Many people seem to think that our country and our government are the same. I have to say, God forbid. I love our country and the principles it was born on, but the government of our country, is totally different.
“[T]he government and the country are not the same thing. I love America and would not want to live anywhere else, and I am dedicated to the principles on which America was founded. But the government is a different matter entirely.” — Richard J. Marbury
