"This is one of the most intellectually gifted presidents we've had."

now the liberals want to stop President Reagan from selling chemical warfare
agents and military equipment to Saddam Hussein and why? Because Saddam 'allegedly'

course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country
who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people
along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or
a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought
to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them
they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism,
and exposing the country to greater danger."
-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials
"The National Government
will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the
spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles
on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation
of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life."
-- Adolph Hitler, My New World Order, Proclamation to the German Nation at Berlin, February 1, 1933
"As democracy is
perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the
inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of
the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will
be adorned by a downright moron."
-- H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)
"We need new leadership
which will act because it is right, not because they have been caught in cover-ups
-- Tom DeLay, 1994, condemning the Democrats' failure to move against Dan Rostenkowski
