Wednesday Quotable

Some great quotes that give you a little pause with this giant spending bill that will probably be passed.  I’m not taking a position, but I just want to put this out for thought.

The Social Contract is nothing more or less than a vast conspiracy of human beings to lie to and humbug themselves and one another for the general good. Lies are the mortar that bind the savage individual man into the social masonry.
– H.G. Wells

Fear is the foundation of most governments.
– John Adams

“Fiat justitia, pereat coelum.” (Let justice be done, though heaven fall.)
-John Quincy Adams
