Judge Brown Is An Extremist Like Our Founders

I got this from Coyote Blog:

Gary Galles of the Mises Blog has hunted down many quotes of Janice Rogers Brown and compared them to quotes from our Founders. Brown is an extremist? If you think so, then you also believe the Founders were extremists. And you would then agree with King George III, the NY Times and the People for the American Way.

An example:

Janice Rogers Brown: "Where government advances—and it advances relentlessly—freedom is imperiled...When did government cease to be a necessary evil and become a goody bag to solve our private problems?"

Thomas Paine: "Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one."

George Mason: "Every society, all government, and every kind of civil compact therefore, is or ought to be, calculated for the general good and safety of the community. Every power, every authority vested in particular men is, or ought to be, ultimately directed at this sole end; and whenever any power or authority whatever extends further...than is in its nature necessary for these purposes, it may be called government, but it is in fact oppression.

"Thomas Jefferson: ‘What more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people?...a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government..."
