"I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw
when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept,
God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports
that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors
and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here."

Ronald Reagan

In every country there comes a time when patriotic men and women must stand up and speak out
to protect their own individual rights and the overall health of the nation. In our country, this is such a time.
It is time for all people of good will—and our country is filled with people of good will—to take a stand and plant a flag.

The Wall Street Journal

Democratic leaders are realizing they not only lack a mandate for their revolution; they don’t have the votes to pass the controversial measures with nice-sounding names they’ve offered.

I want to say something about the meaning of 1/6 and why it is so important we set ourselves to knowing all that happened that day.

It’s not just “the past” and we can’t just “move on.” It’s a story that’s still happening.

The Boston Globe

The state's already overflowing coffers will soon receive billions from the federal government. Instead of raising taxes, the focus should be on creating jobs.

"This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical,
but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand.
It never did and it never will."

Frederick Douglas
