"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Attic Quote of The Day

"President Clinton's eight-year emphasis on short-term tactical politics -- focused on his own political survival -- left the party without any coherent intellectual foundation. With the advent of the Dean chairmanship, the Body Snatchers' takeover will be complete and the party of ideas will have been fully transformed to one of reflexive and strident opposition. Mr. Dean's passion and partisanship no doubt will deepen Democratic support in enclaves they already dominate. If you examine the 2004 electoral map closely, you will see that several states, including Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and New Jersey, voted for Mr. Kerry but could trend longer term toward the GOP. President Bush made gains over 2000 nationally among women, black, Latino and Catholic voters. If they cannot break free of Deanism -- i.e., strident opposition to all things Bush -- Democrats could find themselves by 2008 the party of Hollywood, Manhattan, San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Al Sharpton, Michael Moore, George Soros and high-culture media -- but not of most Americans."
