Contents: Foreword / Sean Hannity --
Freedom works --
Macho hurts --
Tattoos last forever --
You can't stand on principle with feet of clay --
You can't get ahead while you're getting even --
If you love peace more than freedom, you lose --
If you demagogue it, you own it --
You can't get your finger on the problem if you've got it to the wind --
The politics of greed is wrapped in the language of love --
There is nothing so arrogant as a self-righteous income redistributor --
A little man can whip a big man every time if he's in the right and keeps on a-comin' --
No one spends someone else's money as wisely as he spends his own --
If it's about your power, you lose --
If you make a deal with the devil, you are the junior partner --
If you want the divorce, you give up the house --
Politics sooner or later makes a fool out of everyone --
Political ambition is a great compromiser --
A man will fight like a cornered rat if his chicken manure is at stake --
It's a wonder how much will get done when people are concerned with who gets the credit --
Insecurity is an audacity in light of the Lord's promise: "I will never leave you nor forsake you" --
Liberals love feelings too much, conservatives love facts too much --
If you insist on center stage, you get the tomatoes --
Conservatives believe it when they see it, liberals see it when they believe it --
Conservatives are afraid the public will not understand, liberals are afraid the public will understand --
The greater the pretension, the greater the hypocrisy.
Responsibility: Dick Armey.
