“Conservatism is the politics of reality.”

"One must bear in mind that the expansion of federal activity is a form of eating for politicians."

"The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry."

"There is an inverse relationship between reliance on the state and self-reliance."

“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”

“Conservatives should be adamant about the need for the reappearance of Judeo-Christianity in the public square.”
"Christianity is the hallmark of civilization."
