"The Democratic Party is made up of trial lawyers, labor unions, government employees, big city political machines, the coercive utopians, the radical environmentalists, feminists, and others who want to restructure society with tax dollars and government fiat."
Grover Norquist
(1956-) American political advocate, founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform

Reader comments about this quote:
Governments, particularly the Federal Government, in their
contemporary incarnations, exist, primarily, to subsidize sloth, immorality and irresponsibility, at the top and the bottom of our society.

Accordingly, anyone who is an exponent of the illimitable aggrandizement of government must be regarded as being utterly unworthy of being allowed access to its levers of power.
 -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    The de jure States united was intended to be a body politic with constitutionally limited authority for servants (not masters) to perform only within a certain spectrum of the laws of nature and of nature's God - that, the individual sovereign could perform for himself. The natural law / common law ordering of said body politic is entirely based on absolute sovereignty of each individual person. First, the local body politic is sovereign as it is an extension of the individual sovereign's inalienable rights. From there, the county (some exceptions like Alaska and Lousianna) is the supreme representative of the individual sovereign's inalienable rights. The sovereign State, as a nation to the world is sovereign as it is the extended representation of individual sovereign's rights. When those nations/States unite, the following entity exists as sovereign by individual sovereign's extended inaleinable rights through the several involved States. It remains an inalienable right for the individual sovereign to associate/disassociate with any entity he chooses. The Democratic Party does not recognize individual sovereignty (with or without inalienable rights), liberty, natural law or a constitutionally limiting body politic of servants. The State is an inorganic phantasm that has NO authority but, duties only. When that phantasm becomes a hegemonic ensign where person(s) (individual or in concert) participate in complelled compliance, government licensing, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, etc.), alienation of nature's endowed rights, and a totalitarian despotism or tyranny, the Representative Republic of servants exists no more.

    A great quote that is so true.

    The Republican party "does not recognize individual sovereignty, liberty, natural law" either, Mike, as we have well seen during Republican majorities in Congress. 'Parties' are collectivist in nature -- free individuals have NO representation. Party politics is all about compromise, which is why applying the same reasoning to the sovereign individual guarantees the loss of his sovereignty, that's the compromise. And year after year, compromise after compromise, the people find themselves beholden to the dictates of Rome, for their own good.

    There can be no compromise with the principles of Freedom and Responsibility. There can be no compromise between Truth and Falsehood. There can be no compromise with natural law. There is no compromise in dishonor -- the fruits are guaranteed.

    Archer, you are absolutely right and I know I've been very consistent on those points concerning the Republican Party - as well as conservatives. Here, I just happen to be directly addressing the quote. The Republicans tend to be a little more fascist while the Democrats tend to be a little bit more communist.
