Birthplace of Independent Conservationism
"Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is
but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer or
are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country
without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the
means by which we suffer." --Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
Just imagine... this "knuckle dragging Neanderthal independent conservative" reading, and actually understanding, Thomas Paine. Who would have thought?
So progressives, what is your excuse?
