One Citizen's Musings About Williston,

Vermont and our Nation




“Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.”

          Barry Goldwater

“The government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:  If it moves, tax it.  If it keeps moving, regulate it.  And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

          Ronald Reagan
