"These institutions are no longer schools. They are government indoctrination centers, owned and operated by government and staffed by government employees who have every reason to teach dependency on government and no reason to produce a generation of children who have learned how to depend on themselves. The single most prevalent form of child abuse in this country is the act of sending a child to a government school. We worry incessantly about the separation of church and state. We would do well to devote half as much attention to the separation of government and education."  Neal Boortz

"Deep within their hearts every single parent in this country who has the true interests of their children at heart knows that they are doing their children a great disservice by sending them to the government to be educated. They know that they are short-changing their children and exposing them to an atmosphere permeated with mindless political-correctness, union politics and government indoctrination. These parents (am I talking about you?) feel guilty for not making the sacrifices required to get their children out of the clutches of government and into a private school for their education."  Neal Boortz

"There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism...A hyphenated American is not an American at all. Americanism is a matter of the spirit, and of the soul. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans...each preserving its separate nationality. The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American."  Teddy Roosevelt

"It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag."  Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, Sergeant, USMC

"How can there possibly be liberty and justice for all, when, in the name of justice, people claim rights to income, food, housing, education, health care, transportation, ad infinitum? We can't. Positive rights to receive such things, absent an obligation to earn them, must violate others' liberty, by taking some of their income without their consent.
