30 FUN QUOTES FOR YOU!

Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative. - John Stuart Mill

The country has become much more conservative, partly because it has been taken over by the religious right. - Bill Maher

The central conservative truth is that it is culture, not politics, that determines the success of a society. The central liberal truth is that it is politics that can change a society and save it from itself. - Daniel Patrick Moynihan

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward. - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

A conservative is someone who believes in reform. But not now. - Mort Sahl

A conservative is a man who sits and thinks, mostly sits. - Woodrow Wilson

Come, come, my conservative friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles and see that the world is moving. - Elizabeth Cady Stanton

If you're a conservative, why aren't you behind conserving the land. - Ken Kesey

A conservative is a man who will not look at a new moon out of respect for that "ancient institution" of the old one. - Douglas Jerrold

We've not had one Republican president in 34 years balance the budget. You can't trust right-wing Republicans with your money. You ought to hire someone who has balanced a budget. I'm much more conservative with money than George Bush is. - Howard Dean

A man with both feet planted firmly in the air can be safely called a liberal as opposed to the conservative, who has both feet planted firmly in his mouth. - Jacques Barzun

A conservative is a fellow who thinks a rich man should have a square deal. - Frank Dane

The biases the media has are much bigger than conservative or liberal. They're about getting ratings, about making money, about doing stories that are easy to cover. - Al Franken

To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. - Al Franken

A conserative believes nothing should be done for the first time. - Thomas Fuller

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. - John Kenneth Galbraith

In the United States I have always believed that there was a big difference between Conservative and Stupid. Boy is it getting harder to prove that one by the minute. - Roy Mercer

Our "neoconservatives" are neither new nor conservative, but are as old as Bablyon and as evil as Hell. - Edward Abbey

A conservative is one who admires radicals centuries after they are dead. - Leo Rosten

It's an infinite creative universe to explore, so why chase conservative options? - Yahoo Serious

I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them. - Adlai Stevenson

What is conservativism? Is it not the adherence to the old and tried against the new and untried? - Abraham Lincoln

The Democrats seem to be basically nicer people, but they have demonstrated time and again that they have the management skills of celery. They're the kind of people who'd stop to help you change a flat, but would somehow manage to set your car on fire. I would be reluctant to entrust them with a Cuisinart, let alone the economy. The Republicans, on the other hand, would know how to fix your tire, but they wouldn't bother to stop because they'd want to be on time for Ugly Pants Night at the country club. - Dave Barry

When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it? - Eleanor Roosevelt

A conservative is a man who is too cowardly to fight and too fat to run. - Elbert Hubbard

The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. - G.K. Chesterton

Liberals feel unworthy of their possessions. Conservatives feel they deserve everything they've stolen. - Mort Sahl

The Democrats are the party of government activism, the party that says government can make you richer, smarter, taller, and get the chickweed out of your lawn. Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work, and then get elected and prove it. - P.J. O'Rourke

Guns have little or nothing to do with juvenile violence. The causes of youth violence are working parents who put their kids into daycare, the teaching of evolution in the schools, and working mothers who take birth control pills. - Tom Delay [on causes of the Columbine High School massacre, 1999]

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. - Dwight D. Eisenhower [1953]

Thanks for posting that. Great stuff. I especially liked the Eisenhower one...it would have actually been a good lead paragraph for the piece I did today!

I like the Fuller quote too, M. I think it is very illustrative of the stubbornness some conservatives show in many areas, not just in politics.

I liked the Eisenhower one a lot too, J. I kind of saved it for the last! Problem is that nowadays things have shifted so far to the right that Eisenhower would probably have to run as a Democrat if he wanted to get elected. And he would be considered way to the left by a lot of today's "conservatives".

Any military man that would disagree is a war monger.

Al Franken nailed it! Yes, al Qaeda uses too much oil in their hummus. That's the crux of the problem, and that's where we need to focus all of our efforts.

I go more for the Al Franken quotes, especially the one about the hummus.
