  1. “It is not my intention to do away with government. It is, rather, to make it
    work — work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back.
    Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster
    productivity, not stifle it. It is no coincidence that our present troubles
    parallel and are proportionate to the intervention and intrusion in our lives
    that result from unnecessary and excessive growth of government. … We shall
    reflect the compassion that is so much a part of your makeup. How can we love
    our country and not love our countrymen, and loving them, not reach out a hand
    when they fall, heal them when they are sick, and provide opportunities to make
    them self-sufficient so they will be equal in fact and not just in theory? …
    We are a nation under God, and I believe God intended for us to be free. It
    would be fitting and good, I think, if on each Inauguration Day in future years
    it should be declared a day of prayer.”
    — Ronald Reagan
    (1911-2004) 40th US President

    “Government is not a solution to our problem,
    government is the problem.”
    — Ronald Reagan
    (1911-2004) 40th US President

    “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.”
    — Ronald Reagan
    (1911-2004) 40th US President

  2. “Since the federal constitution has removed all danger of our having a paper tender, our trade is advanced fifty percent. Our monied people can trust their cash abroad, and have brought their coin into circulation.”
    — The Pennsylvania Gazette
    December 16, 1789

    “As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible, avoiding occasions of expense by cultivating peace, but remembering also that timely disbursements to prepare for danger frequently prevent much greater disbursements to repel it, avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertion in time of peace to discharge the debts which unavoidable wars may have occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden which we ourselves ought to bear. The execution of these maxims belongs to your representatives, but it is necessary that public opinion should co-operate.”
    — George Washington

    “The chief duty of the National Government in connection with the currency of the country is to coin money and declare its value. Grave doubts have been entertained whether Congress is authorized by the Constitution to make any form of paper money legal tender. The present issue of United States notes has been sustained by the necessities of war; but such paper should depend for its value and currency upon its convenience in use and its prompt redemption in coin at the will of the holder, and not upon its compulsory circulation. These notes are not money, but promises to pay money. If the holders demand it, the promise should be kept.”
    — James A. Garfield
    (1831-1881) 20th President of the United States (1881)
