"Debt, both public and private, is the bane of liberty. It drives nations and men to poverty and despair. We should be fighting it like the plague it is, instead of passing it along to our children and grandchildren."
'Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.'
Tom Hoefling on Government:
"Just as 'good fences make for good neighbors,' good government is mainly about knowing where the legitimate boundaries are, and having the courage to defend those borders forcefully. This is true in terms of the defense of our territory, our security, and our national sovereignty, but it also applies to the sworn duty of all of those in government to equally protect the God-given, unalienable rights of each individual person, from their creation onward, their sacred obligation to stay well within the enumerated powers of our constitutions, and of the role legitimate government must play in balancing the competing rights and interests of the people, in order to establish justice."
