This is one hell of a quote:

Our government is too big. It is too inefficient. It is too intrusive. It needs to do less, and it needs to do a considerably better job of executing those functions it does carry out. The struggle to take us from where we are today to a future in which a leaner, flatter government allows its citizens to truly live free, is the defining battle of our time. Nothing less than the definition of what it means to be “an American” is at stake.

This comes from this piece here:

WHERE’S SAM WHEN YOU NEED HIM?

…from Ted Cruz:

“The people to whom I believe I am accountable are the men and women in Texas… who knocked on doors, who made phone calls, who stood up and said ‘Please, help turn this country around.”

via Palin Rips ‘GOP High Roller Machine': ‘Their Money Can’t Buy Elections Anymore’.

…comes from Michelle Malkin’s piece The Amnesty Mob vs. America.

The whole article is a good read.

Here’s the quote:

Rubio, Ryan and other Republicans who’ve made common cause with these welfare-state goons have betrayed fundamental principles of limited government and the rule of law. They’ve allied themselves with the mob. There’s nothing, not one thing, “conservative” about mass illegal alien amnesty. It’s the complete Chicago-ization of America.

…comes from an American Thinker article. It’s about the history that I watched. Senator Rand Paul has got a pair of balls that Congress hasn’t seen in decades. America will not tolerate a tyrant, nor will it tolerate the loss of freedom.

I stand with Rand!

The quote:

Rand advanced his strategic goal. The entire filibuster episode portrayed a radically different image of Barack Obama. Even among low information voters, Obama’s public image just took a serious hit. Instead of being the cool guy who loves you, Obama is now the tyrant who reserves the right to kill you any time he feels like it. On an emotional level, Rand Paul undid in one day years of spin about Obama.

This comes from Rand Paul Shifts Political Orbit.

Government by the people.

…is excellent, and there’s two of them.

“If you took every single penny that Warren Buffett has, it’d pay for 4-1/2 days of the US government. This tax-the-rich won’t work. The problem here is the government is way bigger than even the capacity of the rich to sustain it. The Buffett Rule would raise $3.2 billion a year, and take 514 years just to pay off Obama’s 2011 budget deficit.” -Mark Steyn

“If you think only the wealthy are going to be hit by what’s coming, think again. The fiscal cliff is going to drag everyone else down with it. It’s just the warm-up for the total societal collapse of the United States.” -Mark Steyn

Got them from here.

…of the day! Wow! Two in one day. I know I can quote people all day, but this is right there along the lines of our previous QOTD.

I give you this gem:

“The media’s overabundant love affair with the Obamas has become increasingly blatant as this election draws nearer. Scrutinizing Mrs. Romney for a fashion choice that cost considerably less than that of the First Lady is yet another example of the media being purely sanctimonious,” former political publicist Angie Meyer told FoxNews.com. “The media continues to relish their roles as liberal bullies, and have relentlessly bullied the Romneys from the beginning. It is pure hypocrisy at its finest.”

That comes from this piece:

Ann Romney slammed for $990 Shirt, Michelle Obama praised for $6,800 jacket

Back in May, Ann Romney, wife of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, wore a $990 Reed Krakoff silk shirt for a media appearance. The item of clothing set off a media firestorm, with the Romneys widely accused of being “out of touch” with average Americans.

In particular, the Washington Post wrote that the $990 blouse “will not help her husband change those perceptions, no matter how many Laundromat photo ops are on the campaign’s itinerary.”

Fast forward to last Friday, when First Lady Michelle Obama attended an Olympics reception for heads of state at Buckingham Palace, donning a J. Mendel cap sleeve jacket from the 2013 Resort collection.

The price-tag? $6,800.

“a snake can swim underwater a very long time, just like a fish. But eventually, it must come up for air. Why? Because it is not a fish — it is a snake.”

Here’s the story:

Obama Keeps on Conning America

By Lloyd Marcus

My 84-year-old dad has nuggets of wisdom which he forgets he has shared with me numerous times.  One is about deception.  Dad said a snake can swim underwater a very long time, just like a fish.  But eventually, it must come up for air.  Why?  Because it is not a fish — it is a snake.

Obama deceived millions to win the White House.  All the obvious clues into the true nature of the first black presidential candidate were ignored by the media.  Voters were duped into believing Obama when he presented himself as a moderate, a messiah, “the one we have been waiting for.”

Early into his presidency, Obama came up for air, exposing his great deception.  Every day, with unbridled arrogance, the handsome, deceptive beast reveals more and more of his despicable agenda hidden just beneath the surface.

Barack Hussein Obama is not presidential, nor is he a moderate — far from either, in fact.  This man is a far-left, radical, anti-America, plain-old-Chicago-thug politician.

And the money quote: “President Obama attacks success, and therefore under Obama we have less success.”

This comes from Rep. Allen West:

During the question and answer portion of President Obama’s NATO summit press conference today he made an interesting statement. He alluded to the fact that the Presidential election will be about who will ensure success for Americans from top to bottom, that everyone has a fair shot. It is clear that Obama is redefining the words of Thomas Jefferson who articulated that our unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness come from our Creator, not man, nor government. Benjamin Franklin stated that it is the pursuit of happiness and it is incumbent upon the American individual to make that chase and catch it. America is about individual sovereignty to pursue their happiness. It is not about government driven collective subjugation in an attempt to guarantee happiness. Sorry President Obama, we will not allow you to redefine America, nor the American Dream!

This is from Thomas Sowell. I really like this guy. He’s all over it when it comes to the economy and other issues of the day. Here’s a quote from his Random Thoughts post over at Townhall.

He has more at this post, go enjoy a smart man’s comments…

What do you call it when someone steals someone else’s money secretly? Theft. What do you call it when someone takes someone else’s money openly by force? Robbery. What do you call it when a politician takes someone else’s money in taxes and gives it to someone who is more likely to vote for him? Social Justice.
