Quotes for a "new day" in government..

These quotes are gleaned from tweets, and FB posts.. I'll continue adding over the next few days as I am "struck" by important finds. Important as defined by "me" of course.. ;-)

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep...but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for ...they ...do so with the approval of their own conscience.” C.S. Lewis

"The size of the government correlates directly with the complacency of the church, not the institutionalized church but rather me and you." Melanie Yenovkian

"...history shows that the greatest human rights offenders are the states that are more focused on equal "stuff" than equal "rights" (USSR, DPRK, China). Big government meeting your every need sounds enticing, unless of course you happen to like liberty!" Steve Radabaugh

"The future is a place that is created first in the mind and will, next in activity. It is a place we are creating: its paths not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination." John Schaar

"To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will." Ronald Reagan

Social Justice definition: "Forced redistribution of wealth with a hostility towards individual property rights under the guise of charity and/or justice." (via Glenn Beck)

The American people have been silently busy with their lives. They have been complacent in churches, and government at all levels. We have been led into the "feel-good" movement, by the radicals from the 60's who now run the government. It is like the lesson of the frog who will leap out of a scalding hot pot, but will cook to death if the heat of the water is turned up very slowly, until it is too late. I pray the American people have reached their boiling point. Let's see what they will do.
