Jack Kemp
American senator

We don't believe compassion should be measured by the size of the safety net, but by the number of rungs on the ladder of opportunity.

1992 - from a speech to the Republican convention
It's in the nature of the private sector, particularly in a time of rapid technological change like the Internet era, to come up with a wide range of solutions to new problems like on-line privacy and test them in the marketplace. Not all of these products will survive, and not all will suit the needs of all users. But it should be clear by now that we're better off trusting the market's invisible hand to look out for our interests on-line than a one-size-fits-all system of government regulation. Even if government bureaucrats could think through all the problems and come up with objective solutions, they couldn't possibly anticipate the way technology and the marketplace will change tomorrow, next week or next year. The market is, by definition, much more responsive to changes in the way we live, work and do business.

Sep. 28, 2000 - from "Government should protect our on-line privacy", published by Copley News Service

Apr. 06, 1987
Democracy without morality is impossible.
