Quote of the Day


Nothing can destroy a government more quickly than its failure to observe its own laws, or worse, its disregard of the charter of its own existence.

I always liked the line from "Last of the Mohicans"

"When they no longer follow their own laws then all they have over me is tyranny, and I refuse to live under that yoke."

One of my favorite quotes but ya know I am not even sure it's in the book. It was in the movie but I read the book so many years before seeing the movie and I was much younger.
