-- Dave Barry

Sure there are dishonest men in local government. But there are dishonest men in national government too.
-- Richard Nixon

The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
-- Marcus Tullius

Under a democratical government the citizens exercise the powers of sovereignty; and those powers will be first abused, and afterwards lost, if they are committed to an unwieldy multitude.
-- Edward Gibbon
