    My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.

    Being married is kind of like being a Ken-doll; you don't get to dress yourself anymore.
    Grover Norquist


    Every time you cut programs, you take away a person who has a vested interest in high taxes and you put him on the tax rolls and make him a taxpayer. A farmer on subsidies is part welfare bum, whereas a free-market farmer is a small businessman with a gun.
    Grover Norquist

    The statists want to control the economy.

    Obsessions turn people off.

    The more one knows about Grover Norquist the more likely one is to become a liberal.

    Norquist might be an idiot, but I can hold up plenty of idiot liberals as examples of why everyone should be a conservative. You would definitely be on the list.

    What he stands for, his values (so to speak).

    He claims to support individual freedom and his support sets the poor, aged, infirm free to suffer and to die.

    He claims by removing the safety net, and saving the taxpayer money, these same people will get jobs and become taxpayers, but never explains how.

    In fact many of his claims are unsubtantiated or based on revised history (for evidence those interested need only google "Grovere Norquist Utube")

    One link is attached for a brief bio, of course there are others and if there is a hue and cry as to the source I'll be happy to prove more.

    In fact I don't hate Norquist, I simply find avarice, bigotry, censorship and demoguery distasteful; I recognize how demagouges who have risen to power (behind and in front of the curtain) have historically brought ruin to the many and riches to the few.

    I simply feel people ought to understand where that the beliefs they hold originated, for his words are parroted everyday on this message board and echoed repeatedly.

    PS, Windbag, if you have plenty of reasons why my ideas and opinions are the reason for people to become conservative, please post them. I'd be happy to debate my ideas with your opinions.

    He's a conservative.

    That's pretty much all it takes.
