When taxes are too high, those who toil go without.

When the government is too intrusive, people lose their Freedom.

When the people lose their freedom, the people rebel.

When the government makes life burdensome, the people do not fear death.

Oppression NEVER achieves its intended results.

A Government that Acts for the people’s benefit trusts them and leaves them alone.
