“Taxes are a penalty on progress.”  James R. Cook
“In a world dependant on international trade and commerce, and staggering undera heavy load of international debt, no policy is more destructive than protectionism.  It cuts off markets, eliminates trade,, causes unemployment in the export industry all over the world, depresses the prices of export commodities, especially farm products of the United States.  It is the crowning folly of government intervention.”  Hans F. Sennholz
“You are surer that you are doing good when you pay money to those who work, as a recompense of their labor, than when you give money merely in charity.”  Samuel Johnson

“Big-government conservatives display a great naiveté about the way government works.  They appear to believe that limited programs will not grow or see their original purposes corrupted.  But little in the history of government justifies such faith.”  Michael D. Tanner
“It is amazing how many people think that the government’s role is to give them what they want by overriding what other people want.” Thomas Sowell
