  • Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
  • We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
  • Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
  • If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
  • Government is like a baby: an alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.
  • Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
  • A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.
  • Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
  • A hippie is someone who looks like Tarzan, walks like Jane and smells like Cheetah.
  • Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.
  • It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.
  • We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
  • We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
  • The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.
  • We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free.
  • The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.
  • Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.
  • How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
  • Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.
  • I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.
  • Welfare’s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.
  • I’ve never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a ‘fat cat’ and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a ‘public-spirited philanthropist’.
  • Man is not free unless government is limited.
  • I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there’s purpose and worth to each and every life.
  • Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.
