We are Republicans, and don't propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been Rum, Romanism, and Rebellion.Samuel D. Burchard, one of the Deputation visiting James G. Blaine during the 1884 presidential election (October 29, 1884).
"Global Warming" represents the last gasp of so-called "scientific progressivism", a mass of pitifully transparent falsehoods being employed to justify reducing mankind under the absolute despotism of "experts", the obvious implication being that we can’t even breathe responsibly. Environmentalism, Gaianism, is a religion on the basis of which – illegally under the First Amendment – public policy is being generated. Exhaling carbon dioxide is Original Sin, a reliable source of unlimited power and wealth to a Parasitic Class of politicians, bureaucrats, and cops with which our civilization now finds itself infested.l. neil smith
To "bear arms" is, in itself, a military term. One does not bear arms against a rabbit.Garry Wills, "To Keep and Bear Arms", The New York Review of Books", September 21, 1995.
