Wise Words for Government

The government is like a baby’s alimentary canal: A happy appetite at one end, and no responsibility at the other. Ronald Reagan

The only difference between the tax man and a taxidermist is that a taxidermist leaves the skin. Mark Twain

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. Thomas Jefferson

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity, is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself by the handle. Winston Churchill

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul. George Bernard Shaw

Government’s view on the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it. Ronald Reagan
