Quotes:

Government 'help' to business is just as disastrous as government persecution... the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.
View quotes by Ayn Rand

I have spent the better part of my adult life insisting that government be open... that government be accessible... and that government be held accountable to people who voted us into office.
View quotes by Roy Barnes

No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!
View quotes by Ronald Reagan

A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.
View quotes by Thomas Jefferson

View quotes by Richard Branson

View quotes by Michael Howard

I believe this is responsible government, not as some have called it 'Big Brother government' [on ID Cards]
View quotes by Tony Blair

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labour and bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.
View quotes by Thomas Jefferson

John Prescott has made the government look greedy and ridiculous. Labour is seen as the corrupt party. The government has been fulfilling the old rule that oppositions do not win elections, governments lose them.
View quotes by Lord Rees-Mogg

Good government could never be a substitute for government by the people themselves.
View quotes by Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman

China's idea of fair trade is government subsidies of its textile and apparel exports to the United States, currency manipulation, and forgiveness of loans by its government banks.

Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.
View quotes by Thomas Jefferson

Dullness in matters of government is a good sign, and not a bad one - in particular, dullness in parliamentary government is a test of its excellence, an indication of its success.
View quotes by Walter Bagehot

As a member of Congress, I believe it is the responsibility of those elected to represent the people at every level of government to ensure that our government works to ensure that every person who wants gainful employment has it.
View quotes by Leonard Boswell

Congress should recognise a government established under its auspices: there is no government in the rebel states, save the authority of Congress.

Government is an evil; it is only the thoughtlessness and vices of men that make it a necessary evil. When all men are good and wise, government will of itself decay.
View quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Democracy means government by the uneducated, while aristocracy means government by the badly educated.
