<BACK TO:  Party-Choosing: Find out WHICH political party best suits YOU
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream -- the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order -- or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.  Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, 'The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.' "
-- Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964
"Anyone who thinks that government -- any government -- has the right to 
disarm its citizens is not a libertarian." -- David F. Nolan, Founder, Libertarian Party
