"In framing a government, which is to be administered by men over men,

the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government

to control the governed, and in the next place, oblige it to control


-- James Madison

(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President

Source: The Federalist; Feb.8, 1788




"Can the real Constitution be restored? Probably not.

Too many Americans depend on government money under

programs the Constitution doesn't authorize, and

money talks with an eloquence Shakespeare could only envy.

Ignorant people don't understand The Federalist Papers,

but they understand government checks with their names on them."

-- Joseph Sobran

(1946- ) Columnist




"If newsmen do not tell the truth as they see it

because it might make waves, or if their bosses decide

something should or should not be broadcast

because of Washington or Main Street consequences,

we have dishonored ourselves and

we have lost the First Amendment by default."

-- Richard Salant

(1914-1993) former President of CBS News
