"The Party System was founded on one national notion of fair play. It was the notion that folly and futility should be fairly divided between both sides." —G. K. Chesterton

"Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule—and both commonly succeed, and are right." —H. L. Mencken

"Always stand on principle, even if you stand alone." —John Quincy Adams

"Many people have fled radical Muslim regimes to live in the U.S. Hardly anyone has fled the U.S. to live under radical Muslim regimes." —Arnold Kling

"Why do the same people who don't trust the government to spy on terrorists, lest dissenters get caught up in the web, so often also urge giving government control over our health care?" —James Taranto

"To Democrats, no policy is more important than opposition to what President Bush is for, even if it's what Democrats said they were for yesterday." —Jack Kelly

"[C]ome the November elections, the Republican Party may get exactly what it deserves from disgusted voters—namely, a swift kick in the pants. Whereas, on [the other] hand, it is necessary to ask whether the voters deserve what they'd get by giving the Republicans what they deserve." —William Murchison

"Proof that incumbent politicians are highly susceptible to corruption is the fact that the government they control is shot through with it. Yet [according to John McCain] that government should be regarded as a disinterested arbiter, untainted by politics and therefore qualified to regulate the content, quantity and timing of speech in campaigns that determine who controls the government." —George Will
