I didn't change. The Democratic Party slid to the left from right under me.
Affirmative action is a stain on the American soul. (Heston famously marched/supported the 1960s Civil Rights cause 'before it was fashionable')
Well, we have certainly produced great art before... In my view, there are any number of areas of government which tax money should not be spent.
Somewhere in the busy pipeline of public funding is sure to be a demand from a disabled lesbian on welfare that the Metropolitan Opera stage her rap version of Carmen as translated into Ebonics.
Mr. Clinton, sir, America didn't trust you with our health-care system. America didn't trust you with gays in the military. America doesn't trust you with our 21-year-old daughters, and we sure, Lord, don't trust you with our guns.

I don`t know the man - never met him, never even spoken to him. But I feel sorry for George Clooney... one day he may get Alzheimer`s disease. I served my country in World War II. I survived that - I guess I can survive some bad words from this fellow.
... I simply cannot stand by and watch a right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States come under attack from those who either can't understand it, don't like the sound of it, or find themselves too philosophically squeamish to see why it remains the first among equals: Because it is the right we turn to when all else fails.
