The way out of our economic malaise is lighted by some tried and true principles.
“I heard those speakers at that other convention saying, “we won the Cold War” — and I couldn’t help wondering, just who exactly do they mean by “we”?

You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.””
