The State Department is infested with communists. I have here in my hand a list of 205—a list of names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department.
Joseph McCarthy

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

If a political entity does not have its basis in the dedication to support a just and moral cause, then it is not a political group; rather, it is merely an attempt to gain control.
Should any political party attempt to abolish social security unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group of course that believes you can do these things. Among them are a few other Texas oil millionaires and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

Why party like it is 1999 when you can party like it is your birthday?

'Celebrate like today is the day to commemorate your own special occasion!'
While I cannot take the time to name all the men in the State Department who have been named as members of the Communist Party and members of a spy ring, I have here in my hand a list of 205.
Joseph McCarthy

While I cannot take the time to mention all the individuals from the State Department who have been recognized as members of an espionage organization and partakers in a Communist conspiracy, I presently possess a document indicating 205 such names.
What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.
Joseph Goebbels

The pig is the most shameless animal on the face of the earth. It is the only animal that invites its friends to have sex with its mate. In America, most people consume pork. Many times after dance parties, they have swapping of wives; many say 'you sleep with my wife and I will sleep with your wife.' If you eat pigs then you behave like pigs.
Zakir Naik

However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
George Washington

Our party must continue to strike fear in the heart of the white man, our real enemy!
Robert Mugabe

Our faction must persist in instilling terror in the white man, our genuine adversary!
Never arbitrate. Arbitration allows a third party to determine your destiny. It is a resort of the weak.
Attila the Hun

Never submit to arbitration. Allowing a third party to dictate your future is an act of surrender. It is a sign of helplessness.
We must practice revolutionary democracy in every aspect of our Party life. Every responsible member must have the courage of his responsibilities, exacting from others a proper respect for his work and properly respecting the work of others. Hide nothing from the masses of our people. Tell no lies. Expose lies whenever they are told. Mask no difficulties, mistakes, failures. Claim no easy victories.
Amilcar Cabral

Let me be candid, my party is full of racists
Lawrence Wilkerson

My party is rife with bigots.
I don’t like to badmouth people.
But I’m the head of a monarchy that began in the ninth century,
and I’m apparently more modern than Chris Christie.
I know he has to appeal to the crazy right-wingers in his party,
but the fact is,
he’s not as forward-thinking as an eighty-seven-year-old lady who wears a crown on her head.
It’s pathetic.
Queen Elizabeth II

In 1956, I shall not go to the polls. I have not registered. I believe that democracy has so far disappeared in the United States that no 'two evils' exist. There is but one evil party with two names, and it will be elected despite all I can do or say.
W. E. B. Du Bois

Whoop it up for liberty! After Ireland is free, says the patriot who won't touch socialism, we will protect all classes, and if you won't pay your rent you will be evicted same as now. But the evicting party, under command of the sheriff, will wear green uniforms and the Harp without the Crown, and the warrant turning you out on the roadside will be stamped with the arms of the Irish Republic. Now, isn't that worth fighting for?
James Connolly

A good city is like a good party - people stay longer than really necessary, because they are enjoying themselves.
Jan Gehl

A good city is like a delightful gathering - people linger longer than necessary, as they are having an enjoyable time.
I value my core fans I got from the hood. I think a lot of things might hit home with them, like problems with the law or how I talk about partying - all the different topics I cover when I do rap. But I also value my suburban fans who take a liking to my music and like the way I change cadences. I appreciate all of them cause both types of fans push me to record all the time, both push me to give my best when I do a show. Both push me to be the best rapper and not just do it as a hobby, but do it as a job and take it seriously and put pride in it.
Gucci Mane

There is nothing I dread so much as the division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our constitution.
John Adams

All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.
Mao Zedong

'All political authority originates from the muzzle of a firearm. The communist organization must possess all firearms, thereby preventing any weapon from being deployed to regulate the party.'
Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day be day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except the endless present in which the party is always right.
George Orwell

My loyalty to my party ends where my loyalty to my country begins.
Manuel L. Quezon

My allegiance to my political association halts where my allegiance to my nation commences.
Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
Ronald Reagan

Republicans think daily is a celebration, but democrats regard it as tax day.
There are three things we have to let go of. The first is the compulsion to be successful. Second, is the compulsion to be right-especially theologically right. (That's merely an ego trip, and because of this "need" churches split in half, with both parties prisoners of their own egos.) Finally, there is the compulsion to be powerful, to have everything under control.
Richard Rohr

No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
Aneurin Bevan

No amount of flattery, enticement, or attempts at moral or social persuasion can remove from within me a vehement loathing for the Tory Party. As far as I am concerned, they are more contemptible than pests.
Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Mania in persons is a rarity - but amongst collectives, assemblies, countries and periods of time, it is the norm.
Now back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program.
Ronald Reagan

That's not for me to decide, that's for the voters to decide and many of them are saying, this slavish adherence to the cult of the free market that the Republican party has followed for decades isn't what we want anymore. That's not a question for me, that's up to them.
Milo Yiannopoulos

The Republican and Democratic parties, or, to be more exact, the Republican-Democratic party, represent the capitalist class in the class struggle. They are the political wings of the capitalist system and such differences as arise between them relate to spoils and not to principles.
Eugene V. Debs

Democrats work to help people who need help. That other party, they work for people who don't need help. That's all there is to it.
Harry S. Truman

Democrats strive to assist those in need, while the other faction works for those who are already well-off. That about sums it up.
Nobody should have any illusions. The United States has essentially a one-party system and the ruling party is the business party.
Noam Chomsky

No one should harbor any false hopes. In effect, the United States is a single-party nation and the incumbent power is that of business.
There are but two parties now: traitors and patriots. And I want hereafter to be ranked with the latter and, I trust, the stronger party.
Ulysses S. Grant

'Now there are only two factions - turncoats and defenders of the nation. I wish to join the latter class, if possible, and hopefully become a part of the more influential group.'
Imagine a city where graffiti wasn't illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall - it's wet.

A government or a party gets the people it deserves and sooner or later a people gets the government it deserves.
Frantz Fanon

A political system reflects the values of its citizens, and eventually citizens are rewarded or punished with a government that matches their beliefs.
When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An army without profanity couldn't fight its way out of a piss-soaked paper bag. As for the types of comments I make, sometimes I just, By God, get carried away with my own eloquence.
George S. Patton

A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery. It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.
Mao Zedong

The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It's for you I created the universe. I love you. There's only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you'll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.
Frederick Buechner

The complete emancipation of women from the ties which held them back in the past, during the ages of despotism and ignorance, is a basic aim of the Party and the Revolution. Women make up one half of society. Our society will remain backward and in chains unless its women are liberated, enlightened and educated.
Saddam Hussein

Some of y'all are not where you want to be in life, yet you party every weekend. What is it that you’re celebrating?

'Despite not being where you desire to be, many of you still revel every weekend. What is there to rejoice?'
I am of the opinion that all who can should vote for the most intelligent, honest, and conscientious men eligible to office, irrespective of former party opinions, who will endeavour to make the new constitutions and the laws passed under them as beneficial as possible to the true interests, prosperity, and liberty of all classes and conditions of the people.
Robert E. Lee

I was a geek who thought I was cool. I didn't hang out with a particular clique, but with different people from different cliques. I was a total nerd, trying to fit in. Luckily, I found music and that was my niche. That sorta took me out of my geekdom. I was never invited to parties as a teenager - I turned up with the popular people. That's where the lyrics to 'Guilty By Association' came from.
Chester Bennington

Our movement took a grip on cowardly Marxism and from it extracted the meaning of socialism. It also took from the cowardly middle-class parties their nationalism. Throwing both into the cauldron of our way of life there emerged, as clear as a crystal, the synthesis -- German National Socialism.
Hermann Goring

This ain't no garden party, brother, thisis wrestling, where only the strongest survive.
Ric Flair

This is no stroll in the park, comrade, this is gladiatorial combat where only the toughest make it out alive.
The Communist threat from without must not blind us to the Communist threat from within. The latter is reaching into the very heart of America through its espionage agents and a cunning, defiant, and lawless communist party, which is fanatically dedicated to the Marxist cause of world enslavement and destruction of the foundations of our republic.
J. Edgar Hoover

I am not afraid of anybody. This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell.
Maxine Waters

I am not intimidated by anyone. This is a rigorous challenge. You must not be cowed. You must not be terrified. And, in my opinion, the Tea Party can go to perdition.
Colored students at the University of Minnesota partying with (white) female students, smoking [marijuana] and getting their sympathy with stories of racial persecution. Result: pregnancy.
Harry J. Anslinger

Multicultural pupils at the University of Minnesota carousing with Caucasian coeds, using cannabis and obtaining their compassion through narratives of racial injustice. Consequence: maternity.
Pay attention America. Third party might not win it this year, but we could be seeing the shift away from a two party system unfolding.
Jill Stein

'Be mindful, U.S.A. A third party might not prevail in 2020, but we could be witnessing the progression away from a two-party arrangement emerging.'
The political lesson of Watergate is this: Never again must America allow an arrogant, elite guard of political adolescents to by-pass the regular party organization and dictate the terms of a national election.
Gerald R. Ford

I have no private purpose to accomplish, no party objectives to build up, no enemies to punish-nothing to serve but my country.
Zachary Taylor

I have no personal motives to realize, no partisan ambitions to promote, no adversaries to exact vengeance against-my only priority is my nation.
I hope that people will see that we don't have to sit by the sidelines and watch as the two major parties limit their choices to slightly different flavors of the status quo. It is, in fact, possible to join the fray, stand up for principles and offer a real alternative.
Gary Johnson
