Political Quotations

    "If you put the Federal Government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there would be a shortage of sand.” — Milton Friedman

    “I need a job. My family can’t eat healthcare.”

    “Romney can tell us when he left Bain Capital when Obama tells us when he left Kenya.”

    “Let’s not look backwards and look at Obama’s past. Instead, let’s look backwards and dwell on Romney’s past.”

    “He that is good at making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” —Benjamin Franklin

    “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” —Winston Churchill

    “INTAXICATION:  The nice feeling you receive a tax refund until you realize it was your own money in the first place.”

    “Romney supporters sign their checks on the front while Obama supporters sign their checks on the back.”

    “If you can afford beer, wine, drugs, cigarettes, manicures, and tattoos, you don’t need food stamps or welfare.

    “We should measure the success of government programs by how many people leave them not how many people are added to them.”

    “When the government fears the people, there is freedom. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” — Thomas Jefferson

    “If someone is so fearful that they are going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, it makes me very nervous that these people have any weapons  at all!” — Democrat Congressman Henry A. Waxman (California).

And one of my favorites.:

"If you think it's time to start burying your guns......then it's probably

time to start digging them up".

I tried to find out who first said that one, but the best reference I could find was here. 

I thought it was Claire Wolfe, but it looks like Tam said it first.

You go, girl!

  1. Rep. Waxman (he of the horribly malformed nostrils, as I recall) typifies point of the final quote. If he weren't trampling the citizens' rights, he'd have no reason to fear anyone.

    Great quotes!

    1. You mean Waxman's a regular Nostrildamage?

      I think the 3rd from the bottom is a Reagan quote, isn't it?

    2. I'm not sure who said the ones that aren't attributed.

      They came in an email from a friend of mine.

  2. Yeah, Waxman is a real piece of work.

    One of my friends who lives up that way said he was sitting a red light, and who should go through the walkway but Waxman!

    He said it took every bit of self-control he had to keep from mashing the gas pedal all the way to the floor.....
