"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

I've Been Quoted

A fine gentleman, defender of the Constitution, and firearms enthusiast, somewhere out in Arizona, Kevin Baker, has a great blog called "The Smallest Minority."  It is taken from a quote by Ayn Rand, author of Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead to name the two most famous novels.  The quote is part of his blog header and is well worth memorizing.

Kevin had a record setting comment session going regarding a small post, and out of 556 comments on the thread, he chose 'lil ole me to quote.  He didn't just quote part of my comment.  He posted the whole blasted thing!  Some of the most intelligent folks go to Kevin's blog, so I am honored and humbled beyond belief.

Unless you were willing to go read at least half of the comment thread, and pay particular attention to "Markadelphia" and the commenter's I cite, my comment may not seem very important to you, but I'm flattered all the same.   Thanks, Kevin
