Henry Van Dyke

Welfare makes you dependent upon someone to take care of you.

The greatest obstacle to the welfare state is not greed but private charity that makes the welfare state irrelevant; the greatest obstacle to re-education of children in the name of the collective is allegiance to a higher power. More than that, the greatest obstacle to the state as god is an actual God above the state.
Larger deficits are necessary and proper means to mitigate unemployment as the far greater evil in terms of human welfare.

I call crony capitalism, where you take money from successful small businesses, spend it in Washington on favored industries, on favored individuals, picking winners and losers in the economy, that's not pro-growth economics.

Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
