Republican Quotes

I thought I'd share a list of Republican quotes, crossposted from my diary at Redstate. I invite others to share other quotes that they like.

"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are"
--Teddy Roosevelt

"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, subsidise it. "

"Wherever there is a conflict between human rights and property rights, human rights must prevail"
--A. Lincoln

"History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap."

"We trust sir that God is on our side"
Lincoln's response: "It is more important that we are on God's side"

"How far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without? "

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
--Teddy Roosevelt

"Solutions are not the answer."

"Too often, my party has confused the need for limited government with a disdain for government itself"
--GW Bush

"Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have."

"The government is us; we are the government, you and I."
--Teddy Roosevelt

"It is our solemn responsibility to show that government can have both a head and a heart; that it can be both progressive and solvent; and that it can serve the people without becoming their master."
--Thomas Dewey

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we have destroyed ourselves."

"Materialistic democracy beckons every man to make himself a king; republican citizenship incites every man to be a knight."
--WF Buckley

Good quotes. Never heard the Nixon quote before, reminds me of Specter.

Your last Lincoln quote is the I would like the hammer into the heads of our elected officials. Not just talking about the Patroit Act, the quality of the news and political discourse in the country is appalling. It's all starting to sound like propagada...both sides.

Thought blog, nicely done
