The American learns about the law by participating in the making of it. He teaches himself about the forms of government by governing. He watches the great work of society being done every day before his eyes and, in a sense, by his hand.
In the United States, all of education is directed toward politics. In Europe, its principal purpose is to prepare people for private life. Citizens take part in public affairs too seldom to prepare them for it in advance.
Alexis De Tocqueville Law And Government Sayings By Alexis De Tocqueville: The American learns about the law by participating in the making of it. He teaches
Any politico who's afraid of his constituents being armed, should be. Leaders of the anti-gun movement (for the most part, politicians who enthusiastically advocate confiscatory taxation and government control of everything) realize that a populace is much easier to herd, loot and dispose of if it has been stripped of its weapons. The naked fraud and transparent fascism of victim disarmament must be eradicated through the repeal of all gun laws at every level of government.L. Neil Smith Law And Government Sayings By L. Neil Smith: Any politico who's afraid of his constituents being armed, should be. Leaders of the anti-gun
How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.Orson Scott Card Law And Government Sayings By Orson Scott Card: How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only
accountable government does not come through elections. It comes through respect for law, through public spirit and through a culture of confession. ToRoger Scruton Law And Government Sayings By Roger Scruton: accountable government does not come through elections. It comes through respect for law, through public
By what right does the law force me to conform to the social plans of Mr. Mimerel, Mr. de Melun, Mr. Thiers, or Mr. Louis Blanc? If the law has a moral right to do this, why does it not, then, force these gentlemen to submit to my plans? Is it logical to suppose that nature has not given me sufficient imagination to dream up a utopia also? Should the law choose one fantasy among many, and put the organized force of government at its service only?Frederic Bastiat Law And Government Sayings By Frederic Bastiat: By what right does the law force me to conform to the social plans of
United States Government needs to acknowledge and respect our sovereignty, treaties, traditional Native American values, and our human rights as a people, which under the law as written we deserve, and which should be protected.Leonard Peltier Law And Government Sayings By Leonard Peltier: United States Government needs to acknowledge and respect our sovereignty, treaties, traditional Native American values,
The proprietor, the robber, the hero, the sovereign - for all these titles are synonymous - imposes his will as law, and suffers neither contradiction nor control; that is, he pretends to be the legislative and the executive power at once ... [and so] property engenders despotism ... That is so clearly the essence of property that, to be convinced of it, one need but remember what it is, and observe what happens around him. Property is the right to use and abuse ... if goods are property, why should not the proprietors be kings, and despotic kings - kings in proportion to their facultes bonitaires? And if each proprietor is sovereign lord within the sphere of his property, absolute king throughout his own domain, how could a government of proprietors be any thing but chaos and confusion?Pierre-Joseph Proudhon Law And Government Sayings By Pierre-Joseph Proudhon: The proprietor, the robber, the hero, the sovereign - for all these titles are synonymous
How odd that Americans, and not just their presidents, have come to think of their Constitution as something separable from the government it's supposed to constitute. In theory, it should be as binding on rulers as the laws of physics are on engineers who design bridges; in practice, its axioms have become mere options. Of course engineers don't have to take oaths to respect the law of gravity; reality gives them no choice. Politics, as we see, makes all human laws optional for politicians.Joseph Sobran Law And Government Sayings By Joseph Sobran: How odd that Americans, and not just their presidents, have come to think of their
In a sense, I am a moralist, insofar as I believe that one of the tasks, one of the meanings of human existence - the source of human freedom - is never to accept anything as definitive, untouchable, obvious, or immobile. No aspect of reality should be allowed to become a definitive and inhuman law for us. We have to rise up against all forms of power - but not just power in the narrow sense of the word, referring to the power of a government or of one social group over another: these are only a few particular instances of power. Power is anything that tends to render immobile and untouchable those things that are offered to us as real, as true, as good.Michel Foucault Law And Government Sayings By Michel Foucault: In a sense, I am a moralist, insofar as I believe that one of the
Besides a happy policy as to civil government, it is necessary to institute a system of law and jurisprudence founded in justice, equity, and public right.Ezra Stiles Law And Government Sayings By Ezra Stiles: Besides a happy policy as to civil government, it is necessary to institute a system
By nature's law, every man has a right to seize and retake by force his own property taken from him by another, by force of fraud. Nor is this natural right among the first which is taken into the hands of regular government after it is instituted. It was long retained by our ancestors. It was a part of their common law, laid down in their books, recognized by all the authorities, and regulated as to circumstances of practice.Thomas Jefferson Law And Government Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: By nature's law, every man has a right to seize and retake by force his
David Cameron has already said, and I have said, that a Conservative government would be giving the security agencies and law enforcement agencies the powers that they need to ensure that they are keeping up to date as people communicate with data.Theresa May Law And Government Sayings By Theresa May: David Cameron has already said, and I have said, that a Conservative government would be
If our language and culture are not passed on to immigrants, where will they learn to value integrity in government and the rule of law?Paul Craig Roberts Law And Government Sayings By Paul Craig Roberts: If our language and culture are not passed on to immigrants, where will they learn
The states have authority to interpret the Constitution, enforce it, and protect the people from violations of it by the federal government In the first place, there is not a syllable in the plan under consideration which directly empowers the national courts to construe the laws according to the spirit of the Constitution, or which gives them any greater latitude in this respect than may be claimed by the courts of every State.Alexander Hamilton Law And Government Sayings By Alexander Hamilton: The states have authority to interpret the Constitution, enforce it, and protect the people from
Plato argued that good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will always find a way around law. By pretending that procedure will get rid of corruption, we have succeeded only in humiliating honest people and provided a cover of darkness and complexity for the bad people. There is a scandal here, but it's not the result of venal bureaucrats.
(1994) p. 99
Philip K. Howard Law And Government Sayings By Philip K. Howard: Plato argued that good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly,
Although the natural rights inherent in our( Constitutional) regime are adequate to the solution of this ( minority) problem ... the equal protection of the law did not protect a man from contempt and hatred as a Jew, an Italian or a Black" ... " 'Openness' was designed to provide a respectable place for those groups or minorities
to wrest respect from those who were disposed to give it
This breaks the delicate balance between majority and minority in Constitutional thought. In such a perspective where there is no common good, minorities are no longer problematic and the protection of them emerges as THE central function of government.
Allan Bloom Law And Government Sayings By Allan Bloom: Although the natural rights inherent in our( Constitutional) regime are adequate to the solution of
There exists a limit to the force even the most powerful may apply without destroying themselves. Judging this limit is the true artistry of government. Misuse of power is the fatal sin. The law cannot be a tool of vengeance, never a hostage, nor a fortification against the martyrs it has created. You cannot threaten any individual and escape the consequences.Frank Herbert Law And Government Sayings By Frank Herbert: There exists a limit to the force even the most powerful may apply without destroying
It is contended by many that ours is a Christian government, founded upon the Bible, and that all who look upon the book as false or foolish are destroying the foundation of our country. The truth is, our government is not founded upon the rights of gods, but upon the rights of men. Our Constitution was framed, not to declare and uphold the deity of Christ, but the sacredness of humanity. Ours is the first government made by the people and for the people. It is the only nation with which the gods have had nothing to do. And yet there are some judges dishonest and cowardly enough to solemnly decide that this is a Christian country, and that our free institutions are based upon the infamous laws of Jehovah.Robert G. Ingersoll Law And Government Sayings By Robert G. Ingersoll: It is contended by many that ours is a Christian government, founded upon the Bible,
My mom was the first African-American woman to graduate from the University of Chicago Law School, in 1946. She had leadership roles in the law, in government and the corporate world. She was a great role model in that she felt anything was possible.John W. Rogers Jr. Law And Government Sayings By John W. Rogers Jr.: My mom was the first African-American woman to graduate from the University of Chicago Law
Our First Amendment rights are not given to us by the government but are rights we inherently possess. The government cannot use subsequent amendments to limit First Amendment rights. The Free Exercise Clause is both an individual and a collective liberty protecting a right to worship God according to the dictates of conscience. Therefore, we strongly support the freedom of Americans to act in accordance with their religious beliefs, not only in their houses of worship, but also in their everyday lives.Republican Party Law And Government Sayings By Republican Party: Our First Amendment rights are not given to us by the government but are rights
The government can always rescue the markets or interfere with contract law whenever it deems convenient with little or no apparent cost. (Investors believe this now and, worse still, the government believes it as well. We are probably doomed to a lasting legacy of government tampering with financial markets and the economy, which is likely to create the mother of all moral hazards. The government is blissfully unaware of the wisdom of Friedrich Hayek: "The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.")Seth Klarman Law And Government Sayings By Seth Klarman: The government can always rescue the markets or interfere with contract law whenever it deems
We have investigative staff who are charged by law and this committee under the Constitution of the United States has a responsibility, taxpayers' money, and an agency which we fund from the government, they bought weapons, we believe and we think that - I don't know who did what.John Mica Law And Government Sayings By John Mica: We have investigative staff who are charged by law and this committee under the Constitution
A righteous government is of all the most to be wished for,Bearing of blessing and good fortune in the highest.Guided by the law of Truth, supported by dedication and zeal,It blossoms into the Best of Order, a Kingdom of Heaven!To effect this I shall work now and ever more.Zoroaster Law And Government Sayings By Zoroaster: A righteous government is of all the most to be wished for,Bearing of blessing and
Since the beginning of time there have been people who see themselves as being above the law. To them the laws don't apply. These people often hold positions
in government and in the corporate world. Does a similar mentality exist within the casino world?
You betcha!
John-Talmage Mathis Law And Government Sayings By John-Talmage Mathis: Since the beginning of time there have been people who see themselves as being above
Undocumented immigrants produced $1.58 billion in state revenues, which exceeded the $1.16 billion in state services they received. However, local governments bore the burden of $1.44 billion in uncompensated health care costs and local law enforcement costs not paid for by the state,Carole Keeton Law And Government Sayings By Carole Keeton: Undocumented immigrants produced $1.58 billion in state revenues, which exceeded the $1.16 billion in state
Mexico is a lawless place. I don't care what the UN says, or what the State Department travel advisories tell you. The fact is that Mexico, as a whole, is a narco-state run by powerful regional cartels, with a hollow and largely irrelevant central government that is nothing more than window-dressing to appease the international community. Freedom is for those who can afford it, law is for sale, and what is fair is determined by who is most powerful. That's the reality of Mexico. Cancun, Playa, Cabo, Puerto Vallarta- they are all much better than the interior of Mexico, but that is only because their survival depends on a steady flow of tourists with money to burn. To protect that, the government does a good job maintaining the appearance of western-style law and order through the direct threat of massive military intervention. Underneath it all, those places are not much different from the rest of Mexico.Tucker Max Law And Government Sayings By Tucker Max: Mexico is a lawless place. I don't care what the UN says, or what the
There is no good government but what is republican. That the only valuable part of the British constitution is so; for the true idea of a republic is "an empire of laws, and not of men." That, as a republic is the best of governments, so that particular arrangement of the powers of society, or in other words, that form of government which is best contrived to secure an impartial and exact execution of the law, is the best of republics.John Adams Law And Government Sayings By John Adams: There is no good government but what is republican. That the only valuable part of
The U.S. doesn't recognize the laws of Cuba. They can kidnap anybody and bring them back to the States to face the so-called justice system. There's no telling what the U.S. government will do to me. I'm in constant danger; I guess I've gotten used to it.Assata Shakur Law And Government Sayings By Assata Shakur: The U.S. doesn't recognize the laws of Cuba. They can kidnap anybody and bring them
The clergy, by getting themselves established by law and in-grafted into the machine of government, have been a very formidable engine against the civil and religious rights of man.Thomas Jefferson Law And Government Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: The clergy, by getting themselves established by law and in-grafted into the machine of government,
Wherever the Government does not emanate ... from the people, the principle of the Government, the esprit de corps, the point of honour, in all those connected with it, and raised by it to privileges above the law and above humanity, will be hatred to the people.William Hazlitt Law And Government Sayings By William Hazlitt: Wherever the Government does not emanate ... from the people, the principle of the Government,
Revealingly, the central function of the Constitution as law
the supreme law
was to impose limitations not on the behavior of ordinary citizens but on the federal government. The government, and those who ran it, were not placed outside the law, but expressly targeted by it. Indeed, the Bill of Rights is little more than a description of the lines that the most powerful political officials are barred from crossing, even if they have the power to do so and even when the majority of citizens might wish them to do so.
Glenn Greenwald Law And Government Sayings By Glenn Greenwald: Revealingly, the central function of the Constitution as lawthe supreme lawwas to impose limitations not
I do verily believe that if the principle were to prevail of a common law being in force in the United States (which principle possesses the general government at once of all the powers of the state governments, and reduces us to a single consolidated government), it would become the most corrupt government on the earth.Thomas Jefferson Law And Government Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: I do verily believe that if the principle were to prevail of a common law
The internet has no government, no constitution, no laws, no rights, no police, no courts. Don't talk about fairness or innocence, and don't talk about what should be done. Instead, talk about what is being done and what will be done by the amorphous unreachable undefinable blob called the internet user base.Paul Vixie Law And Government Sayings By Paul Vixie: The internet has no government, no constitution, no laws, no rights, no police, no courts.
Jesus teaches the redistribution of wealth - as long as the transfer is voluntary. But he is adamantly opposed to the involuntary redistribution of wealth, because that violates the moral law of God and is profoundly wrong. His words to take care of the poor are not addressed to government, they are addressed to us.Bryan Fischer Law And Government Sayings By Bryan Fischer: Jesus teaches the redistribution of wealth - as long as the transfer is voluntary. But
You're too straight, you just don't understand these guys' priorities. They don't expect any law or justice from the U.S. government. They don't even expect the government to be sane. The whole federal system just detached itself from them and floated off into deep space. They think of the government as something like bad weather. It's something you just endure.Bruce Sterling Law And Government Sayings By Bruce Sterling: You're too straight, you just don't understand these guys' priorities. They don't expect any law
The government, for example, has determined that black people (somehow) have fewer abilities than white people, and, so, must be given certain preferences. Anyone acquainted with both black and white people knows this assessment is not only absurd but monstrous. And yet it is the law.David Mamet Law And Government Sayings By David Mamet: The government, for example, has determined that black people (somehow) have fewer abilities than white
Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns in to universal, rather than religion-specific, values ... it requires that their proposals be subject to argument and amenable to reason.
Now I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, to take one example, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God's will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.
Barack Obama Law And Government Sayings By Barack Obama: Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns in to universal, rather than religion-specific,
Nonetheless, by the time we arrive at the eighteenth century and the time of the founders, marriage and the family came to look very much as Aristotle had pictured it. In the previous centuries, Lutheran reforms had lodged marriage into the civil structure of society and made it more a concern of civil law,11 but, joined by Calvin, Protestantism retained parental control over the right of children to marry. John Locke, however, saw marriage as contracted political society, and thus his image of the family as a commonwealth made up of combined individuals parallel his image of the formation of the larger political commonwealth as well.12 Furthermore, Locke declares that parents are, "by the law of nature, under an obligation to preserve, nourish and educate" their children.13 Since government is instituted to enforce the laws of nature, Locke states that government should make laws that enforce "the security of the marriage bed.'14 WhatJean Bethke Elshtain Law And Government Sayings By Jean Bethke Elshtain: Nonetheless, by the time we arrive at the eighteenth century and the time of the
Government should enforce rule of law. It should enforce contracts, it should protect people bodily from being attacked by criminals. And when the government does those things, it is facilitating liberty. When it goes beyond those things, it becomes destructive to both human happiness and human liberty.Grover Norquist Law And Government Sayings By Grover Norquist: Government should enforce rule of law. It should enforce contracts, it should protect people bodily
The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing "God Bless America." No, no, no, God d*mn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God d*mn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God d*mn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.Jeremiah Wright Law And Government Sayings By Jeremiah Wright: The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then
In my considered opinion, salary is payment for goods delivered and it must conform to the law of supply and demand. If, therefore, the fixed salary is a violation of this law - as, for instance, when I see two engineers leaving college together and both equally well trained and efficient, and one getting forty thousand while the other only earns two thousand , or when lawyers and hussars, possessing no special qualifications, are appointed directors of banks with huge salaries - I can only conclude that their salaries are not fixed according to the law of supply and demand but simply by personal influence. And this is an abuse important in itself and having a deleterious effect on government service.Leo Tolstoy Law And Government Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: In my considered opinion, salary is payment for goods delivered and it must conform to
Equality, as understood by the American Founders, is the natural right of every individual to live freely under self-government, to acquire and retain the property he creates through his own labor, and to be treated impartially before a just law. Moreover, equality should not be confused with perfection, for man is also imperfect, making his application of equality, even in the most just society, imperfect. Otherwise, inequality is the natural state of man in the sense that each individual is born unique in all his human characteristics. Therefore, equality and inequality, properly comprehended, are both engines of liberty.Mark R. Levin Law And Government Sayings By Mark R. Levin: Equality, as understood by the American Founders, is the natural right of every individual to
We'd do well to remember that at the end of the day, the law doesn't defend us; we defend the law. And when it becomes contrary to our morals, we have both the right and the responsibility to rebalance it toward just ends.Edward Snowden Law And Government Sayings By Edward Snowden: We'd do well to remember that at the end of the day, the law doesn't
Unconditional love is like a contry of two with no laws and no government. Which is all fine if everyone is peaceful and law abiding. In the wrong hands, though, you got looting and crime sprees, and let me tell you, the people who demand unconditional love are usually the ones who will rob and pillage and then blame you because you left your door unlocked.Deb Caletti Law And Government Sayings By Deb Caletti: Unconditional love is like a contry of two with no laws and no government. Which
If the Government is going to intrude upon the sacred ground of the First Amendment and tell its citizens that their exercise of protected speech could land them in jail, the law imposing such a penalty must clearly define the prohibited speech not only for the potential offender but also for the potential enforcer.Ronald L. Buckwalter Law And Government Sayings By Ronald L. Buckwalter: If the Government is going to intrude upon the sacred ground of the First Amendment
The civil magistrate cannot function without some ethical guidance, without some standard of good and evil. If that standard is not to be the revealed law of God ... then what will it be? In some form or expression it will have to be the law of man (or men) - the standard of self-law or autonomy. And when autonomous laws come to govern a commonwealth, the sword is certainly wielded in vain, for it represents simply the brute force of some men's will against the will of other men.Greg L. Bahnsen Law And Government Sayings By Greg L. Bahnsen: The civil magistrate cannot function without some ethical guidance, without some standard of good and
And they are much more skeptical of the very idea of having immigration limits, whereas the public - again, independents and Democrats, as well as Republicans, although not necessarily all in the same proportions - have a much stronger sense of the American government and American law having responsibility to Americans specifically rather than to people around the world. So the polarization is up versus down, not really right versus left.Mark Krikorian Law And Government Sayings By Mark Krikorian: And they are much more skeptical of the very idea of having immigration limits, whereas
The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others. It has converted plunder into a right, in order to protect plunder. And it has converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense ... When, then, does plunder stop? It stops when it becomes more painful and more dangerous than labor.Frederic Bastiat Law And Government Sayings By Frederic Bastiat: The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish,
The basis for building a Christian society is evangelism and missions that lead to a widespread Christian revival, so that the great mass of earth's inhabitants will place themselves under Christ's protection, and then voluntarily use his covenantal laws for self-government. Christian reconstruction begins with personal conversion to Christ and self-government under God's law; then it spreads to others through revival; and only later does it bring comprehensive changes in civil law, when the vast majority of voters voluntarily agree to live under biblical blueprints.Gary North Law And Government Sayings By Gary North: The basis for building a Christian society is evangelism and missions that lead to a
Government cannot be religious and self-assertive at the same time. Religious experience needs a spontaneity which laws inevitably suppress. And you cannot govern without laws. Your laws eventually must replace morality, replace conscience, replace even the religion by which you think to govern. Sacred ritual must spring from praise and holy yearnings which hammer out a significant morality. Government, on the other hand, is a cultural organism particularly attractive to doubts, questions and contentions. I see the day coming when ceremony must take the place of faith and symbolism replaces morality.Frank Herbert Law And Government Sayings By Frank Herbert: Government cannot be religious and self-assertive at the same time. Religious experience needs a spontaneity
Government is defined as a right manner of disposing things so as to lead not to the form of the common good, as the jurists' texts would have said, but to an end which is 'convenient' for each of the things that are to governed. This implies a plurality of specific aims: for instance, government will have t ensure that the greatest possible quantity of wealth is produced, that the people are provided with sufficient means of subsistence, that the population in enabled to multiply, etc. There is a whole series of specific finalities, then, which become the objective of government as such. In order to achieve these various finalities, things be disposed - and this term, [i] dispose [/i], is important because with sovereignity the instrument that allowed it to achieve its aim - that is to say, obedience to the laws - was the law itself; law and sovereignity were absolutely inseparable.Michel Foucault Law And Government Sayings By Michel Foucault: Government is defined as a right manner of disposing things so as to lead not
On June 20, 1951, less than four weeks after the Homer case broke, Hoover escalated the FBI's Sex Deviates Program. The FBI alerted universities and state and local police to the subversive threat, seeking to drive homosexuals from every institution of government, higher learning, and law enforcement in the nation. The FBI's files on American homosexuals grew to 300,000 pages over the next twenty-five years before they were destroyed. It took six decades, until 2011, before homosexuals could openly serve in the United States military.Tim Weiner Law And Government Sayings By Tim Weiner: On June 20, 1951, less than four weeks after the Homer case broke, Hoover escalated
If once the people become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions.Thomas Jefferson Law And Government Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: If once the people become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress
It is a travesty, in my mind, for the state and local governments on the one hand to expect the Federal government to reimburse them for costs attributable to illegal immigrants, when on the other hand the State and local governments prohibit their own law enforcement and other officials from cooperating with the Immigration and Naturalization Service to locate or apprehend or expel illegal aliens.Alan K. Simpson Law And Government Sayings By Alan K. Simpson: It is a travesty, in my mind, for the state and local governments on the
If [drugs] didn't exist, our government would have to invent them, the better to enact laws aimed at keeping the citizens "sinless and obedient."Gore Vidal Law And Government Sayings By Gore Vidal: If [drugs] didn't exist, our government would have to invent them, the better to enact
The legislation of the government has been directed rather to the protection of the rights of money and property than to the best good of the citizen.Susette La Flesche Law And Government Sayings By Susette La Flesche: The legislation of the government has been directed rather to the protection of the rights
[T]he bill exceeds the rightful authority to which governments are limited by the essential distinction between civil and religious functions, and violates in particular the article of the Constitution of the United States which declares that Congress shall make no law respecting a religious establishment ... This particular church, therefore, would so far be a religious establishment by law, a legal force and sanction being given to certain articles in its constitution and administration.James Madison Law And Government Sayings By James Madison: [T]he bill exceeds the rightful authority to which governments are limited by the essential distinction
But people try love and because they are unconscious ... their longing is good, but their love is full of jealousy, full of possessiveness, full of anger, full of nastiness. Soon they destroy it. Hence for centuries they have depended on marriage. Better to start by marriage so that the law can protect you from destroying it. The society, the government, the court, the policeman, the priest, they will all force you to live in the institution of marriage, and you will be just a slave. If marriage is an institution, you are going to be a slave in it. Only slaves want to live in institutions.Rajneesh Law And Government Sayings By Rajneesh: But people try love and because they are unconscious ... their longing is good, but
Infidels construct their [124] theories from the supposed deductions of sciences, and reject the revealed word of God. They presume to pass sentence upon God's moral government; they despise his law and boast of the sufficiency of human reason. Then, "because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil." Ecclesiastes 8:11.Ellen G. White Law And Government Sayings By Ellen G. White: Infidels construct their [124] theories from the supposed deductions of sciences, and reject the revealed
If you already have the student loans or don't want to get a loan in the first place, look into the "underserved areas" programs. The government will pay for school or pay off your student loans if you will go to work in an underserved area. These areas are typically rural or inner-city areas. Most of these programs are for law and medicine. If you are in nursing, work a few years in an inner-city hospital with the less fortunate, and you will get a free education, courtesy of the federal government.Dave Ramsey Law And Government Sayings By Dave Ramsey: If you already have the student loans or don't want to get a loan in
There are times throughout history and it doesn't take long for either an American or a German, to think about times in the history of their country where the law provided the Government to do things which were not right.Edward Snowden Law And Government Sayings By Edward Snowden: There are times throughout history and it doesn't take long for either an American or
No government is lawful or innocent that does not recognize the moral law as the only universal law, and God as the Supreme Lawgiver and Judge, to whom nations in their national capacity, as well as individuals, are amenable.Charles Grandison Finney Law And Government Sayings By Charles Grandison Finney: No government is lawful or innocent that does not recognize the moral law as the
Certainly all those who have framed written constitutions contemplate them as forming the fundamental and paramount law of the nation, and consequently the theory of every such government must be, that an act of the legislature, repugnant to the constitution, is void.John Marshall Law And Government Sayings By John Marshall: Certainly all those who have framed written constitutions contemplate them as forming the fundamental and
Something that confirms all fears and many conspiracy theories about government is finding out what our elected representatives would put into law if they could.P. J. O'Rourke Law And Government Sayings By P. J. O'Rourke: Something that confirms all fears and many conspiracy theories about government is finding out what
A representative form of government rests nor more on political contributions than on those laws which regulate the descent and transmission of property.Daniel Webster Law And Government Sayings By Daniel Webster: A representative form of government rests nor more on political contributions than on those laws
It would seem, then, to be the part of political wisdom to found government on property; and to establish such distribution of property, by the laws which regulate its transmission and alienation, as to interest the great majority of society in the protection of the government.Daniel Webster Law And Government Sayings By Daniel Webster: It would seem, then, to be the part of political wisdom to found government on
The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law and particularly to deny him the judgement of his peers is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist.Winston S. Churchill Law And Government Sayings By Winston S. Churchill: The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge
If any one shall claim a power to lay and levy taxes on the people by his own authority and without such consent of the people, he thereby invades the fundamental law of property, and subverts the end of government.John Locke Law And Government Sayings By John Locke: If any one shall claim a power to lay and levy taxes on the people
People often of masterful intelligence, trained usually in law or economics or perhaps in political science, who have led their governments into disastrous decisions and miscalculations because they have no awareness whatever of the historical background, the cultural universe, of the foreign societies with which they have to deal.Michael Howard Law And Government Sayings By Michael Howard: People often of masterful intelligence, trained usually in law or economics or perhaps in political
I think it's a typical hidden agenda of the Liberal party ... They had the courts do it for them, they put the judges in they wanted, then they failed to appeal
failed to fight the case in court ... I think the federal government deliberately lost this case in court and got the change to the law done through the back door.
Stephen Harper Law And Government Sayings By Stephen Harper: I think it's a typical hidden agenda of the Liberal party ... They had the
A government must govern, must prescribe and enforce laws within its sphere or cease to be a government. Moreover, the individual must be independent and free within his own sphere or cease to be an individual. The fundamental question ... is now, and always will be through what adjustments, by what actions, these principles may be applied.Calvin Coolidge Law And Government Sayings By Calvin Coolidge: A government must govern, must prescribe and enforce laws within its sphere or cease to
The proposition is peace. Not peace through the medium of war; not peace to be hunted through the labyrinth of intricate and endless negotiations; not peace to arise out of universal discord, fomented from principle, in all parts of the empire; not peace to depend on the juridical determination of perplexing questions, or the precise marking the shadowy boundaries of a complex government. It is simple peace, sought in its natural course and in its ordinary haunts. It is peace sought in the spirit of peace, and laid in principles purely pacific.Edmund Burke Law And Government Sayings By Edmund Burke: The proposition is peace. Not peace through the medium of war; not peace to be
It is urged that the use of the masculine pronouns he, his, and him in all the constitutions and laws, is proof that only men were meant to be included in their provisions. If you insist on this version of the letter of the law, we shall insist that you be consistent and accept the other horn of the dilemma, which would compel you to exempt women from taxation for the support of the government and from penalties for the violation of laws. There is no she or her or hers in the tax laws, and this is equally true of all the criminal laws.Susan B. Anthony Law And Government Sayings By Susan B. Anthony: It is urged that the use of the masculine pronouns he, his, and him in
There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.Daniel Inouye Law And Government Sayings By Daniel Inouye: There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own
Going around this country, I have found a great hunger in America for spiritual revival; for a belief that law must be based on a higher law; for a return to traditions and values that we once had. Our government, in its most sacred documents - the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and all - speak of man being created, of a Creator; that we're a nation under God.Ronald Reagan Law And Government Sayings By Ronald Reagan: Going around this country, I have found a great hunger in America for spiritual revival;
Freedom, in a political context, means freedom from government coercion. It does not mean freedom from the landlord, from the employer, or freedom from the laws of nature which do not provide men with automatic prosperity. It means freedom from the coercive power of the state ' and nothing elseAyn Rand Law And Government Sayings By Ayn Rand: Freedom, in a political context, means freedom from government coercion. It does not mean freedom
I see nothing quite conclusive in the art of temporal government, But violence, duplicity and frequent malversation. King rules or barons rule: The strong man strongly and the weak man by caprice. They have but one law, to seize the power and keep it.Samuel Smiles Law And Government Sayings By Samuel Smiles: I see nothing quite conclusive in the art of temporal government, But violence, duplicity and
It is one thing to be subordinate to the laws, and another [for the Executive] to be dependent on the legislative body. The first comports with, the last violates, the fundamental principles of good government; and, whatever may be the forms of the Constitution, unites all power in the same hands.Alexander Hamilton Law And Government Sayings By Alexander Hamilton: It is one thing to be subordinate to the laws, and another [for the Executive]
The police state We now have well over 100,000 domestic federal law enforcement agents armed and ready to enforce the laws to "make everyone safe and secure." We also have our TSA "friends" at the airports protecting us with an army of over 50,000 bureaucrats. The Department of Homeland Security has more than 240,000 employees. The FBI has about 35,000 employees. Around 90,000 IRS employees enforce draconian tax laws that limit self-sufficiency, put people in fear, and are used as a political tool to help suppress dissenters to the empire. There are many thousands of others "making sure we're safe and secure from our foreign enemies" while our domestic enemies, including politicians, bureaucrats, and government profiteers, are ignored.Ron Paul Law And Government Sayings By Ron Paul: The police state We now have well over 100,000 domestic federal law enforcement agents armed

No branch of the law is of more importance to the counsellor, the statesman, or the citizen, than a thorough acquaintance with the Constitution and laws of the Federal Government, as they are administered and as they affect the rights of the people.Samuel Freeman Miller Law And Government Sayings By Samuel Freeman Miller: No branch of the law is of more importance to the counsellor, the statesman, or
As you sometimes swear by him that made you, I conclude your sentiments do not correspond with his, in that which is the basis of the doctrine you both agree in: and this makes it impossible to imagine whence this congruity between you arises. To grant that there is a supreme intelligence who rules the world and has established laws to regulate the actions of his creatures; and still to assert that man, in a state of nature, may be considered as perfectly free from all restraints of law and government, appears to a common understanding altogether irreconcilable.Alexander Hamilton Law And Government Sayings By Alexander Hamilton: As you sometimes swear by him that made you, I conclude your sentiments do not
With 28 million children eating lunch at school every day in the United States, I believe government has an obligation to ensure parents have some peace of mind when they send their children off to school in the morning, .. Since children are particularly vulnerable to foodborne illness, schools must be vigilant in their efforts to ensure that cafeterias are not putting children at risk. These changes in law will support parents who want to work with school principals and food-service directors to ensure a safe environment.Rosa DeLauro Law And Government Sayings By Rosa DeLauro: With 28 million children eating lunch at school every day in the United States, I

The Patriot Act was used against me in total contradiction to its stated purpose. Or perhaps it was the most logical use of the law, since it establishes a legal framework to crush free thinking and interrupt individual questioning of the government. It is the beginning of all dictatorship in America.Susan Lindauer Law And Government Sayings By Susan Lindauer: The Patriot Act was used against me in total contradiction to its stated purpose. Or
Before Admiral Guzzetti traveled to Washington to see Kissinger in October 1976, Hill had met him and told him that "murdering priests and dumping forty-seven bodies in the street in one day could not be seen in the context of defeating the terrorists quickly; on the contrary such acts were probably counterproductive. What the USG [United States Government] hoped was that the GOA [Government of Argentina] could soon defeat terrorists, yes, but as nearly as possible within the law." Even this admonition, which might be seen by some as containing a loophole or two, was considered too harsh by Kissinger. GuzzettiChristopher Hitchens Law And Government Sayings By Christopher Hitchens: Before Admiral Guzzetti traveled to Washington to see Kissinger in October 1976, Hill had met
The Obama administration came into Utah and said, 'We're not going to listen to what the U.S. Supreme Court said. 'We, the federal government, are going to recognize marriages in the state of Utah and Utah state law explicitly does not recognize as marriage,' and that was really, in my view, an abuse of power.Ted Cruz Law And Government Sayings By Ted Cruz: The Obama administration came into Utah and said, 'We're not going to listen to what
For any young democracy, the most difficult but important step is burying the legacy of tyranny and establishing an economy and a government and institutions that abide by the rule of law.

For in a government of laws and not of men, no man, however prominent or powerful, and no mob however unruly or boisterous, is entitled to defy a court of law. If this country should ever reach the point where any man or group of men by force or threat of force could long defy the commands of our court and our Constitution, then no law would stand free from doubt, no judge would be sure of his writ, and no citizen would be safe from his neighbors.John F. Kennedy Law And Government Sayings By John F. Kennedy: For in a government of laws and not of men, no man, however prominent or
Locke recognized that people in power would be tempted to "exempt themselves from the obedience to the Laws they make, and suit the Law, both in its making and its execution, to their own private Wish, and thereby come to have a distinct Interest from the rest of the Community, contrary to the end of Society and Government."99Steven Pinker Law And Government Sayings By Steven Pinker: Locke recognized that people in power would be tempted to "exempt themselves from the obedience
In fact, if law were restricted to protecting all persons, all liberties, and all properties; if law were nothing more than the organized combination of the individual's right to self-defense; if law were the obstacle, the check, the punisher of all oppression and plunder - is it likely that we citizens would then argue much about the extent of the franchise?Frederic Bastiat Law And Government Sayings By Frederic Bastiat: In fact, if law were restricted to protecting all persons, all liberties, and all properties;

As it stands today we have too many lawyers in government - many of whom are very smart and decent people - but they are not immune from acting like lawyers. Consequently, we have far too much regulatory legislation. Also, what do many lawyers learn in law school? They learn to win by hook or by crook; it doesn't matter how you fight as long as you win. Imagine a roomful of Democratic and Republican lawyers, each with one overriding goal to win, and this certainly helps one understand the distasteful partisan politics that characterizes Congress today.Ben Carson Law And Government Sayings By Ben Carson: As it stands today we have too many lawyers in government - many of whom
The freest government, if it could exist, would not be long acceptable, if the tendency of the laws were to create a rapid accumulation of property in a few hands, and to render the great mass of the population dependent and penniless.Daniel Webster Law And Government Sayings By Daniel Webster: The freest government, if it could exist, would not be long acceptable, if the tendency
Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible.Janice Rogers Brown Law And Government Sayings By Janice Rogers Brown: Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our
American taxpayers will be forced to foot the bill for the overwhelming costs of amnesty. Under current law, once 11 million illegal immigrants receive probationary status, they will immediately have access to federal benefits like Social Security and Obamacare coverage. If we thought we had a problem with government spending before, just wait.Lamar S. Smith Law And Government Sayings By Lamar S. Smith: American taxpayers will be forced to foot the bill for the overwhelming costs of amnesty.
Between democracy and rule of law There has always been a close historical association between the rise of democracy and the rise of liberal rule of law.32 As we saw in chapter 27, the rise of accountable government in England was inseparable from the defense of the Common Law. Extension of the rule of law to apply to wider circles of citizens has always been seen as a key component of democracy itself. This association has continued through the third-wave democratic transitions after 1975, where the collapse of Communist dictatorships led to both the rise of electoral democracy and the creation of constitutional governments protecting individuals' rights.Francis Fukuyama Law And Government Sayings By Francis Fukuyama: Between democracy and rule of law There has always been a close historical association between
Nixon clearly broke the law in the cover up of Watergate and hush money payments. That was all criminal activity. With these guys, we're not talking about the kind of common crimes that Nixon committed. I can't tell you whether they are technically breaking the law, but basically, the American government has been hijacked by neoconservatives. They are taking an awful lot of national security operations into the White House.Seymour Hersh Law And Government Sayings By Seymour Hersh: Nixon clearly broke the law in the cover up of Watergate and hush money payments.
..."extreme capitalism": the obsessive, uncritical penetration of the concept of the market into every aspect of American life, and the attempt to drive out every other institution, including law, art, culture, public education, Social Security, unions, community, you name it. It is the conflation of markets with populism, with democracy, with diversity, with liberty, and with choice---and so the denial of any form of choice that imposes limits on the market. More than that, it is the elimination of these separate concepts from our political discourse, so that we find ourselves looking to the stock market to fund retirement, college education, health care, and having forgotten that in other wealthy and developed societies these are rights, not the contingent outcomes of speculative games.
