Walter E. Williams Quote

“The bottom line is that we've become a nation of thieves, a value rejected by our founders. James Madison, the father of our Constitution, was horrified when Congress appropriated $15,000 to help French refugees. He said, "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." Tragically, today's Americans would run Madison out of town on a rail.”

Tragically, today's patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land would run any and all lovers of law, justice, personal responsibility, freedom and liberty out of town on a rail.

I'd vote for Water Williams or Thomas Sowell for president in a minute. I wouldn't care who was running against them.

I fully concur with you jim k. Walter Williams has been a great and wise mentor for all of us who wish to keep putting one brain cell in front of the other.
