2009 Liberal Jackass Quotes of the Year - #1
"We are not asking people to trust us, we are asking people to trust government."
- America's Health Insurance Plans sounds like a group supporting health care companies, but in reality it is bent on government overtaking, or at least hyper-regulating, private health care companies.
**"Trust government"? Uhhhhh, surely you jest!
"There is one safeguard known generally to the wise, which is an advantage and security to all, but especially to democracies as against despots. What is it? Distrust." - Demosthenes
"Distrust" what? Distrust government! A universal concept since the time of Demosthenes and the ancient Greeks; and surely long before then as well...We'd be absolute fools to go against this long held maxim in our time, and if do so we will surely succumb to President Washington's great fear: "Government is not reason. Government is not eloquence. It is force. And, like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington
2009 had many Liberal Jackass Quotes, but any quote which asks the American people "to trust government" is going to find its way to the top...Congratulations Karen Ignagni.**
