And don't Google it.
"The Republican party goes right along, from year to year ... until it has come to think that the political power of the United States is its property, and that it is a sort of insolence for any other party to aspire to any part of that power. Nothing can be worse for a country than this."
I have no clue, but I'll embarrass myself with a wrong guess. William F. Buckley, Jr.?
You googled didn't you? You are right.
I love how things don't change that much...
Anyone else want to have us guess a quote?
Feck!!! I'm gonna crack a beer open to celebrate that the Buffoon isn't such an idiot after all!! I swear on THE CONSTITUTION that I DID NOT GOOGLE IT! HONEST TO GOODNESS!
Got me in the mind of what happened earlier in the month with Huck Finn, and one thought led to another? Damn, I promise!
Back when Mark Twain was alive, the "Republican" party was more like the current Democrat Party.
so twain's statements would currently be anti-Democrat
False, as all political parties have been moving to the right over time the democrats would have been further to the left and thus Mark Twain's analysis of the Republican party would still have applied to the republican party.
Abraham Lincoln - and thus the scorn of the South - was a Republican...
... and things have changed.
Lincoln stood for government spending, federal bailouts, federal consolidation of power, and above all more taxes.
Today much of the same claims apply to the Democrat Party (although, the Republican is guilty as well).
From 1901 until his death in 1910, Twain was vice president of the American Anti-Imperialist League. Doesn't sound like a neo-con group.
Habee, you and I both know history. Lincoln was a Republican. So was Teddy Roosevelt, a clear progressive. The Democratic party was steeped in racism until progressive democrats embraced the Civil Rights movement. The 'Southern Strategy' propelled Reagan to power by converting unhappy racists to the GOP. Neither party is staticic in philosophy - neither is pure.
"Three men can keep a secret, if two of them are dead."
Who said this memorable 5 words?
"Dude, you have no Quran."
Ok,how about this one?
"No one party can fool all the people all the time. That's why we have two parties."
I have panic breathing when I am stressed. I will certainly attempt this as a way of calming myself. Thank you for the advice.
Who said, "It is not ours to fix the blame for the past, rather it is ours to fix the course for the future"?
Who said...As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it.
How about...It is easier to fight for principles than to live up to them.
These last 3 are all from the same person.
If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?
Sponges grow in the ocean. That just kills me. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn't happen.
If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happens if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?
That last one was from Hubber, Don Ship (thinker-up of ever-challenging questions on HubPages), wasn't it?
1st one, was Dick Cavett
Elana was correct with the Alfred Adler response and the last three are from Steven Wright who is argueably the smartest man on this planet. The surest sign of intelligent life in the universe is that none have tried to contact us.
Actually, I said that. You're right, according to me, Lisa!
I know this one, it's Alfred Alder's. I just know it because I fell for it in the movie "The Contender", which is quoted in one of my hubs... don't even remember which one, but it did make a long lasting impression on me!
“ Unless you knew better, you might swear that Chicken Little has taken over the newsroom and bolted the door. Hyping hysteria and peddling panic around the clock is now an enterprise listed on the Dow Jones ticker. And everybody watches, anxiety junkies cruising for another hit, just in case there’s some real news. After all, another 9/11 could happen, and we might miss it. ”
I like this one...it's from a novel.
...who said.."A tiny and closed fraternity of privileged men, elected by no one, and enjoying a monopoly sanctioned and licensed by government."
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
While you decide who said all of the previous I am giving you an easier quote to put a name to.

I am not an American, but what goes on in the USA is important to the world.Lincoln was a Republican and freed the slaves. One would expect black Americans to generally vote Republican. But they don't.How did this come about?

I am not saying that none of the candidates gathered the 207 electorate votes. I am just stating that a majority of the US citizens vote blank. Will the majority rule?

I’m curious to know what the ‘breaking point’ was for people who have switched Parties in their lifetime -from either side. I’ve always been on one side, but I read about people who’ve said they ‘seen the Iight’ and switched (no pun there, ha ha)

Could a Republican and a Democrat work as President and Vice President of the United States?With so much divisiveness in the United States, would the country become more united if we had a Democrat and a Republican or a Republican and a Democrat as President and Vice President? Currently I think...
