Quote of the Day

You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream—the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order—or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path.
—Ronald Reagan, stumping for Barry Goldwater in 1964.

My, oh my, how far the Republican Party has come. Would today's GOP welcome the Gipper with open arms, or would they smear him as a soft-on-terror, cut-and-run liberal Democrat? It is, as Dick Cheney would say, a "no-brainer".
