If illegals were Republicans, Chuck Schumer would be a “Minuteman,” patrolling the Mexican border 24-7. — Ann Coulter[1]

Lawyers and juries are a mystery beyond my ability to unravel, but I have to say it’s hard to find any trace of Murder Two in the story of a neighborhood watch guy checking out a suspicious person, who took great offense (and sounded more contemptuous than fearful, judging by the testimony of the prosecution’s train-wreck star witness, his gal pal Rachel Jeantel) and got into an altercation that turned first physical, then tragic. I don’t understand the line of thinking that Zimmerman is somehow responsible for the incident by doing what neighborhood watch people (or other nervous people who live in areas with a history of crime) do. Walking around your own neighborhood and looking at someone is criminal provocation? And while he was getting “grounded and pounded” in an MMA-style beatdown, Zimmerman was supposed to do some mental calculations, conclude he’d probably survive the beating, and let the hammer blows fall? — John Hayward[2]

Republicans succeed when they are led by spokesmen who can clearly articulate a conservative philosophy, and who consistently point out the Democrats’ history of dishonesty and failure: Even if you could trust Democrats to do what they say they’re going to do (which by the way, you can’t) their policies don’t work, have never worked and never will work. People who vote Democrat in the belief that Democrats will fix their problems always end up with worse problems. — R.S. McCain[3]

Don’t just assume that folks come here and they’re automatically benefiting Africans. And that includes the United States. — Barack Obama[4]

Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over – unless we find new ways of producing energy. — Barack Obama[5]

I have just found (being First Lady) a very freeing and liberating opportunity … there are prisonlike elements, but it’s a really nice prison. You can’t complain. There are confining elements. — Michelle Obama[6].

I love the name of that party – the ‘Freedom Party. And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, ‘You know, what’s wrong with being independent,’ kind of with that libertarian streak that much of us have. In other words, we want government to back off and not infringe upon our rights. I think there will be a lot of us who start saying ‘GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation, either a Democrat or a Republican.’ Remember these are private parties, and you know, no one forces us to be enlisted in either party. — Sarah Palin[7]

According to a recent study by the New York Federal Reserve, “the share of twenty-five-year-olds with student debt has increased from just 25 percent in 2003 to 43 percent in 2012” and “student loan delinquencies have also been growing.” — Glenn Reynolds[8]

Everyone in the world is impacted by the United States’ Big Brother attitude toward the world. We need countries to say no to the United States. The United States is the dominant power in the universe, with its eavesdropping abilities, cyber abilities. And the world is in danger with our tyranny. — Oliver Stone[9]

Today’s “that goes too far” easily becomes tomorrow’s “right” with a morally vacuous media leading the charge and a morally exhausted people who are afraid to say “stop,” for fear they’ll be labeled “bigots.” — Cal Thomas[10]

Obama said he would fundamentally transform America. The time draws near to teach this usurper and charlatan the lesson our forefathers taught King George III. We will not be ruled by arrogance and edict. — Allen West[11]
