To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one half the wars of the world.

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

Thomas Jefferson, quoted in The Journal, a Summit Ministries newsletter; March, 2009
