These are some great quotes about the government, all from one former politician:
“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.”
“The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
“The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”
“I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.”
“The taxpayer: That’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.”
“Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end, and no sense of responsibility at the other,”
“The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.”
“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.”
“No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.”
…All of these are quotes from former President Ronald Reagan.
