“The citizen is sovereign only when he can retain
and enjoy the fruits of his labor. If the government has first claim on his
property he must learn to genuflect before it. When the right of property is
abrogated, all the other rights of the individual are undermined, and to speak
of the sovereign citizen who has no absolute right to property is to talk
nonsense. It is like saying that the slave is free because he is allowed to do
anything he wants to do (even vote, if you wish) except to own what he
produces.”— Frank Chodorov, “The Income Tax: Root of All Evil”
"There is not a more important and
fundamental principle in legislation, than that the ways and means ought always
to face the public engagements; that our appropriations should ever go hand in
hand with our promises. To say that the United States should be answerable for
twenty-five millions of dollars without knowing whether the ways and means can
be provided, and without knowing whether those who are to succeed us will think
with us on the subject, would be rash and unjustifiable. Sir, in my opinion, it
would be hazarding the public faith in a manner contrary to every idea of
prudence." - James Madison, Speech
in Congress, 1790

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppresion; for if he violates this duty he estabalishes a precedent that will reach to himself." -Thomas Paine, Common Sense 1776
