Wise words from Freedom Watch

Freedom Watch has a great daily email that is loaded with insight. Consider these quotes:

"The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. School days, I believe, are the unhappiest in the whole span of human existence. They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks, new and unpleasant ordinances, and brutal violations of common sense and common decency."

- H.L. Mencken

“Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women. When it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it."

Judge Learned Hand

"The Republicans are doing most of the things that were once called liberal. They spend recklessly, ignore constitutional limitations, increase government power, create new federal programs, you name it - only they now call these liberal sins conservative virtues."

- Columnist Joseph Sobran
