FOOD FOR THOUGHT—QUOTES

The Deplorable Infidel

 

“It is the nature and intention of a constitution to prevent governing by a party, by establishing a common principle that shall limit and control the power and impulse of party, and that says to all parties, thus far shalt thou go and no further. But in the absence of a constitution, men look entirely to party; and instead of principle governing party, party governs  principle. An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”

Thomas Paine, 1795

 

“The mobs of great cities add just so much to the support of pure government, as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of the people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.”

Thomas Jefferson

 

“If the liberties of America are ever completely ruined, of which in my opinion there is now the utmost danger, it will in all probability be the consequence of a mistaken notion of prudence, which leads men to acquire in measures of the most destructive tendency for the sake of present ease. When designs are formed to rase the very foundations of a free government, those few who are to erect their grandeur and fortunes upon the general ruin, will employ every art to sooth the devoted people into a state of indolence, inattention and security… They are alarmed at nothing so much, as attempts to awaken the people to jealousy and watchfulness; and it has been an old game played over and over again, to hold up the men who would rouse their fellow citizens and countrymen to a sense of their real danger, and spirit them to the most zealous activity in the use of all proper means for the preservation of the public liberty, as pretended patriots, intemperate politicians, rash, hot-headed men, Incendiaries, wretched desperadoes, who, as was said of the best of men, would turn the world upside down, or have done it already.”

Samuel Adams, 1771

 

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”

-Walter Williams-

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

The Democratic presidential candidates are threatening to load the Supreme Court with progressives if the present Court does not rule in their favor. The definition of treason is “the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government”. If overthrowing the Supreme Court is not betraying one’s country and attempting to kill the sovereignty of this nation, I don’t know what is. Their goal is to destroy this republic!

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

“The issue today is the same as it has been throughout history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.”

Thomas Jefferson
