Perhaps the world would run by itself if government would get out of the way.
 -- jim k, Austin, Tx     
    In a world where individual sovereigns have representatives, the sovereign does and his representatives have no authority to get in his way. I am not personally familiar with a representative republic, any where in the world that has individual sovereign rights represented.

    This is one of the best expresion in French about human individual liberty.
    It's a Pity that this expresion is not followed in France today because of the rule of Socialism.

    Another French saying from medieval times I've heard..."Drink the Wine, eat the Bread and let the world be the world." Now if we could just remove the controlling / parasitic nature of a "progressive or Neo-Con" government, this old French saying might be one to live by. :)

    Ahhh yes, the French. Try that one on Hitler.
     -- SCSURFR, L     
    A good slogan for us Libertarians.
