It's about food. Itís about your home. Itís about your life. The government is worried about all of the above. All Iím saying is you should be worried theyíre worried. Hereís why: Theyíre telling you that you canít take care of yourself. You canít be trusted with what you put in your mouth or what you sign on the mortgage dotted line. So theyíll tell you what to put in your mouth and theyíll save you from what you signed on that dotted line. Does anyone see a trend here? Personal responsibility has now become government responsibility

Neil Cavuto

Thousands of men breathe, move, and live; pass off the stage of life and are heard of no more. Why? They did not a particle of good in the world; and none were blest by them, none could point to them as the instrument of their redemption; not a line they wrote, not a word they spoke, could be recalled, and so they perished--their light went out in darkness, and they were not remembered more than the insects of yesterday. Will you thus live and die, O man immortal? Live for something

Money is the great leveler.

MARC COOPER

Personally, I'm in favor of democracy, which means that the central institutions of society have to be under popular control. Now, under capitalism, we can't have democracy by definition. Capitalism is a system in which the central institutions of society are in principle under autocratic control. Thus, a corporation or an industry is, if we were to think of it in political terms, fascist; that is, it has tight control at the top and strict obedience has to be establishedat every level--there's little bargaining, a little give and take,but the line of authority is perfectly straightforward. Just as I'm opposed to political fascism, I'm opposed to economic fascism. I think that until the major institutions of society are under the popular control of participants and communities, it's pointless to talk about democracy.

Noam Chomsky
