"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

Plain Language

When you start believing that some other person is more qualified to interpret the Constitution of the United States than you are, that is the day that you start becoming a slave.

I know who I am talking to.

Let's all be serious adults here.

The founding fathers wanted to make very sure that the language that they used could not come back to bite them on the ass.

They had no intention that 9 people in black robes would be allowed to twist words in such a way as to strip them of freedom.

They had no intention that people would be elected to congress so that they could strip them of freedom.

People don't risk their lives so that other people can enslave them.
