If your not careful... Quotes to heed...


"A frequent reference to fundamental principles is absolutely necessary to preserve the blessings of Liberty, and keep a Government free."
- Benjamin Franklin -

"The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing."
- John Adams -

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people  who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing."

"That the sole object and only legitimate end of government is to protect the citizen in the enjoyment of life, liberty, and property, and when the government assumes other functions it is usurpation and oppression."  
- Alabama Constitution of 1901, Article I. Declaration of Rights, Section 35 -

"It is seldom that any Liberty is lost all at once."
- David Hugh -

"The true danger is when Liberty is nibbled away, for expedients and by parts....  The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men do nothing."
- Edmund Burke -

It is the responsibility of publishers and librarians, as guardians of the people's freedom to read, to contest encroachments upon that freedom by individuals or groups seeking to impose their own standards or tastes upon the community at large; and by the government whenever it seeks to reduce or deny public access to public information.
- American Library Association -

- F. A. Hayek -

"Better to starve free than be a fat slave."
- Aesop -

"Of Liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its existence, is unobstructed action according to our will. But Rightful Liberty is within limits drawn around us by the Equal Rights of others. And I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’, because the law is often but the Tyrants-will, and always so when it violates the Rights of an individual."
- Thomas Jefferson -

"The right of freedom being a gift from God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave."
- Samuel Adams -

"Force is the antithesis of freedom, but force must be used, if only to defend against force."
- Thomas Sowell -

"The world will not be destroyed by those whi do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." - Albert Einstein -
