T.B.I.M. Humor: Independence Day Edition

American Wisdom
  • We must hang together, gentlemen...else, we shall most assuredly hang separately. ~ Benjamin Franklin (upon signing the Declaration of Independence)
  • Be civil to all; sociable to many; familiar with few; friend to one; enemy to none.~ Benjamin Franklin
  • It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them. Mark Twain
  • We in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate. ~ Thomas Jefferson
  • Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide. ~ John Adams
  • As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality. ~ George Washington
  • On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does. ~ Will Rogers
