"I almost never read a borrowed book. I don't like to read borrowed books because I don't want to read a book without underlining things I want to remember. Since one doesn't underline someone else's book, I feel that if a book is worth reading, it is worth owning."
Boyd K. Packer
"Let us be sure, that those that come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith."
"Equality of opportunity is freedom; equality of outcome is repression."
It’s New Year’s Day again, and just for today, I’m going to pretend that everything is perfect.
I’m going to pretend that I’m a fabulous cook, that I’m back into my “real” clothes; I’m going to pretend that I’m a tidy housekeeper and I’m going to pretend that I’m a fabulous Constitutionalist and historian.
I’m even going to pretend that the world isn’t on fire.
Just for today.
May you have a Happy, Blessed and Prosperous New Year!

"Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. Knowing this, it is hard to explain those who even today would question the people's capacity for self-rule. Will they answer this: if no one among us is capable of governing himeself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?"
You are an Anti-government Gunslinger, also known as a libertarian conservative. You believe in smaller government, states’ rights, gun rights, and that, as Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”
