  • “Those who trade liberty for security have neither.” ~ John Adams
  • The pun is mightier than the sword.
  • “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then they win you.”-Ghandi
  • I don’t mind you being rich; I mind you buying my government.
  • “A nation of sheep soon begets a government of wolves.” Edward R. Murrow
  • If you aren’t a vegetarian, you probably don’t know beans.
  • “It’s called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.”-George Carlin
