There’s never been a nation like the United States, ever. It begins with the principles of our founding documents, principles that recognize that our rights come from God, not from our government.
Government is inherently incompetent, and no matter what task it is assigned, it will do it in the most expensive and inefficient way possible.
No government ought to be without censors and where the press is free, no one ever will. Chance is the pseudonym of God when he did not want to sign.
If there are men in this country big enough to own the government of the United States, they are going to own it.
