"Forced to choose, the poor, like the rich,

love money more than political liberty;

and the only political freedom capable of enduring

is one that is so pruned as to keep the rich

from denuding the poor by ability or subtlety

and the poor from robbing the rich by violence or votes."

-- Will Durant

(1885-1981) American psychologist, philosopher




"The collection of taxes which are not absolutely required, which do

not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only

a species of legalized larceny. The wise and correct course to follow

in taxation is not to destroy those who have already secured success,

but to create conditions under which everyone will have a better chance

to be successful."

-- Calvin Coolidge

(1873-1933), 30th US President




"Who could impose such socialistic confiscatory rates?"

-- William F. Borah
