Monday Quote

If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking... is freedom.

-Dwight D. Eisenhower

I am not sure what else I can add to this, except to pose a simple question to the progressives who think government can meet all of society's needs:

At what point do think it is good to stop?

A prison can be figurative as well a literal.

We're seeing a lot of Americans held prisoner by taxes and the soaring health-care premiums.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why the people do not put massive amounts of pressure to ditch the income tax and replace it with a consumption tax.

This will loose the binds of the government.

Thanks Chuck. It just hopped out at me on Sunday. The puppy took up a lot of my energy so, up it went.
