“God who gave us life, gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their
only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?”
  Thomas Jefferson
“The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount. If we don’t have a proper
fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government
which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State”
   Harry Truman
