Notable Quotes

Rational Nation USA, believing there is value and lessons to be gained from insightful quotes by individuals of wisdom embarked on "Quotes of the Week at Rational Nation USA.". While we continue to believe there is value to be gained from reflecting on quotes by knowledgeable  men and women of reason and liberty, the feedback has been limited.

Therefor Rational Nation USA is discontinuing "Quotes of the Week at Rational Nation USA." Periodically, whenever the mood grabs me, quotes will appear in limited number. There are many issues that require attention in this time of liberal statist onslaught on American values that ought be addressed. So, it shall be in the spirit of this noble pursuit Rational Nation USA shall devote the lions share of its efforts.

Now a few "Quotes of Note."

Enjoy the coming week, and remember, YOU can make a difference!
