You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.… Read More
The study of history is a powerful antidote to contemporary arrogance. It is humbling to discover how many of our glib assumptions, which seem to us novel and plausible, have been tested before, not once but many times and in innumerable guises; and discovered to be, at great human cost, wholly false.
I can only give the praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity.
Do not hide your faith and beliefs under a bushel basket, especially in this world that seems to have gone mad with political correctness.
…we are calling for a great reawakening of America, a resurgence of confidence, and a rebirth of patriotism, prosperity, and pride. And we are returning to the wisdom of our founders. In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign. What… Read More
The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.
And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need a caretaker” — so God made a Farmer. God said, “I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows… Read More
I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
AYN RAND (author of Atlas Shrugged, 1957)
The greatest advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from centralized government.
President Obama is like a tenant who has been evicted from a property, and he’s going to trash the place on the way out the door just out of spite.
When I was growing up, we were taught the stories of people whose inventions and scientific discoveries had expanded the lives of millions of other people. Today, students are being taught to admire those who complain, denounce and demand.
…I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor.
Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.
Have we ever had a president as blinded by his ideology and as oblivious or dismissive about his own biases and the double standards he invokes?
The president has consistently chosen to see things through the eyes of an aggrieved black activist rather than of a president of all the people. He’s not failed to speak out whenever a black is killed by a white police officer, but has said next to nothing about the continued slaughters of blacks by other blacks in the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, and other cities. He has made his sympathy for the Black Lives Matter movement obvious and never mind that the whole premise of the movement seems to be fallacious. No case has given the movement more impetus than the false claim that Michael Brown was shot down in cold blood while trying to surrender to a cop in Ferguson, Missouri two years ago.
Mob rule is not democracy. It threatens democracy, as it threatens lives — black or white — and all lives should matter.
Students who are kept out of a college because other students are admitted instead, under racial quotas, obviously lose opportunities they would otherwise have had.
The great promise of socialism is something for nothing. It is one of the signs of today’s dumbed-down education that so many college students seem to think that the cost of their education should — and will — be paid by raising taxes on “the rich.”
The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
