Words to Vote By

The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.
- George Washington

When firearms go, all goes. We need them every hour.
- George Washington

It would be nice if the Democrats shared your view Mr. President. They do not believe that they deserve a place of honor; neither do they believe they are good.

The clearest way to show what the rule of law means to us in everyday life is to recall what has happened when there is no rule of law.

- Dwight D. Eisenhower

What happens without the rule of law? Mexicans dancing in our streets, claiming revolutionary victory and waiving the Mexican flag. American citizens killed by unlicensed, undocumented and uninsured alien drivers. American homes, on the Mexican border, overrun by an alien horde. Beer companies openly paying for illegal rallies. Main stream newspapers committing treason in war time. That's what happens, when there is no rule of law, Mr. President.

Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.

- Theodore Roosevelt

Sorry Mr. President. That's just not diverse and multicultural enough for today's decaying liberal American dream.

I think there is only one quality worse than hardness of heart and that is softness of head.

- Theodore Roosevelt

You mean good looks and a feel-your-pain attitude are not the correct attributes for political leadership. Say it isn't so!

Don't think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed.

- Dwight D. Eisenhower

I'm sure that is exactly what the Clintons thought, when they rewrote history in their books. It's too bad, for them, your words have exceptional relevance these days, Mr. President.

The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.

- Theodore Roosevelt

And with liberal social policies and a general apathy towards the sacrifices made by our troops in the field, we have been following this yellow brick road for some time. It's time to storm the gates of the Emerald city, Mr. President.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.

- Abraham Lincoln

Mr. President, didn't you get the memo from Justice Souter and Ginsberg? The Constitution is a living document, so it should be treated with a dose of international Prozac and European Zoloft, just to alleviate that historical depression that always seems to pop-up.

We are tired of aristocratic explanations in Harvard words.

- Dwight D. Eisenhower

I am sorry if you were too stupid to understand senator Kerry's botched joke, Mr. President.

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

- Abraham Lincoln

Testify Abe! Testify to those rainy day undecided sheep at the voting booth.

History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.

- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Jimmy Carter's term certainly hits a home run on this one, Mr. President. The birth of modern terrorism, the first perception in the mideast, that we were weak. Over a year of failed diplomacy. Then this dope gives nuclear technology to North Korea. Hoo-boy.

To cure the British disease with socialism was like trying to cure leukaemia with leeches.
- Margaret Thatcher

What can I say? To cure the American disease with socialism would be like trying to cure mad cow disease with a meat grinder, some buns, cheese and mayo at a DNC convention.

The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government.
- Barry M. Goldwater

And we still haven't brought them to Justice, Barry.

If you tell people where to go, but not how to get there, you'll be amazed at the results.

- George S. Patton

Thanks for the advice General. Go to the polls and vote. I'm not going to tell you how to get there. Just amaze me with the results.

Wow! Awesome post! Teddy Roosevelt was wise beyond his time (would say years, but...).

Up until a few weeks ago I had decided not to vote. Not because I was undecided or weak, but because I am angry with all of them. But after much thought and a persuasive response to one of my comments by you, I have decided to vote. I have not missed an election since 1988. I'm even faithful to vote in local/school elections.

I'm beginning to find a different energy. It is a save my country energy.
