Alexis de Tocqueville

The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.

A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.

America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.

Alexis de Tocqueville, French Historian & Political scientist 1805-1859
