“I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for public charity. [To approve this measure] would be contrary to the letter and spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded.” – President Franklin Piece (1804-1869)

“The prime feature of political decision-making is that it’s a zero-sum game. One person’s gain is of necessity another person’s loss. As such, political allocation of resources is conflict-enhancing, while market allocation is conflict-reducing. The greater the number of decisions made in the political arena, the greater the potential for conflict.” – economist Walter E. Williams

“Often, in politics, it doesn’t matter what the facts are. What matters is how well you make your case to the voting public.” – economist Thomas Sowell
