FF Quotes:

From our (founding federal) patriarchs

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
— President Abraham Lincoln

"As we must account for every idle word, so must we account for every idle silence."
— Benjamin Franklin

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
— President George Washington

interesting... do you agree with these? I think the truth of the first one is debatable.

I think I agree with it now....but back then it might have been a bit far-fetched.

I definitely agree with Washington, and I think that too many people see the feds as 'big brother' (like it wants them too) and too few see it as the raging, all-consuming forest fire that it REALLY is.
