    My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

    Interesting, must be the reason that if there are 20 eyewitnesses to an incident there are 20 different descriptions of the event.

    I think this only proves that 75% of people walk around in condition white.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    This reminds me of some of my co-workers. I hate to share this part, but I'm in law enforcement.
