REPUBLIC
[ Also see America Communism Democracy Despotism Equality Freedom Government Liberty Majority Minority States ]

The same fact that Boccaccio offers in support of religion might be adduced in behalf of a republic: "It exists in spite of its ministers."
      - Heinrich Heine

Equal and exact justice to all men, of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political; peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations,--entangling alliances with none; the support of the State governments in all their rights, as the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns, and the surest bulwarks against anti-republican tendencies; the preservation of the General Government in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home and safety abroad; * * * freedom of religion; freedom of the press; freedom of person under the protection of habeas corpus; and trials by juries impartially selected,--these principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us, and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation.
      - Thomas Jefferson

At twenty every one is republican.
      - Alphonse de Lamartine

Republicanism and ignorance are in bitter antagonism.
      - Alphonse de Lamartine

Republics end through luxury; monarchies through poverty.
  [Fr., Les republiques finissent par le luxe; les monarchies, par la pauvrete.]
      - Charles de Montesquieu (Charles-Louis de Secondat),
        De l'Esprit (VII, ch. IV)

Republics, like individuals, who are benefited by personal sacrifices, are proverbially ungrateful.
      - Epes Sargent

Though I admire republican principles in theory, yet I am afraid the practice may be too perfect for human nature. We tried a republic last century, and it failed. Let our enemies try next. I hate political experiments.
      - Sir Robert Walpole, 1st Earl of Orford

Happiness is more effectually dispensed to mankind under a republican form of government than any other.
      - George Washington

Republicanism is not the phantom of a deluded imagination. On the contrary, laws, under no form of government, are better supported, liberty and property better secured, or happiness more effectually dispensed to mankind.
      - George Washington
