Makes Ya Think

Or it should....

"Never appeal to a man's better nature, he may not have one. Invoking his self interest gives you more leverage" Robert Heinlein

"Let's not confuse a free and tolerant society with one with no moral underpinnings. Those moral underpinnings make it all possible" Star Parker

"I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for public charity, adding that to approve such spending would be contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded" Franklin Pierce

"I feel obliged to withhold my approval of the plan to indulge in benevolent and charitable sentiment through the appropriation of public funds. I find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution" Grover Cleveland

"We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity, but as members of Congress, we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money" David Crockett

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty" Thomas Jefferson
