Quote of the Day – 2012-06-06

From DaddyBear:

[A] healthy distrust of those who would like to hold power is a good thing.

We elect people to positions of power, in the hopes that they will work in our best interests and the best interests of the country as a whole. But they are only human, and they are humans who have deliberately sought power, whatever their reasons may be. History has shown us again and again that those who seek out power are very frequently not worthy of the trust and responsibility that goes with that power.

But for them to do their jobs, some trust is necessary. So, to that extent, I say “Trust but verify.” And if they break that trust, be absolutely and totally unforgiving. Kick ’em out, make sure the whole world knows why you’re kicking them out, and do it as soon as possible.

Nothing else will let us maintain what liberty we have left, or regain the liberty we have lost.
