A Quote by Philip D. Reed on action, america, constitution, debt, economics, freedom, government, honor, people, respect, separation, speech, understanding, and worship

A PRIMER OF AMERICAN SELF-GOVERNMENT I. Understand, honor and preserve the Constitution of the United States. 2. Keep forever separate and distinct the legislative, executive and judicial functions of government. 3. Remember that government belongs to the people, is inherently inefficient, and that its activities should be limited to those which government alone can perform. 4. Be vigilant for freedom of speech, freedom of worship, and freedom of action. 5. Cherish the system of Free Enterprise which made America great. 6. Respect thrift and economy, and beware of debt. 7. Above all, let us be scrupulous in keeping our word and in respecting the rights of others.

A Quote by Philip D. Reed on belief, character, conflict, force, observation, success, and world

It is sometimes frightening to observe the success which comes even to the outlaw with a polished technique, and we find ourselves doubting the validity of the virtues we have been taught. But I believe we must reckon with character in the end, for it is as potent a force in world conflict as it is in our own domestic affairs. It strikes the last blow in any battle.
