"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
Suspect every one who approaches that jewel.
Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined."

Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates:
The Forgotten War that Changed American History * click *
by Brian Kilmeade (of Fox News)
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization,
it expects what never was and never will be"
All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.

"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain
too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from
distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will
pursue his principles unto death."
--Thomas Paine in The American Crisis, 1776

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties,
nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in
their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders."
--Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, 1775
"The source of the government's authority is 'the consent of the governed.' This means that the government is not the ruler, but the servant or agent
of the citizens" -- Ayn Rand,
"The change we seek has always required great struggle and great sacrifice." - - Barack Hussein Obama
"The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master."- - - Ayn Rand
Here's the whole quote: "It stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there's someone
being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master."
The Fountainhead, 1943.
"The origin and outset of the American Republic
contain lessons of which posterity ought not to be deprived."
--James Madison, to William Eustis, 1819

"If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over
men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."
James Madison, Federalist #51
Written between October 1787 and August 1788, The Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing
under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explain the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections
raised by its opponents. Thomas Jefferson described the work as "the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written."

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier
to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man
for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools
should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude
of fools such as those who made him their president."
"The philosophy of gun control: Teenagers are roaring through town at 90MPH,
where the speed limit is 25.
Your solution is to lower the speed limit to 20."
- Sam Cohen (inventor of the neutron bomb)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms
and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
-- George Washington
LIFE IS LIKE A COIN.
You can choose to spend it any way you wish,
But you can only spend it once.
"Democracy tends to ignore, even deny, threats to its existence because it loathes doing what is needed to counter them. It awakens only when the danger
becomes deadly, imminent, evident. By then, either there is too little time left for it to save itself, or the price of survival has become crushingly high."
Jean-Francois Revel - (1924-2006) French politician, journalist, author, philosopher

Radio reception note: occasionally when the reception drops in the middle of the day, the AM station is conducting a mandatory FCC test. Without warning, the station switches to low power operation to simulate nighttime operation. The test seems to last about half an hour, and there's nothing we can do about it. You might like to switch to live streaming the station from your computer. That's what happened July 11th during the end of Rush on KTTH.
