I don't have anything very profound to say about President's Day, so I think maybe I'll just let some of our former presidents do the talking for me.
"Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves." -- Ronald Reagan
"The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission." -- John F. Kennedy
"A government for the people must depend for its success on the intelligence, the morality, the justice, and the interest of the people themselves." -- Grover Cleveland
