"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 Miss Him

Unfortunately, I did not appreciate Ronald Reagan as much as I should have when he was president.  I was too young and didn't understand how dangerous and evil the rabid leftists were, even though some of them were supposedly friends of mine at the time.  They hated the man.

This is part of his farewell speech that makes me swell with pride.  This is the kind of oratory that makes politicians want to compare themselves to Reagan.
