"What makes me get up to do this? I believe in democracy, and that's not a cliche. I believe in America. We are a nation that allows for the individual to flourish without the imposition of the government. Ironically, in some ways, that statement used to be the Republican philosophy. What's different is I think the government also represents a national community and the government is a safety net for that national community."

Mark Karlin, in a May 20, 2005 interview with The Media Giraffe Project
