"Great Quotes" from great people...

“A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away.” — Barry Goldwater
____________________________________________________________________
“Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature … If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” — James Garfield in 1877
____________________________________________________________________
“The government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi-occult power which….pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I.” — British military historian Major General J.F.C. Fuller, l941
____________________________________________________________________
“Find out just what the people will submit to and you will have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” — Frederick Douglas
____________________________________________________________________
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.” — Edward Everett Hale
____________________________________________________________________
“...Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed…so long as our manners and principles remain sound, there is no danger.” — Patrick Henry
____________________________________________________________________
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” — Hosea 4:6
____________________________________________________________________
“The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually runs the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.” — New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922

____________________________________________________________________
“I believe in only one thing: liberty; but I do not believe in liberty enough to want to force it upon anyone.” — H. L. Mencken
____________________________________________________________________
“It behoves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own.” — Thomas Jefferson
____________________________________________________________________
“Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all his laws.” — John Adams
____________________________________________________________________
“ ... No “terrorist” gene is known to exist or is likely to be found… Surely the(y), and their supporters were afflicted by something that caused their metamorphosis from normal human beings capable of gentleness and affection into desperate, maddened, fiends with nothing but murder in their hearts and minds. What was that? Simple logic says that we must go to the roots of terror. Only a fool can believe that the services of a suicidal terrorist can be purchased, or that they can be bred at will anywhere.” – Ouch Borith: Permanent Representative Of The Kingdom Of Cambodia To The UN, 10/03/2001
____________________________________________________________________
“The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no such duty [to submit his books and papers for an examination] to the State, since he receives nothing therefrom, beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are such as existed by the law of the land [Common Law] long antecedent to the organization of the State, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his rights are a refusal to incriminate himself, and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant of the law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights.” — U.S. Supreme Court, Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43 at 47 (1905).
____________________________________________________________________
“When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do.” — William Blake
____________________________________________________________________
“To preserve their [the people’s] independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our selection between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.” — Thomas Jefferson
____________________________________________________________________
“It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.” — John Steinbeck
____________________________________________________________________
“If you keep on excusing, you eventually give your blessing to the slave camp, to cowardly force, to organized executioners, to the cynicism of great political monsters; you finally hand over your brothers.” — Albert Camus
____________________________________________________________________
“The ultimate error is the refusal to look evil in the face.” — Rollo May
____________________________________________________________________
“Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.” — Demosthenes
____________________________________________________________________
“In a country well governed poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed wealth is something to be ashamed of.” — Confucius
____________________________________________________________________

"We have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics." ~Joe Biden

Comment by Less Prone on November 7, 2020 at 12:19pm

"We believe the American people deserve to have full transparency into all vote counting and election certification, and that this is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process. From the beginning we have said that all legal ballots must be counted and all illegal ballots should not be counted, yet we have met resistance to this basic principle by Democrats at every turn. We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law to guarantee that the American people have confidence in our government. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation."

November 6, 2020 President Donald J. Trump

Here's 2 Greatly fuctup quotes from some equally Greatly fuctup people

"I want to tell you something very clear, don't worry about American pressure on Israel, [Israel] control[s] America, and the Americans know it.~ Ariel Sharon to Shimon Peres, October 3rd, 2001, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

"It does not matter what you do, America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the worlds's biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of god. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves." ~Benjamin Netanyahu 1990

"“When government removes citizens right to bear arms, it is all citizens duty to remove governments right to govern” ~George Washington

"I regret to say that we of the FBI are powerless to act in cases of oral-genital intimacy, unless it has in some way obstructed interstate commerce" ~J. Edgar "Transtesticle" Hoover

"The opposite of Love is not hate, it's indifference, The opposite of Art is not ugliness, it's indifference, The opposite of Faith is not Heresy, it's indifference, and The opposite of Life is not Death, it's indifference" ~Elie Weisel 

Comment by Boris on December 4, 2018 at 7:09pm

"We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world--a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us...No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we'll kill you.
