Quote of the Day

The history of governments: one man does something which is to bind another. A man who cannot be acquainted with me, taxes me; looking from afar at me, ordains that a part of my labors shall go to this or that whimsical end, not as I, but as he happens to fancy. Behold the consequence. Everywhere they think they get their money’s worth, except for these. Hence, the less government we have, the better, the fewer laws, the less confided power.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
