"Clinton's an unusually good liar. Unusually good. Do you realize that?"--Sen. Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.), Esquire Magazine, January 1996
"Extremism in defence of liberty is no vice. Tolerance in the face of tyranny is no virtue."
- Barry Goldwater
"Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil, and in its worst state, an intolerable one."
- Thomas Paine
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good."
"The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
