If you do, name them.

With which of them do you agree?

With which do you disagree?


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.
Man is not free unless government is limited.

No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!

One way to make sure crime doesn't pay would be to let the government run it.

Some people wonder all their lives if they've made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem.

The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.

There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.

We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

We should measure welfare's success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.

When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat.

Without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure.

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

shoprat: It was a bit of a trick. Not ALL of them can be attributed to him.

sue: That was a good one!

PCC: Yeah. I have deep respect for Marines.
