GREAT TRUTHS

    Congress. But then I repeat
    myself. -- Mark Twain

    pay Paul can always depend on
    the support of Paul. -- George

    great debt to his fellow man,
    which debt he proposes to pay off

    transfer of money from poor
    people in rich countries to rich

    government is like giving whiskey
    and car keys to teenage boys.

      BastiatFrench economist(1801-1850)

11. Government's view of the
      economy could be summed up
      in a few short phrases: If it

      moving, regulate it. And if it
      stops moving, subsidize it.
      --Ronald Reagan (1986)

      the government and report the
      facts. -- Will Rogers
