"The business of America is not business.
Neither is it war.
The business of America is justice
and securing the blessings of liberty."

Reader comments about this quote:
I understand what he is trying to say and tend to want to give it an innumerable number of stars a multiple of times. Theoretically, in a land far, far away, in a distant age, individual sovereigns united were to hire servants, representatives, and others to ensure justice and secure the blessings of liberty. A limiting constitution, based on the law of nature and of nature's God, was offered to firmly affix protections to inalienable rights and the status of the noble being - the free man. The occupying statist theocracy now infesting the land negates such sentiment. The business of Amerika is now lack of business and war. The business of Amerika is injustice, compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity and securing a liberty-less tyranny and despotism.

    Substitute the words US Government where he uses the word America, and you'd have a pretty accurate statement.

    A good example of the ignorance of George Will.

    Liberty has always been the ideal of America. Indeed, we have come a long way, but the process of liberating ourselves from the tradition of subservience to king, priest, and magistrate still continues. The original motto printed on coinage in America was 'Mind Your Business' and I think we should take heed today.

    dick, OK, give us your thoughts. Archer's 'Mind Your Business' was excellent and to the point. Instead of the ad hominem, tell us the why and basis of your thoughts.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    dick, please explainyour comment. How can anyone argue with this quote and then say that George Will is ignorant. It would take a mighty ignorant person to make a comment like yours.

    It seems that justice is only for Obama buddies these days.
