“If I see but one smile on your lips when we meet, occasioned by this or any other exertion of mine, I shall need no other happiness.”
– Mary Shelley
Government should enforce rule of law. It should enforce contracts, it should protect people bodily from being attacked by criminals. And when the government does those things, it is facilitating liberty. When it goes beyond those things, it becomes destructive to both human happiness and human liberty.
– Grover Norquist
