~ H. L. Mencken

~ Murray N. Rothbard

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

~ Lorne Strider
