The dearest ambition of a slave is not liberty, but to have a slave of his own.
more Sir Richard Francis Burton quotes
Our enemies are a radical network of terrorists -- and every government that supports them.
more George W. Bush quotes
I want him [Saddam Hussein]. I want -- I want justice. There is an old poster seen out west. As I recall, it said, Wanted Dead or Alive.
more George W. Bush quotes
Today the Justice Department did issue a blanket alert. It was in recognition of a general threat we received. This is not the first time the Justice Department have acted like this. I hope it is the last. But given the attitude of the evildoers, it may not be.
more George W. Bush quotes
Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty.
more George W. Bush quotes
We need an energy bill that encourages consumption.
more George W. Bush quotes
We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th.
more George W. Bush quotes
The love of liberty that is not a real principle of dutiful behavior to authority is as hypocritical as the religion that is not productive of a good life.
more Bishop Joseph Butler quotes
Men willingly believe what they wish.
more Gaius Julius Caesar quotes
Today the grand jury is the total captive of the prosecutor who, if he is candid, will concede that he can indict anybody, at any time, for almost anything, before any grand jury.
more William J. Campbell quotes
I believe Socialism is the grandest theory ever presented, and I am sure it will someday rule the world. Then we will have attained the Millennium... Then men will be content to work for the general welfare and share their riches with their neighbors.
more Andrew Carnegie quotes
If you fear making anyone mad, then you ultimately probe for the lowest common denominator of human achievement.
more Jimmy Carter quotes
As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it.
more Dick Cavett quotes
The majority of us are for free speech when it deals with subjects concerning which we have no intense feelings.
more Edmund B. Chaffee quotes
But those dealing in the actual manufacture of mind are dealing in a very explosive material. The material is not merely the clay of which man is master, but the truths or semblances of truth which have a certain mastery over man. The material is explosive because it must be taken seriously. The men writing books really are throwing bombs.
more Gilbert Keith Chesterton quotes
Journalism is popular, but it is popular mainly as fiction. Life is one world, and life seen in the newspapers is another.
more Gilbert Keith Chesterton quotes
There are a lot of lies going around... and half of them are true.
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.
more Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
The road to tyranny, we must never forget, begins with the destruction of the truth.
more Bill Clinton quotes
The road to tyranny, we must remember, begins with the destruction of the truth.
more Bill Clinton quotes
We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans...
more Bill Clinton quotes
The other thing we have to do is to take seriously the role in this problem of...older men who prey on underage women...There are consequences to decisions and...one way or the other, people always wind up being held accountable.
more Bill Clinton quotes
Every time Bush talks about trust it makes chills run up and down my spine. The way he has trampled on the truth is a travesty of the American political system.
more Bill Clinton quotes
It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is.
more Bill Clinton quotes
The purpose of government is to rein in the rights of the people.
more Bill Clinton quotes
You can't say you love your country and hate your government.
more Bill Clinton quotes
I've said I've never broken the drug laws of my country, and that is the absolute truth.
more Bill Clinton quotes
It depends on what the meaning of the word is. If the– if he– if "is" means is and never has been, that is not– that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement.... Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.
more Bill Clinton quotes
If the author of the Declaration of Independence were to utter such a sentiment today, the Post Office Department could exclude him from the mail, grand juries could indict him for sedition and criminal syndicalism, legislative committees could seize his private papers ... and United States Senators would be clamoring for his deportation that he... should be sent back to live with the rest of the terrorists.
more Frank I. Cobb quotes
The victim to too severe a law is considered as a martyr rather than a criminal.
more Charles Caleb Colton quotes
Censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion... In the long run it will create a generation incapable of appreciating the difference between independence of thought and subservience.
more Henry Steele Commager quotes
Thus arbitrary power will have divided men of superior intelligence into two groups: the former will be seditious, the latter corrupt...
more Benjamin Constant quotes
We consistently have adhered to the principle that the will of the people is the paramount consideration. Our goal today…[is] to reach the result that reflects the will of the voters…. The laws are intended to facilitate and safeguard the right of each voter to express his or her will in the context of our representative democracy. Technical statutory requirements must not be exalted over the substance of this right.
more Florida Supreme Court quotes
What censorship accomplishes, creating an unreal and hypocritical mythology, fomenting an attraction for forbidden fruit, inhibiting the creative minds among us and fostering an illicit trade. Above all, it curtails the right of the individual, be he creator or consumer, to satisfy his intellect and his interest without harm. In our law-rooted society, we are not the keeper of our brother’s morals – only of his rights.
more Judith Crist quotes
Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to. 
more Theodore Dalrymple quotes
The Constitution is a delusion and a snare if the weakest and humblest man in the land cannot be defended in his right to speak and his right to think as much as the strongest in the land.
more Clarence S. Darrow quotes
Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word.
more Charles De Gaulle quotes
Our repentance is not so much regret for the ill we have done as fear of the ill that may happen to us in consequence.
more François Duc de La Rochefoucauld quotes
He who is not sure of his memory, should not undertake the trade of lying.
more Michel de Montaigne quotes
There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.
more Charles de Montesquieu quotes
The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principles on which it was founded.
more Charles-Louis De Secondat quotes
There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.
more Charles-Louis De Secondat quotes
I hear much of people's calling out to punish the guilty, but very few are concerned to clear the innocent.
more Daniel Defoe quotes
People sometimes rationalize their greed by saying that it is all for the good of their children but this is nothing but an excuse they use to make their despicable actions appear respectable and praiseworthy.
more Democritus quotes
If we move away from the American tradition of lawyers defending those with whom they vehemently disagree -- as we temporarily did during the McCarthy period -- we weaken our commitment to the rule of law... So beware of an approach which limits advocacy to that which is approved by the standards of political correctness.
more Alan Dershowitz quotes
The GOP has as much commitment to small government as the Democratic Party has to a strong national defense.
more John Dobbins quotes
I was at last beginning to see how ignorant I had become, how long since I had read anything except Party literature. I thought of our bookshelves stripped of books questioned by the Party, how when a writer was expelled from the Party his books went, too. I thought of the systematic rewriting of Soviet history, the revaluation, and in some cases the blotting out of any mention of such persons as Trotsky. I thought of the successive purges. Suddenly I too wanted the answers to the questions Senator Hickenlooper was asking and I wanted the truth. I found myself hitting at the duplicity of the Communist Party.
more Dr. Bella Dodd quotes
Welfare rights are pseudo-rights: They rely on the force of law to take private property for the use of others without compensation and without consent. Public charity is forced charity; it is not a virtue but a vice.
more James A. Dorn quotes
Yes; truth blends well with untruth. It is one of the maladies of our age, a sign of sheer nervousness, to profess a frenzied allegiance to truth in unimportant matters, to refuse consistently to face her where graver issues are at stake.
more Norman Douglas quotes
I think it might be important to point out that this country is a one-party country. Half of that party is called Republican and half is called Democrat. It doesn’t make any difference. All the really good ideas belong to the Libertarians.
