Famous quotes containing the words conservative government, conservative and/or government:

    A Conservative government is an organised hypocrisy.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)

    Almost always tradition is nothing but a record and a machine-made imitation of the habits that our ancestors created. The average conservative is a slave to the most incidental and trivial part of his forefathers’ glory—to the archaic formula which happened to express their genius or the eighteenth-century contrivance by which for a time it was served.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)

    Not only our future economic soundness but the very soundness of our democratic institutions depends on the determination of our government to give employment to idle men.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)
