Quotes for the day...

"He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature." ~Socrates

"Be careful to leave your sons well instructed rather than rich, for the hopes of the instructed are better than the wealth of the ignorant." ~Epictitus

"The greatest wealth is to live content with little." ~Plato

"I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven." ~Jesus

All quotes promote a simple life, education, sharing and/or lack of riches.  These are NOT Republican pro-corporate, anti-equality themes, which are the antithesis of biblical teachings and aged wisdom.  Truly, Republicans are anti-democratic.

In other words, you can be Republican today, but you can't be truly christian, humane, or true to American principles at the same time.  For freedom should not be valued more than equality, money more than each other.  Indeed, the wisest human beings known said so...
