Quote of the Day (3.11.14)

“Government should protect you and me from those who would do us harm, threaten our rights, and take away our civil liberties….It is not the proper role of government to manage our daily lives, decide what is best for our families, impose values on our communities and institutions, or determine winners and losers in the marketplace. While it is the duty of government to protect us from external threats and sometimes one another, it is not the role of government to protect us from ourselves. And it is certainly not the proper role of government to intervene in the affairs of other sovereign nations simply because we don’t approve of them or somehow believe we should shape them in our own image.”

– – Gary Johnson Seven Principles of Good Government
