Nowhere Is the Worthy Stranger Made More Welcome Than Texas



“Death is lighter than a feather, but Duty is heavier than a mountain.” To the Blight

-Robert Jordan


“Think and let think.”

-John Wesley


“We are so concerned to flatter the majority that we lose sight of how very often it is necessary, in order to preserve freedom for the minority, let alone for the individual, to face that majority down.”

-William F. Buckley, Jr.


“Never look down on anyone unless you’re helping him up”

-Jesse Jackson

It is not my desire to give offense or interfere with any of your rights or wishes.”

-Ben McCulloch


“If nations are allowed to commit genocide with impunity, to hide their guilt in a camouflage of lies and denials, there is a real danger that other brutal regimes will be encouraged to attempt genocides. Unless we speak today of the Armenian Christian genocide and unless the Turkish Government recognizes this historical fact, we shall leave this century of unprecedented genocides with this blot on our consciences. U.S. High Commissioner to Turkey

-Admiral Mark. L. Bristol


“Nowhere is the worthy stranger made more welcome than Texas.”

-Hiram Granbury

-Hillary Clinton

-Saint Griseus


“As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin’s artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.” House of Commons 2 June 1998

-Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin – Swan River 


“In its main features the Declaration of Independence is a spiritual document. It is a declaration not of material but spiritual conceptions. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man—these are not elements which we can see and touch. They are ideals. They have their source and their roots in religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. Unless the faith of the American people in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish. We cannot continue to enjoy the result if we neglect and abandon the cause. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just power from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth and their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction cannot lay claim to progress.”

-Calvin Coolidge


“The man does not live who has power to couple my name successfully with the slightest taint of disloyalty to the Constitution.”

-John Breckinridge


“A little government involvement is just as dangerous as a lot – because the first leads inevitably to the second.”

-Harry Browne


“Where and when did freedom exist when the power of the sword and purse were given up from the people.”

-Patrick Henry


“Even before my father’s fathers they called us all rebels…”

-Thomas Petty


“Hitler clearly expected that American soldiers raised in a pacifist, “soft” democracy would ultimately wither under the assault of the German fighting men trained under his iron-fisted regime.”

-Stephen Ambrose


“In no other area of constitutional law does there exist a doctrine recognizing the preservation of cultural autonomy as a justification for limiting individual civil rights.” Sovereignty, Citizenship and the Indian, 15 Arizona Law Review, n. 36, 980 (1973)

-Kenneth W. Johnson 


“The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another.”

-Milton Friedman


“The Government is like a baby’s alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other.”

-Ronald Reagan


“Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

-James Madison


“All the fiery rhetoric of the Founders was directed at a “tyrant” who taxed his subjects at a rate of about three percent. Today, we in “the land of the free” are taxed at about 50 percent when you add federal, state, and local taxes. What kind of government would do this? A dictatorship would.”

-Doug Newman


“Lassitude and vacillation now would mean surrender… to further Federal intervention in local affairs and further Federal encroachment on the diminishing area of state authority. …The state government of Texas is neither cowardly nor impotent in dealing with state problems.”  Inaugural Address, January 20, 1959 

-Price Daniel, Governor of Texas


“It’s in the history books, the Holocaust. It’s just a phrase. And the truth is it happened yesterday. It happened to my mother. I never met my grandmothers or my grandfathers. They were all wiped up in the gas chambers of Nazi Germany.”

-Gene Simmons


“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”
