"Defend our God-given, unalienable, equal rights to life, liberty, and property, one man-one woman marriage and the natural family, our right to keep and bear arms, our national sovereignty, security and borders, our republican form of representative self-government, and our Constitution. That's all we require. It's not complicated, and it's not too much to ask."
-- Tom Hoefling, Chairman, America's Party
“We live in an age of science and of abounding accumulation of material things. These did not create our Declaration. Our Declaration created them. The things of the spirit come first. Unless we cling to that, all our material prosperity, overwhelming though it may appear, will turn to a barren scepter in our grasp. If we are to maintain the great heritage which has been bequeathed to us, we must be like-minded as the fathers who created it. We must not sink into pagan materialism. We must cultivate the reverence which they had for the things that are holy. We must follow the spiritual and moral leadership which they showed.”
-- President Calvin Coolidge, Speech given in Philadelphia, PA, July 4, 1926, on the 150th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence
"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."
