“Despite her muddled comments [last] week, there’s no doubt where Mrs. Clinton stands on ballot integrity. She opposes photo ID laws, even though they enjoy over 80% support in the polls. She has also introduced a bill to force every state to offer no-excuse absentee voting as well as Election Day registration- easy avenues for election chicanery. The bill requires that every state restore voting rights to all criminals who have completed their prison terms, parole or probation.” – John Fund

“Senator Clinton is determined not to tell us where she stands on anything. Instead, she has come to believe, probably correctly, that if we knew what she really wants to do as president, we would never vote for her.” – Dick Morris

“For today’s Democrats, resistance to unilateral presidential war-making reflects not principled constitutionalism but petulance about the current president. Democrats were supine when President Bill Clinton launched a sustained air war against Serbia without congressional authorization. Instead, he cited NATO’s authorization as though that were an adequate substitute for the collective judgment that the Constitution mandates.” – George Will

“Contemporary politics is all about phony energy, about running around slamming doors for the sake of it- or, more to the point, opening them and tossing through a huge sack of taxpayer dollars.” – Mark Steyn

“Washington needs to get out of education altogether. Congressional meddling is unconstitutional: You won’t find ‘education’ or ‘schooling’ anywhere in the federal government’s enumerated powers.” – Neal McCluskey

“Ron Paul’s extraordinary fundraising success is a clear sign that there is a yearning by the Republican grassroots for the party to return to its historic small-government roots. Paul’s message of limited government, free markets and peace obviously has touched a chord. Perhaps the other candidates and the big-government conservatives in Washington should take notice.” – Michael Tanner

“[Last Wednesday] I was with the vice president. I was asking him what [Halloween] costume he was planning. He said, ‘Well, I’m already wearing it.’ Then he mumbled something about the dark side of the Force.” – President George W. Bush

“Most of you knew me long before anyone called me Darth Vader. I’ve been asked if that nickname bothers me, and the answer is, no. After all, Darth Vader is one of the nicer things I’ve been called recently.” – Vice President Dick Cheney

“The beauty of our system isn’t that we have the right to vote. No, the nice thing is that people who are too dumb or lazy or uninformed to bother casting a ballot aren’t compelled to vote.” – Burt Prelutsky
