Quotes from Conservatives

Filed under: Uncategorized — trp2011 @ 1:57 PM

“Would you rather reduce deficits and interest rates by raising revenue from those who are not now paying their fair share? Or would you rather accept larger budget deficits, higher interest rates, and higher unemployment?”–President Ronald Reagan [This quote describes Reagan’s support for raising the debt ceiling. Today’s conservatives brag on being Reaganites; in this case they need to follow his lead.]

“If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it’s good enough for the children of Texas.”–Texas Gov. Miriam “Ma” Ferguson [Although she may not have initiated this statement, she used it during her leadership of Texas in the 1920s and 1930s in opposing the teaching of foreign language in schools.]

“Board of Education of Texas Approves Evolution Materials”–Newspaper Headline [Normally this policy would be a no-brainer, but in Texas it’s revolutionary. Of course, it may be overturned when new people are elected to the state school board.]

“God designed our eyes to be attracted to the woman’s body.”–Marcus Bachmann [The husband of Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann claims that he doesn’t teach “gay reparative therapy”–sort of a “pray the gay away” approach–but he certainly opposes homosexuality.]
