welcome back, ignorant douchebag fratboy...

Maistre, Joseph De, 1753-1821, French Diplomat, Philosopher:
Every country has the government it deserves.

Voltaire,, 1694-1778, French Historian, Writer:
The best government is a benevolent tyranny tempered by an occasional assassination.

Truman, Harry S., 1884-1972, Thirty-third President of the USA:
Whenever you have an efficient government, you have a dictatorship.

Washington, George, 1732-1799, First President of the USA:
Government is not reason and it is not eloquence. It is force! Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.

Adams, John, 1735-1826, Second President of the USA:
Fear is the foundation of most government.

Mencken, H. L., 1880-1956, American Editor, Author, Critic, Humorist:
Government is actually the worst failure of civilized man. There has never been a really good one, and even those that are most tolerable are arbitrary, cruel, grasping and unintelligent.

O'Rourke, P. J., 1947-, American Journalist:
Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
