Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Alexander Hamilton

“To cherish and stimulate the activity of the human mind, by multiplying the objects of enterprise, is not among the least considerable of the expedients, by which the wealth of a nation may be promoted. Even things in themselves not positively advantageous, sometimes become so, by their tendency to provoke exertion. Every new scene, which is opened to the busy nature of man to rouse and exert itself, is the addition of a new energy to the general stock of effort.”

Republican Weekly Address: Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO)

Blunt says that Obama’s upcoming State of the Union speech has some explaining to do in how more government, more spending, more taxes and more debt help out-of-work and poor Americans. Blunt also states, “We don’t need more class warfare, and we don’t need more interference from Washington. No government program can replace what a good job means for the future of a family.”
