Overthrew The Government quotes by Ian McDonald
#1. She was theorizing on the Deep State; that enduring Turkish paranoia that the nation really was a conspiracy run by a cabal of generals, judges, industrialists and gangsters. The Taksim Square massacre of three years before, the Kahramanmaraş slaughter of Alevis a few months after, the oil crisis and the enduring economic instability, even the ubiquity of the Grey Wolves nationalist youth movement handing out their patriotic leaflets and defiling Greek Churches: all were links in an accelerating chain of events running through the fingers of the Derin Devlet. To what end? the men asked. Coup, she said, leaning forward, her fingers pursed. It was then that Georgios Ferentinou adored her. The classic profile, the strength of her jaw and fine cheekbones. The way she shook her head when the men disagreed with her, how her bobbed, curling hair swayed. The way she would not argue but set her lips and stared, as if their stupidity was a stubborn offence against nature. Her animation in argument balanced against her marvellous stillness when listening, considering, drawing up a new answer. How she paused, feeling the regard of another, then turned to Georgios and smiled.
In the late summer of 1980 Georgios Ferentinou fell in love with Ariana Sinanidis by Meryem Nasi's swimming pool. Three days later, on September 12th, Chief of General Staff Kenan Evren overthrew the government and banned all political activity. #Quote by Ian McDonald
Overthrew The Government quotes by Narendra Modi
#2. The government's job is good governance for everybody. My government will make policies; if you fit into it, come on board, or stay where you are. My job is not to spoon-feed anyone. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Overthrew The Government quotes by David Brooks
#3. Nearly every parent on earth operates on the assumption that character matters a lot to the life outcomes of their children. Nearly every government antipoverty program operates on the assumption that it doesn't. #Quote by David Brooks
Overthrew The Government quotes by James Meredith
#4. I considered myself engaged in a war from Day One. And my objective was to force the federal government - the Kennedy administration at that time - into a position where they would have to use the United States military force to enforce my rights as a citizen. #Quote by James Meredith
Overthrew The Government quotes by Carla Howell
#5. I say a vote for the Democrats or Republicans is the ONLY wasted vote ... By buying into the rhetoric that there are only two parties worth voting for ... you increase their power. And with it, you promote the watered-down freedoms and endless government growth that these two parties consisently vote for. #Quote by Carla Howell
Overthrew The Government quotes by Jay Leno
#6. The federal government said today they've begun training sessions for airport security workers to provide what they call more customer satisfaction to the travels, they want to make it easier for us. They're instructing security guards to glance at your luggage tags so that they can call you by your first name. Isn't that creepy? The guy touching your wife, calling her by her first name. #Quote by Jay Leno
Overthrew The Government quotes by Andrew Klavan
#7. If someone from the government tries to put his hands on your money ... run away as fast as you can and tell the nearest conservative. #Quote by Andrew Klavan

Overthrew The Government quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#9. It is contended by many that ours is a Christian government, founded upon the Bible, and that all who look upon the book as false or foolish are destroying the foundation of our country. The truth is, our government is not founded upon the rights of gods, but upon the rights of men. Our Constitution was framed, not to declare and uphold the deity of Christ, but the sacredness of humanity. Ours is the first government made by the people and for the people. It is the only nation with which the gods have had nothing to do. And yet there are some judges dishonest and cowardly enough to solemnly decide that this is a Christian country, and that our free institutions are based upon the infamous laws of Jehovah. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Overthrew The Government quotes by Frank Herbert
#10. Governments can be useful to the governed only so long as inherent tendencies toward tyranny are restrained. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Overthrew The Government quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#11. There is no use in deceiving ourselves. American public opinion rejects the market economy, the capitalistic free enterprise system that provided the nation with the highest standard of living ever attained. Full government control of all activities of the individual is virtually the goal of both national parties. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Overthrew The Government quotes by James Baldwin
#12. The price one pays for pursuing any profession or calling is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side. #Quote by James Baldwin
Overthrew The Government quotes by Wendell Phillips
#13. A large body of people, sufficient to make a nation, have come to the conclusion that they will have a government of a certain form. Who denies them the right? Standing with the principles of '76 behind us, who can deny them the right? ... I maintain on the principles of '76 that Abraham Lincoln has no right to a soldier in Fort Sumter ... You can never make such a war popular ... The North never will endorse such a war. #Quote by Wendell Phillips
Overthrew The Government quotes by Kenneth Eade
#14. The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, intact for over 200 years, guaranteed that the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath of affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. After September 11th, 2001, those were just words on an old piece of paper, no longer a restriction of the Government's overreaching power to shake down its subjects. #Quote by Kenneth Eade
Overthrew The Government quotes by Charley Reese
#15. Make sure the government treats others the same as you would want the government to treat you ... Once you consent to the government ignoring the Constitution, you deny yourself the protection of the Constitution. #Quote by Charley Reese
Overthrew The Government quotes by Nick Turse

Overthrew The Government quotes by Oliver North

#20. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - two bloated and corrupt government-sponsored programs - contributed heavily to the crisis.In order to prevent another crisis, we need to do what we should have done years ago - reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. We also need to repeal Dodd-Frank, the Democrats' failed solution. Under Dodd-Frank, 10 banks too big to fail have become five banks too big to fail. Thousands of community banks have gone out of business. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
Overthrew The Government quotes by J. William Fulbright

Overthrew The Government quotes by Niall Ferguson
#25. Between economic freedom and government regulation? Chapter 2 will address these issues. The specific question I ask is how far very complex regulation has become the disease of which it purports to be the cure, distorting and corrupting both the political and the economic process. #Quote by Niall Ferguson
Overthrew The Government quotes by Thomas McKean
#26. The true liberty of the press is amply secured by permitting every man to publish his opinion; but it is due to the peace and dignity of society, to inquire into the motives of such publications, and to distinguish between those which are meant for use and reformation, and with an eye solely to the public good, and those which are intended merely to delude and defame. To the latter description, it is impossible that any good government should afford protection and impunity. #Quote by Thomas McKean
Overthrew The Government quotes by Michael Newdow
#27. The Constitution says that government isn't supposed to be infusing religion into our society, and so I asked to have that upheld. #Quote by Michael Newdow
Overthrew The Government quotes by Ronald L. Buckwalter
#28. If the Government is going to intrude upon the sacred ground of the First Amendment and tell its citizens that their exercise of protected speech could land them in jail, the law imposing such a penalty must clearly define the prohibited speech not only for the potential offender but also for the potential enforcer. #Quote by Ronald L. Buckwalter
Overthrew The Government quotes by Katherine Boo
#29. Two boys who looked to be seven years old had been picked up while sweeping floors in a cheap hotel. They reminded Abdul of his little brothers, and he felt emotional being around them. He couldn't see why the state had taken them from their parents. Being so poor that you had to work so young seemed like punishment enough.

Abdul had kept to himself in his first days at Dongri, aware of his inadequacy in the conversational arts, but the incarceration of the seven-year-olds inflamed him. "What's the use, keeping them here?" he blurted out one day. "You see their faces? So much enthusiasm for life, they are going to break the walls of this jail. The government people should let them work, let them be free. #Quote by Katherine Boo
Overthrew The Government quotes by Patricia Briggs
#30. You are looking at this wrong. You think I hold my territory by the might of my fist. But that's not it. I hold my territory by consent of the governed. I think it is a very American concept, which might be why you never looked for it."
- Adam Hauptman, Columbia Basin Pack Alpha, to Iacopo (Jacob) Bonarata, Lord of the Night (master vampire of Milan) #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Overthrew The Government quotes by Jose Saramago
#31. Events went on to show that it is not by chance that a prime minister reaches such lofty heights and that, as the infallible wisdom of nations has demonstrated time and time again, each country gets the government it deserves, although it must be said that while it is true to say that prime ministers, for good or ill, are not all the same, it is no less true to say, are all countries. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Overthrew The Government quotes by William Bill
#32. I've been telling you for years that if they don't get their way, if all of this stuff that's happened does not enable them to bring about their world totalitarian socialist government, disarm the American people and create their New World Order, they'll blow up an American city with an atomic bomb. They will do it. I have said it probably a couple of hundred times. #Quote by William Bill
Overthrew The Government quotes by Dick Durbin
#33. As a government lawyer, Samuel Alito wrote that he personally believe very strongly the Constitution does not protect the right to an abortion. #Quote by Dick Durbin
Overthrew The Government quotes by Elbert Guillory
#34. The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our communities are just as poor as they've always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them. #Quote by Elbert Guillory
Overthrew The Government quotes by Dale Carnegie
#35. I have heard, in such a way as to believe it, of your recently saying that both the army and the Government needed a dictator. Of course, it was not for this, but in spite of it, that I have given you command. Only those generals who gain successes can set up as dictators. What I now ask of you is military success and I will risk the dictatorship. #Quote by Dale Carnegie
Overthrew The Government quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#36. The emblem of equal rights. It means free hands, free lips, self- government, and the sovereignty of the individual. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Overthrew The Government quotes by George J. Mitchell

Overthrew The Government quotes by Tit Elingtin
#38. Our system was not set up to for the government to be able to do with a man's kingdom what they want. It was set up to protect that man's kingdom, to allow him to feel that his borders, no matter how great or small, would always be secure and that he would always be allowed to defend them. The Supreme Court took that right away with their eminent domain ruling back in 2005. The governments have taken advantage of that eminent domain ruling, and you, the media, have failed at protecting citizens. #Quote by Tit Elingtin
Overthrew The Government quotes by Edward Snowden
#39. Before 2013, if you said the NSA was making records of everybody's phone calls and the [Government Communications Headquarters] was monitoring lawyers and journalists, people raised eyebrows and called you a conspiracy theorist. Those days are over. #Quote by Edward Snowden
Overthrew The Government quotes by Paul Monette
#40. If the government was going to continue to act as if we didn't exist, if the medical establishment was prone to gridlock over funds, if the drug companies were waiting till the curve got high enough for profit, then we would find our own way. #Quote by Paul Monette
Overthrew The Government quotes by Jose Antonio Vargas
#41. I came to the realization that I refuse to let a presidency scare me from my own country. I refuse to live a life of fear defined by a government that doesn't even know why it fears what it fears. Because I am not a citizen by law or by birth, I've had to create and hold on to a different kind of citizenship.... Citizenship is showing up. Citizenship is using your voice while making sure you hear other people around you. Citizenship is how you live your life. #Quote by Jose Antonio Vargas
Overthrew The Government quotes by John Negroponte
#42. We negotiated with the Honduran government the establishment of a regional military training center, for training central American forces, but the primary motivation for doing that was to be able to bolster the quality, improve the quality of the El Salvadoran fighting forces. #Quote by John Negroponte
Overthrew The Government quotes by Hal Rothman
#43. From its founding, [Nevada] has always struggled to belong. It has had a series of masters
the mining industry, the railroads, the federal government, and now gaming and tourism
that have driven the state's economy and compelled its direction. #Quote by Hal Rothman
Overthrew The Government quotes by Victoria Woodhull
#44. The will of the entire people is the true basis of republican government, and a free expression ... by the public vote of all citizens, without distinctions of race, color, occupation, or sex, is the only means by which that will can be ascertained. #Quote by Victoria Woodhull
Overthrew The Government quotes by John Raese
#45. We ought to start running the government like a private-sector business. I have that ability as CEO of our companies. I have line item vetoes, and if I didn't, we'd probably be out of business by now. #Quote by John Raese
Overthrew The Government quotes by Upton Sinclair
#46. He learned that America differed from Russia in that its government existed under the form of a democracy. The officials who ruled it, and got all the graft, had to be elected first; and so there were two rival sets of grafters, known as political parties, and the one got the office which bought the most votes. Now and then, the election was very close, and that was the time the poor man came in. In the stockyards this was only in national and state elections, for in local elections the Democratic Party always carried everything. #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Overthrew The Government quotes by James Bovard
#47. It is absurd to expect governments to descend gradually, step-by-step into barbarism - as if there was a train schedule to political hell and people could get off at any stop along the way. #Quote by James Bovard
Overthrew The Government quotes by Dennis Ross
#48. It has been an honor to work in the Obama Administration and to serve this President, particularly during a period of unprecedented change in the broader Middle East. Obviously, there is still work to do but I promised my wife I would return to government for only two years and we both agreed it is time to act on my promise. #Quote by Dennis Ross
