Another Quote Worth Thinking About

Posted by The_Chef On 2:49 PM 1 comments

"In a country like the United States, where the right to property is placed above the law, there the sole function of the public police is to safeguard this natural right, each person can in full confidence dedicate his capital and his labor to production. He does not have to fear that his plans and calculations will be upset from one instant to another by the legislature."
-Frédéric Bastiat
