THE GRASSROOTS EDUCATION INSTITUTE IS A NON-PARTISAN, NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT TRAINS ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS WORKING TO PROMOTE ECONOMIC LIBERTY
Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.
Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.
Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.
Politics must be the battle of the principles… the principle of liberty against the principle of force.
Those who expect to reap the benefits of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
Man is not free unless government is limited.
So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear. That there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.
Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.
