“I happen to appreciate quotes, to me they represent the wisdom and vision of those much wiser and more eloquent then I could ever hope to be”.
Dennis J. Edwards / Founder / Texas Conservatives
“The Constitution states ‘we the people’, not ‘we the parties, Republican and Democrat’. The will of the people has long been usurped by the will and influence of the parties and the money they control.
We the people are today challenged to take the necessary steps to fix our electoral and governmental processes, removing from them forever all influences of money; in not taking these steps we WILL lose our Republic; our very freedom”
Sheri E. Edwards / Texas Conservatives
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
Samuel Adams, 1776
“Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.”
“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. … God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion; what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787
