Benjamin Franklin : “People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both”

Other Franklin quotes :

A great Empire, like a great Cake, is most easily diminished at the Edges.

I think all the heretics I have known have been virtuous men

’tis his honesty that has brought upon him the character of heretic.

I’ve lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing Proofs I see of this Truth — That God governs in the Affairs of Men

    We’re stuck with him for 2 more years. But America wanted him—though they regret it now. I’d say people people are sheep but why insult sheep?

    From a more contemporary figure:

        yes but the laws signed by a president stay laws even after their term has ended. All simple minded people are quick to blame Obama because they are simple minded and simple minded people never look beyond the surface of things. People often mistake the presidents power for what it is. He can only do so much.
