"My guess is that the majority of Americans believe that citizens — especially if in need — have a “right” to medical care, free education, a house, subsidized food, and endless other services. What they don’t want to hear is that governments have nothing to pass out, since they produce nothing. Anytime government provides a benefit, it must first steal it from someone else who is producing it, thus violating the rights of that individual. It is important to remember that."
— Ron Paul, Liberty Defined (p. 70)
