A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on courage, fatherhood, government, nations, opposites, people, philosophy, simplicity, and support

That government is best which governs the least, so taught the courageous founders of this nation. This simple declaration is diametrically opposed to the all too common philosophy that the government should protect and support one from the cradle to the grave. The policy of the Founding Fathers has made our people and our nation strong. The opposite leads inevitably to moral decay.
