Conservative Wisdom I

Written : Nov. 2, 2010 and Feb. 15, 2011

”We are different from previous generations of conservatives. We are no longer working to preserve the status quo. We are radicals, working to overturn the present power structure of this country.” - Paul Weyrich

”We don't have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven't taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.” – President Ronald Reagan

”I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.” - William F. Buckley, Jr.

”That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.” - Thomas Jefferson

”Liberalism is based on wishful thinking and not on reality.” - Dennis Prager (and others)

”And conservatives know that if you reject these principles of limited government and urge others to reject them you can be my ally, you can be my friend, but you cannot call yourself a conservative.” – Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN)

”The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” - British Prime Minister Winston Churchill

”The prudent capitalist will never adventure his capital... if there exists a state of uncertainty as to whether the Government will repeal tomorrow what it has enacted today.” – The ninth U.S. President, William Henry Harrison

"Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem." – Ronald Reagan (R-CA)

”…And, maybe all they’re waiting for is a word from you. And, you know, sometimes that word is so simple. It goes like this: ‘Hey John, you can do it!’ “ – Rich DeVos

Write an opinion about something. Just a list of quotations from a bunch of rich people you admire who don't (or didn't) care about the middle and working class is just so predictable from you, although I do see a thread here in the owners of the those quotes, you sure love your racist, misogynist homophobes, don't you?

Hey, Jack, I miss your misguided wise-cracks, they were amusing! It's not a class battle, my friend, it's about the individual striving for better and achieving it. You can succeed without your comrades, you know. Keep trying your best, and I know you can do it!
