Powerful thoughts as we approach the upcoming legislative session
I ran across this, and they're powerful thoughts as we get ready to start another legislative session:
"For in a Republic, who is 'the country?'
Is it the Government which is for the moment in the saddle?
Why, the Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong,and decide who is a patriot and who isn't.
Its function is to obey orders, not originate them."
- Mark Twain
