I'm starting this off with quotes by Aaron Russo, http://russoforpresident.com/
QUOTES BY AARON RUSSO:
"If America is doing better, as the politicians tell us, why does it take two or more people to support a household, when before, one person could handle it?"
"Don’t pay too much attention to what government says, but pay extremely close attention to what they do."
"The American people are on a treadmill for financial survival."
"The security of America requires, and depends on, the willingness and the ability of 280 million Americans to provide for their own security and to come to the defense of their fellow Americans when the situation requires it."
"You own your life and the FDA has no right to limit your options as to how you choose to cure yourself."
OK contenders--let's see 'em!!
