. . . Government should do only those things the people cannot do for themselves.
The best view of government is in the rearview mirror as you're driving away from it.
The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other.
Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.
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.
Let us ask ourselves; "What kind of people do we think we are?"
Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.
Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders.
There are no such things as limits to growth, because there are no limits on the human capacity for intelligence, imagination and wonder.
