“Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid.” – Ronald Reagan

“To those who are fainthearted and unsure, I have this message: If you’re afraid of the future, then get out of the way, stand aside. The people of this country are ready to move again.” – Ronald Reagan

“We must remove government’s smothering hand from where it does harm.” – Ronald Reagan

“We’ve long thought there are two things in Washington that are unbalanced- the budget and the liberals.” – Ronald Reagan

“Environmentalists are Gaia’s priests, instructing us in her proper service and casting out those who refuse to genuflect… And having proclaimed the ultimate commandment- carbon chastity- they are preparing the supporting canonical legislation that will tell you how much you can travel, what kind of light you will read by, and at what temperature you may set your bedroom thermostat.” – Charles Krauthammer

“The true villain in our having to cough up $60, $70 or $80 to fill our gas tanks is the U.S. Congress caught in the grip of environmental extremists. But if reality is too difficult to swallow, we can continue to blame and support the congressional attack on oil executives, turn food into oil and think of other crackpot ‘solutions’.” – Walter Williams

“Apologists say that [Barack Obama’s] three years in the U.S. Senate say far more about him than his twenty years with Pastor Wright, but he’s actually done nothing as a Senator from Illinois other than launch and conduct a hugely successful presidential campaign.” – Michael Medved

“There is nothing more real than a man’s character and values. The track record of what he has actually done is far more real than anything he says, however elegantly he says it.” – Thomas Sowell

“Everybody knows the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his bigoted anti-American rants. We’ll soon get to know the Rev. Michael Pfleger. With Barack Obama, you’re not only waiting for the other shoe to drop. You’re following a centipede. In April 2004, Sen. Obama told a reporter from the Chicago Sun-Times that he had three spiritual mentors or counselors: Jeremiah Wright, James Meeks and Father Michael Pfleger. On Sunday, May 25, Pfleger showed up at Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ doing his best Rev. Wright imitation. A radical priest at Chicago’s St. Sabina Catholic Church, Pfleger told the congregation, ‘We must be honest enough to expose white entitlement and supremacy wherever it raises its head.’… Pfleger has had a working relationship with Obama since the late 1980s… Between 1995 and 2001, Pfleger contributed a total of $1,500 to Obama’s various political campaigns. This includes a $200 donation in April 2001, three months after Obama, still an Illinois state senator, helped obtain $225,000 in grants for St. Sabina programs. In 2000, Obama secured a $100,000 earmark for the ARK Community Center, attached to St. Sabina. Render unto Caesar… Does Obama have any spiritual mentors who don’t hate America and think all its people are racists? We don’t believe in guilt by association, but these are the only associations he seems to have… Both his judgment and his honesty, even his true beliefs, are in question.” – Investor’s Business Daily

“[J]ust out of curiosity, what does it mean, exactly, when a candidate finds something ‘unacceptable’? In a democracy, finding criticism unacceptable is a surefire way to drive yourself bonkers. It’s like saying you find it unacceptable that bears use the woods for a bathroom. It’s going to happen whether you accept it or not.” – Jonah Goldberg

“Are we going to leave our children hostages to hate-filled sadists with nuclear weapons? Are we to rely on Barack Obama’s rhetoric to protect them? Senator Obama’s foreign policy seems to be somewhere between Rodney King’s ‘Can’t we just get along?’ and Alfred E. Neuman’s ‘What, me worry?”‘ – Thomas Sowell

“Indiana Jones was denounced by Russia’s Communist Party. They don’t like the way the film portrays communists as evil and ruthless. They paid a lot of money to infiltrate Hollywood to make sure every evil and ruthless villain is a capitalist.” – Argus Hamilton

Jay Leno: Well, it looks like the Democrats finally solved their delegate problem. It seems the Democratic Party rules panel agreed to allow delegates from Florida and Michigan to take part in the convention, but each delegate will only count as half a vote. You’ve heard of superdelegates? These are the new fun-sized delegates. … Congratulations to Hillary Clinton, who won the Democratic primary in Puerto Rico. This is important because, as you know, Puerto Rico has absolutely no vote for president. I think she also won big in Guatemala. … Over the weekend, Barack Obama left his church. And after, he said to Hillary, “Okay, now it’s your turn to quit something.” … Barack Obama says he’s now looking for a new church- preferably one where the religious order has to take a vow of silence.
