Gore Vidal

American writer
There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party...and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt - until recently... and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties.More Gore Vidal quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Writing fiction has become a priestly business in countries that have lost their faith.More Gore Vidal quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Democracy is something America has never really practiced. Because the Founding Fathers hated two things: monarchy and democracy. They wanted a republic, a replica of the Roman or Venetian republics. They didn't even like the etymology of the word "democracy."More Gore Vidal quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
By the time a man gets to be presidential material, he's been bought ten times over.More Gore Vidal quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Although drugs are immoral and must be kept from the young, thousands of schools pressure parents to give the drug Ritalin to any lively child who may, sensibly, show signs of boredom in his classroom. Ritalin renders the child docile if not comatose. Side effects? "Stunted growth, facial tics, agitation and aggression, insomnia, appetite loss, headaches, stomach pains and seizures." Marijuana would be far less harmful.More Gore Vidal quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
