    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."

          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).

                Right. A liberal on another thread was just talking about the parties' shifting positions.

            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.

              Hi, Doug. Do you consider Lincoln a neo-con?

                Doug Hughesposted 7 years agoin reply to this

                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.

        The 'two parties" quote was actually comedian Bob Hope.

        The "Quran" quote was skateboarder Jacob Isom, who prevented the burning of a copy of the text when he snatched the book out of the book burner's hands.

          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?

      “ 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.
