A Quote by Theodore Parker on democracy, eternity, freedom, god, government, ideas, justice, laws, people, and principles

There is what I call the American idea. . . . This idea demands, as the proximate organization thereof, a democracy,-that is, a government of all the people, by all the people, for all the people; of course, a government of the principles of eternal justice, the unchanging law of God. For shortness' sake I will call it the idea of Freedom.

A Quote by Suzanne LaFollette on destruction, injustice, laws, men, prostitution, responsibility, and women

. . . nothing could be more grotesquely unjust than a code of morals, reinforced by laws, which relieves men from responsibility for irregular sexual acts, and for the same acts drives women to abortion, infanticide, prostitution, and self-destruction.

Suzanne LaFollette (1893 - ?)

Modern invention has banished the spinning wheel, and the same law of progress makes the woman of today a different woman from her grandmother.

A Quote by Supreme Court on congress, errors, finance, force, government, laws, possessions, problems, solution, taxes, and present

By forcing state governments to absorb the financial burden of implementing a federal regulatory program, Members of Congress can take credit for "solving" problems without having to ask their constituents to pay for the solutions with higher federal taxes. And even when the States are not forced to absorb the costs of implementing a federal program, they are still put in the position of taking the blame for its burdensomeness and for its defects....Under the present law, for example, it will be the [law enforcement official] and not some federal official who stands between the gun purchaser and immediate possession of his gun. And it will likely be the [law enforcement official], not some federal official, who will be blamed for any error.

Even where Congress has the authority under the Constitution to pass laws requiring or prohibiting certain acts, it lacks the power directly to compel the States to require or prohibit those acts.

The only thing that endures over time is the 'Law of the Farm.' You must prepare the ground, plant the seed, cultivate, and water if you expect to reap the harvest.
