Yes, the president should resign. He has lied to the American people, time and time again, and betrayed their trust. He is no longer an effective leader. Since he has admitted guilt, there is no reason to put the American people through an impeachment. He will serve absolutely no purpose in finishing out his term; the only possible solution is for the President to save some dignity and resign. William Jefferson Clinton
Arkansas Democrat Gazette, 1974
If all that Americans want is security, they can go to prison. They’ll have enough to eat, a bed and a roof over their heads. But if an American wants to preserve his dignity and his equality as a human being, he must not bow his neck to any dictatorial government. Dwight D. Eisenhower
1949 (34th President of the United States, 1890-1969)

It’s more the way it is now than it’s ever been.
Pattern Recognition, 2003 p 180, quoting Dwight David Eisenhower
Individuality is the aim of political liberty. By leaving the citizen as much freedom of action and of being as comports with order and the rights of others, the institutions render him truly a freeman. He is left to pursue his means of happiness in his own manner. James Fenimore Cooper
American novelist 1789-1851
Politicians never accuse you of ‘greed’ for wanting other people’s money — only for wanting to keep your own money. Joseph Sobran

A good lie will have traveled half way around the world while the truth is putting on her boots. Mark Twain
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910)
The price of freedom is the willingness to do sudden battle, anywhere, at any time, and with utter recklessness. Robert A. Heinlein
The Puppet Masters
Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.

More than 200 years after the patriots fired that first shot heard Ãround the word, one revolutionary idea still burns in the hearts of men and women everywhere: A society where man is not beholden to government; government is beholden to man. Ronald Reagan
