Democracies end when power is moved farther and farther from actual democratic processes. First, the state governments (standing closest to the citizen) is diminished in favor of a centralized government that answers chiefly to bureaucrats, lobbyists, and the permanent Washington government establishment; then the elected members of Congress are diminished in favor of unelected bureaucrats in the Executive (who, in many cases, really can’t even be fired). — Ace[1]

He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country. — Dick Cheney[2] on Barack Obama

You want to be leaders, right? You sure, you sure? You better check yourself. Because leadership is nothing to play with, because people tomorrow – maybe in a few days – are going to kill their leaders who have been selling them out. That‘s why we’re in the shape we’re in right now because we had corrupt people or people who started out good and got corrupted. — Louis Farrakhan[3]

Asking a comedian to make fun of Obama is like asking a priest to mock Christ. — Greg Gutfeld[4]

Cohabitation in the United States has increased by more than 1,500 percent in the past half century. In 1960, about 450,000 unmarried couples lived together. Now the number is more than 7.5 million. The majority of young adults in their 20s will live with a romantic partner at least once, and more than half of all marriages will be preceded by cohabitation. — Meg Jay[5]

With feminists like Marcotte, using the vagina in a biologically normal way (penis + gametes = zygote = infant) is horrifying. They can endorse anything sexual except holy matrimony and traditional motherhood. Their reaction to Ann Romney (five kids) is the same as their reaction to Sarah Palin (five kids) or Karen Santorum (seven kids), and nothing can match their infinite contempt for Michelle Duggar (19 kids). — Robert Stacy McCain[6]

“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” — Ted Nugent[7]

Seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world. — Harry Reid[8]

For what Obama’s spending, there aren’t enough of them, or us, or “the rich” – and there never will be. There is only one Warren Buffett. He is the third-wealthiest person on the planet. The first is a Mexican, and beyond the reach of the U.S. Treasury. Mr. Buffett is worth $44 billion. If he donated the entire lot to the government of the United States, they would blow through it within four and a half days. Okay, so who’s the fourth-richest guy? He’s French. And the fifth guy’s a Spaniard. Number six is Larry Ellison. He’s American, but that loser is only worth $36 billion. So he and Buffett between them could keep the United States government going for a week. The next-richest American is Christy Walton of Walmart, and she’s barely a semi-Buffett. So her $25 billion will see you through a couple of days of the second week. There aren’t a lot of other semi-Buffetts, but, if you scrounge around, you can rustle up some hemi-demi-semi-Buffetts: If you confiscate the total wealth of the Forbes 400 richest Americans it comes to $1.5 trillion, which is just a little less than the Obama budget deficit for a year. — Mark Steyn[9]
