- "...he proposed many ideas that have become accepted, including income tax withholding, volunteer army, and school vouchers..."( someone needs to tell Scott Simon that school vouchers have not become accepted.)
- "He promoted liberty in all human spheres...."
- "...did the most to promote human freedom around the world during the twentieth century."

- "...was also a policymaker with his finger in all sorts of pies."
- "He was consistently for freedom."
