Great Quotations

Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency.
These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.

John Adams, 2nd President of the United States (1735-1826)

It doesn't require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires to people's minds.

Samuel Adams (1722 - 1803)

"There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty."

John Adams, 2nd President of the United States (1735-1826)

"The people are the masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it"

Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865), 16th President of the United States

"Israel controls the United States Senate. Around 80 percent are completely in support of Israel; anything Israel wants it gets. Jewish influence in the House of Representatives is even greater."

J. William Fulbright (1905-1995), United States Senator

"Power confuses itself with virtue and tends also to take itself for omnipotence."

United States Senator J. William Fulbright (1905-1995)

"The biggest lesson I learned from Vietnam is not to trust our own government statements. I had no idea until then that you could not rely on them."

United States Senator J. William Fulbright (1905-1995)

"The price of empire is America's soul, and that price is too high."

United States Senator J. William Fulbright (1905-1995)

"The citizen who criticizes his country is paying it an implied tribute."

United States Senator J. William Fulbright (1905-1995)

"I've never seen a President -- I don't care who he is -- stand up to them.  It just boggles the mind.  They always get what they want.  The Israelis know what is going on all the time.  I got to the point where I wasn't writing anything down.  If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would RISE UP IN ARMS.  Our citizens certainly don't have any idea what goes on."

Thomas H. Moorer (1912 - 2004) Admiral, US Navy & Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff
