    Great truths

    I like number 7.


    Great Truths


    1. In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man
    is a shame, two is a law firm,
    and three or more is a congress.
    -- John Adams

    2. If you don't read the newspaper
    you are uninformed, if you do
    read the newspaper you are
    misinformed. -- Mark Twain

    3. Suppose you were an idiot. And
    suppose you were a member of
    Congress. But then I repeat
    myself. -- Mark Twain

    4. I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a
    man standing in a bucket and
    trying to lift himself up by the
    handle. --Winston Churchill

    5. A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on
    the support of Paul. -- George
    Bernard Shaw

    6. A liberal is someone who feels a
    great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money. -- G. Gordon
    Liddy

    7. Giving money and power to
    government is like giving whiskey
    and car keys to teenage boys.
    -- P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

    8. Government's view of the
    economy could be summed up
    in a few short phrases: If it
    moves, tax it. If it keeps
    moving, regulate it. And if it
    stops moving, subsidize it.
    --Ronald Reagan (1986)

    9. I don't make jokes.I just watch
    the government and report the
    facts. -- Will Rogers

    10. If you think health care is
    expensive now, wait until you
    see what it costs when it's free!
    -- P. J. O'Rourke

    11. No man's life, liberty, or
    property is safe while the
    legislature is in session.
    -- Mark Twain (1866)

    12. Talk is cheap, except when
    Congress does it. -- Anonymous

    13. The inherent vice of capitalism is
    the unequal sharing of the blessings.The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. --Winston Churchill

    14. The only difference between a
    tax man and a taxidermist is that
    the taxidermist leaves the skin.
    --Mark Twain

    15. There is no distinctly Native
    American criminal class, save
    Congress. -- Mark Twain

    16. What this country needs are
    more unemployed politicians
    --Edward Langley,
    Artist (1928-1995)

    17. A government big enough to give you everything you want, is
    strong enough to take everything
    you have. -- Thomas Jefferson


    FIVE BEST SENTENCES

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into
    prosperity, by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

    2. What one person receives without
    working for, another person must
    work for without receiving.

    3. The government cannot give to
    anybody anything that the
    government does not first take
    from somebody else.

    4. You cannot multiply wealth by
    dividing it.

    5. When half of the people get the
    idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the
    beginning of the end of any nation!

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Instead of opinion I should have said perspective.
