Event

 
"We are taxed in our bread and our wine, in our incomes and our investments, on 
our land and on our property not only for base creatures who do not deserve the 
name of men, but for foreign nations, complaisant nations who will bow to us 
and accept our largesse and promise us to assist in the keeping of the peace - 
these mendicant nations who will destroy us when we show a moment of weakness 
or our treasury is bare, and surely it is becoming bare! We are taxed to 
maintain legions on their soil, in the name of law and order and the Pax 
Romana, a document which will fall into dust when it pleases our allies and our 
vassals. We keep them in precarious balance only with our gold. Is the 
heartblood of our nation worth these? Were they bound to us with ties of love, 
they would not ask our gold. They take our very flesh, and they hate and 
despise us. And who shall say we are worthy of more? ... When a government 
becomes powerful it is destructive, extravagant and violent; it is an usurer 
which takes bread from innocent mouths and deprives honorable men of their 
substance, for votes with which to perpetuate itself."
-- Cicero
54 B.C.

"Lawyers are being graduated from our law schools by the thousands who have 
little knowledge of the Constitution. When  organizations seek a lawyer to 
instruct them on the Constitution, they find it nearly impossible to secure one 
competent."
-- Committee on American Citizenship

"I do not believe there are more than a very limited number of persons, perhaps 
a hundred who really know what is in the Constitution of the United States."
-- Dr. John J. Tigert
U. S. Commissioner of Education, October, 1924
