    Somehow liberals have been unable to acquire from life what conservatives seem to be endowed with at birth: namely, a healthy skepticism of the powers of government agencies to do good.
    Daniel P. Moynihan

    "The Liberals are the flying saucers of politics. No one can make head nor tail of them and they never are seen twice in the same place."
    John G. Diefenbaker

    Liberals want misery spread equally

    liberal is a person whose interests aren't at stake, at the moment.

    -Willis Player

    Conservative, n: A statesman who is enamored of existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal who wishes to replace them with others.
    Ambrose Bierce

    A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel.
    Robert Frost (1874-1963)

    Liberal Democrats care about the homeless as much as Palestinian 'leaders" care about refugees. In both cases, people are used as political tools to achieve the aspirations and enhance the power of their exploiters.

    Cal Thomas

    - Peter Brimelow

    The most fundamental fact about the ideas of the political left is that they do not work. Therefore we should not be surprised to find the left concentrated in institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive.
    - Thomas Sowell

    I wonder how many of the people who profess to believe in the leveling ideas of collectivism and egalitarianism really just believe that they themselves are good for nothing. I mean, how many leftists are animated by a quite reasonable self-loathing? In their hearts they know that they are not going to become scholars or inventors or industrialists or even ordinary good kind people. So they need a way to achieve that smugness for which the left is so justifiably famous. They need a way to achieve self-esteem without merit. Well, there is politics. In an egalitarian world everything will be controlled by politics, and politics requires no merit.
    - P.J. O'Rourke

    Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a safety hazard don't see the danger of the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use this same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like.
    Dershowitz Alan
