“Let me say a word here that may sound political.  I hope not, because I believe it’s moral and biblical.  You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it.  You don’t multiply wealth by dividing it.  Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn’t first take from somebody else.

Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving.  The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don’t have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don’t get to enjoy the fruit of their labor.”
– Dr. Adrian Rogers Ten Secrets for a Successful Family:  A Perfect 10 for Homes that Win 1996

“Don’t ever invest in something you don’t understand.”
– Warren Buffet

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety”
-Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

“Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.”
-Abraham Lincoln, Remarks to a Committee of New York Workingman, March 24, 1864

“We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough, we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much”
– Ronald Reagan, Address to National Association of Realtors, March 28, 1982

“We have to keep in mind we are a nation under God, and if we ever forget that, we’ll be just a nation under.”
– Ronald Reagan, May 23, 1983

“The voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”
The voice of truth says, “This is for My glory”
– Casting Crowns, Voice of Truth

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.
– Edward R. Murrow

    Wow! What a siteyou have here. You have a real knack for making a blog readable and easy on the eyes. Some sites look like train wrecks, but not this one – it’s a pleasure to read. I am a big fan of Bradley Hathaway – his spoken word really move me. Always nice to read another fan’s perspective. I don’t have time to read all the information you have right now, I found this site while I was looking for something else on Google, but I’ve bookmarked your homepage and will check back soon to see the latest news. What is your favorite song of Bradley’s? His art is so inspiring. Do you know anyone else like him performing today? Please take a look at my site at http://www.TheBradley.net – I have a lot of stuff about Bradley as well as some things by SCC and Casting Crowns. Have a good week!
