Some Witty Perspective

In light of the current state of our Provincial Government I thought it might be interesting to add a little perspective from across time and culture from a few much more well known then myself. Lets start with one that may indeed highlight where our problems begin...

Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government.
Thomas Jefferson

People try to live within their income so they can afford to pay taxes to a government that can't live within its income.
Robert Half

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
George Washington

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.
George Washington

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.
Thomas Jefferson

We have the best government that money can buy.
Mark Twain

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
George Washington
