This quote is exactly what the US was founded on...life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is not a political statement, just realistic truth. History has proven that when a society relies on government to provide for their needs, democracy will cease to exist. Once government takes a foothold in any piece of the private sector it is impossible to remove it. It becomes a cancer on democracy. Thomas Jefferson said: "A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuit of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the good bread it has earned--this is the sum of good government. To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
