Republicans (USA) Quotations

The king-times are fast finishing. There will be blood shed like water, and tears like mist; but the peoples will conquer in the end. I shall not live to see it, but I foresee it.

No one has ever seen a Republican mass meeting that was devoid of the perception of the ludicrous.

The Republicans hardly need a party and the cumbersome cadre of low-level officials that form one; they have a bankroll as large as the Pentagon’s budget, dozens of fatted PACs, and the well-advertised support of the Christian deity.

People think they have taken quite an extraordinarily bold step forward when they have rid themselves of belief in hereditary monarchy and swear by the democratic republic. In reality, however, the state is nothing but a machine for the oppression of one class by another, and indeed in the democratic republic no less than in the monarchy.

The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind.

The republic, as I at least understand it, means association, of which liberty is only an element, a necessary antecedent. It means association, a new philosophy of life, a divine Ideal that shall move the world, the only means of regeneration vouchsafed to the human race.

The Republicans have a “me too” candidate running on a “yes but” platform, advised by a “has been” staff.

Grant me thirty years of equal division of inheritances and a free press, and I will provide you with a republic.

Yes, I am a thorough republican. No other form of government is so favorable to the growth of art.

Republicans study the financial pages of the newspaper. Democrats put them in the bottom of the bird cage.
