"We protect the right of pacifists and other anti-war militants to assemble and advance their cause. But I donít respect such people and I donít shrink from exposing their ideas as destructive and suicidal. Pacifists are my enemy because wittingly or not, they serve the purposes of my enemy and jeopardize my freedom."
Rosen quotes
Conservatives believe in peace through strength. Liberals believe in peace through cooperation and good will.
Rosen
Conservatives believe in limited government. Liberals believe in intrusive government when required to achieve societal needs. (Exception: social-issues conservatives advocate government intrusion on matters of abortion, drugs and pornography.)




Rosen Mike quotes
Conservatives are concerned about the production of wealth. Liberals are concerned about the redistribution of it.
Rosen Mike
"Non-supply siders: Concern themselves with 'How to divide up a [fixed] pie'. Supply siders: Concern themselves with 'How to make a bigger pie.'"
Mike Rosen quotes
"One of the hackneyed liberal complaints goes something like this: 'Bush is the first president in history to cut taxes during a war.' Nonsense. Bush didnít cut taxes; he cut tax rates across the board - on income, dividends and capital gains. And thatís precisely why tax revenues have soared. When a department store wants to make more money, it doesnít raise its prices, it cuts them and announces a big sale. If you want more work and investment, you hold a sale on economic activity by cutting tax rates, thereby reducing the cost of productive activity and increasing the prospect of after-tax returns on work and investment."
Mike Rosen
Conservatives believe in free markets. Liberals believe in government controls and central planning.
Rosen Mike quotes
Conservatives believe that some problems have no solution, that they can only be mitigated at best. Liberals believe that most every problem has a government solution.
Rosen
Conservatives believe in individual freedom and responsibility. Liberals believe in sacrificing individual freedom for socially desirable outcomes. Liberals believe that one of government's primary roles is social engineering.
Rosen Mike
Conservatives are nationalists. Liberals hope for world government.
Mike Rosen
Donít tell me you are a moderate. Moderate is an adjective. It is a qualifier. You may be a moderate conservative, a moderate democrat, or a moderate drinker but it doesnít tell me what you believe in. Itís not a philosophy. Unless all you believe in is moderation for the sake of moderation. Grow up! You canít be a good egg all of your life. Someday you have to either hatch or rot.




Mike Rosen quotes
"Television is to news as a bumper sticker is to Shakespeare. I remember hearing an analogy once that went something like that. Your typical nightly, 35-minute TV news broadcast is a headline service with pictures. Five minutes of police-blotter reporting - fires, murders, car accidents, etc. - five minutes of human-interest stories and small talk, five minutes of weather, five minutes of sports, ten minutes of commercials, and maybe a minute or two for business, science, politics, and affairs of the world."
Mike Rosen
"I don't believe that [blacks in New Orleans immediately prior to Hurricane Katrina]couldn't afford a bus ticket out of New Orleans for a minute- they might not be able to drive out in a brand new Lincoln, but they could afford a bus ticket."
Rosen quotes
Conservatives believe that human nature is what makes us imperfectible. Liberals believe that human nature can be changed and perfected.
