A quote I have had on my web site since the Clinton years. Appropriate again for our times. From an old member at FreeRepublic.com:
“On the path towards the Rule of Men and away from the tranquility of the Rule of Law, the historical trap has been for good citizens to call upon stricter and stricter government, followed by stronger and stronger government, until government itself becomes so overbearing that it becomes more of the enemy than the anarchy from the Rule of Men.
As the olde maps used to cite: ‘Here there be dragons.'” ~ Southack
