The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that aren't true.
--attributed to Mark Twain

" We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle
just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the
same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party
over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all."
-- Ronald Reagan, 1965

" Without God, there is no virtue, because there’s no prompting of conscience.
Without God, we’re mired in the material, that flat world that tells only what the senses perceive.
Without God, there is a coarsening of the society.
And without God, democracy will not and cannot endure. "

-- Ronald Reagan

Join me in a dream of a California whose government isn't characterized by political hacks
and cronies and relatives--an administration that doesn't make its decisions based on political
expediency but on moral truth. Together, let us find men to match our mountains. We can
have a government administered by men and women who are appointed on the basis of ability
and dedication--not as a reward for political favors. If we must have a double standard of morality,
then let it be one, which demands more of those in government, not less.

-- Ronald Reagan, 1966

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which
must not be compromised to political expediency or simply to swell its numbers."

-- Ronald Reagan, CPAC February 15, 1975

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."
-- Marcus Tullius Cicero (Ancient Roman Lawyer, Writer, Scholar, Orator and Statesman, 106 BC-43 BC)

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
-– Thomas Jefferson

"The common and continual mischief of the spirit of Party are sufficient to make it the
interest and duty of a wise People, to discourage and restrain it. The spirit of Party
always serves to distract the Public Councils and enfeeble the Public administration,
agitating the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindling animosity
of one part against the other, fomenting riot and insurrection. It opens the door
to foreign influence and corruption which finds facilitated access to the government
itself through channels of Party passions."
-- George Washington, 1796 Farewell Address

" The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred
as the law of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice
to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence."
-- John Adams (1735-1826). Founding Father, 2nd US President

"Peace, commerce, and honest friendship, with all nations—entangling alliances with none."
-- President Thomas Jefferson, 1801

The Hall of Shame:

"My relationship to power and authority is that I’m all for it," he once explained.
"People need somebody to watch over them.... Ninety-five percent of the
people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave."

-- Arnold Schwarzenegger, U.S. News & World Report, Nov 26, 1990

" Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every
single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion
about what you do and how you do it."

-- Rudy Giuliani, New York Times, March 17, 1994
