Wisdom of the Month
“Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude."
--Alexis de Tocqueville
De Tocqueville warned:
“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
