The Great Society

"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference."

"I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."

    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908-1973)

"So this is how liberty dies - with thunderous applause."

"What if the democracy we thought we were serving no longer exists, and the Republic has become the very evil we’ve been fighting to destroy?”

    Padmé Amidala, Star Wars III, “The Revenge of the Sith”

Thomas Sowell: The Libertarian Titan


"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today."

"It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it."

"It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong."

"Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good."

"The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department."

"The word 'racism' is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything - and demanding evidence makes you a 'racist'."

"Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it."
