civil Libertarian

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!

Can you think of a reason for not sharing this?
Neither could I.
