Quote of the Day

“We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”

— Adolf Hitler

Quote of the Day

“[A]ny provider that commands 90 percent of the market — whether we’re talking about software, phone service, or heating oil — is, by definition, a monopoly.

Quote of the Day

“It is not my intention to do away with government. It is, rather, to make it
work — work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back.

our country and not love our countrymen, and loving them, not reach out a hand
when they fall, heal them when they are sick, and provide opportunities to make
them self-sufficient so they will be equal in fact and not just in theory? …
We are a nation under God, and I believe God intended for us to be free. It
would be fitting and good, I think, if on each Inauguration Day in future years
it should be declared a day of prayer.”
— Ronald Reagan

Quote of the Day

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same…
