We've got only one thing to say: "Klaatu barada nikto."
Simpson quotes
I look forward to the day when I can be Republican again. I'm an Alan Simpson Republican.
Simpson
There is no "slippery slope" toward loss of liberty, only a long staircase where each step down must first be tolerated by the American people and their leaders.




Simpson Alan K. quotes
If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don't have integrity, nothing else matters.
Simpson Alan K.
An educated man is thoroughly inoculated against humbug, thinks for himself and tries to give his thoughts, in speech or on paper, some style.
Alan K. Simpson quotes
As a lifelong Republican who served in the Army in Germany, I believe it is critical that we review and overturn the ban on gay service in the military. I voted for "don't ask, don't tell." But much has changed since 1993.
My thinking shifted when I read that the military was firing translators because they are gay. According to the Government Accountability Office, more than 300 language experts have been fired under "don't ask, don't tell," including more than 50 who are fluent in Arabic. This when even Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice recently acknowledged the nation's "foreign language deficit" and how much our government needs Farsi and Arabic speakers. Is there a "straight" way to translate Arabic? Is there a "gay" Farsi? My God, we'd better start talking sense before it is too late. We need every able-bodied, smart patriot to help us win this war.
