"I have little interest in 'streamlining' government, nor in making it 'more efficient,' for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to 'promote welfare,' for I propose to extend Freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is 'needed' before I have first determined whether it is Constitutionally permissible. And, when attacked for 'neglecting my constituents interests,' I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is Liberty, and in that cause I am doing the best I can." --Barry Goldwater, 1960
"Dear Washington DC:
It’s over. We’re leaving. We aren't asking your permission to leave.
We aren’t asking for a legal divorce.
We’re just ending this relationship right here and now.
We’re rescinding the authority we gave you in 1788.
Leave us alone.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or yourarms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." -Samuel Adams
