Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded—here and there, now and then—are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck."”     Robert A. Heinlein,    The Notebooks of Lazarus Long

The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money. — Alexis de Tocqueville

I found this to be particularly appropriate given what I discuss in this post.
