"I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt
as the greatest danger to be feared."
February 21st, 2013
Every American Taxpayer Now "Owes" "The
(federal) State" $146,254, every citizen $52,448.
"Nothing is so well calculated to produce a death-like torpor in the country
as an extended system of taxation and a great national debt."
~ William Cobbett

There May Be No More condescending observation on taxation than one made by
Franklin D. Roosevelt: "Our national debt after all is an internal debt
owed not only by the Nation but to the Nation."
People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators - or other
public officials within These United States of America, to cause any citizen
to be drawn into an obligation to assume responsibility for public debt for
reasons other than to defend these United States. They prohibit government
from imposing financial risk on them and their posterity.
