Oliver Wendell Holmes

Abraham Lincoln
The chief foundations of all states... are good laws and good arms. And as there cannot be good laws where there are not good arms... where there are good arms there must be good laws...
Niccolo Machiavelli
The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon
George Washington
The principles of a free constitution are irrecoverably lost, when the legislative power is nominated by the executive
Edward Gibbon
The United States Constitution has proven itself the most marvelously elastic compilation of rules of government ever written
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The United States has been declared under martial law...All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.
Jello Biafra
