The Word was the real light that gives light to everyone; he was coming into the world.
He was in the world that had come into being through him, and the world did not recognise him.
He came to his own and his own people did not accept him.
But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God.
—Gospel of John
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,
that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
— United States Declaration of Independence
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
— United States Constitution
A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another,
which 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.
— Thomas Jefferson
I tell you that the great cities rest upon these broad and fertile prairies.
Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again, as if by magic;
but destroy our farms, and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.
— William Jennings Bryan
I believe that the law was made for man and not man for the law;
that government is the servant of the people and not their master.
— John D. Rockefeller Jr.
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size.
I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
— Barry Goldwater
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.
— Ronald Reagan
Some things about me...
I hail from Veneto, where I was born a few decades ago.
I am interested in political parties and elections around the world, especially in the United States and Europe.
In en.Wiki I have worked mostly on Italian politics, political parties and elections, regionalist parties active around Europe, political ideologies, classification of parties by ideology, Christian denominations all over the world and religion in Italy.
I am especially proud of four of my projects:
As of 31 December 2016 I have made over 30,900 edits in en.Wiki, more than 15,700 in it.Wiki, plus a handful of edits in other Wikipedias.
