Some men know that a light touch of the tongue, running from a woman’s toes to her ears, lingering in the softest way possible in various places in between, given often enough and sincerely enough, would add immeasurably to world peace.
Marianne Williamson

We Liberals like to think our thoughts aren’t controlled. We pride ourselves on our independent thinking. We know we shouldn’t believe everything we read. We realize the media is skewed, we know it’s owned by a small group of people, we realize it’s biased, etc.
Marianne Williamson

As we become purer channels for God’s light, we develop an appetite for the sweetness that is possible in this world. A miracle worker is not geared toward fighting the world that is, but toward creating the world that could be.

Marianne Williamson

Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.

Marianne Williamson

Maturity includes the recognition that no one is going to see anything in us that we don’t see in ourselves. Stop waiting for a producer. Produce yourself.
Marianne Williamson

In our natural state, we are glorious beings. In the world of illusion, we are lost and imprisoned, slaves to our appetites and our will to false power.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

I’ve never seen service as separate from my spiritual practice or my spiritual teaching.
Marianne Williamson

Trying to suppress or eradicate symptoms on the physical level can be extremely important, but there’s more to healing than that; dealing with psychological, emotional and spiritual issues involved in treating sickness is equally important.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Love Quotes
We need to shift from an economic organizing principle for human civilization, to a humanitarian organizing principle. Making money more important than your own children is a pathological way for an individual to run their affairs, and it’s a pathological way for a society to run its affairs.

Marianne Williamson

People crave comfort, people crave connection, people crave community.
Marianne Williamson

I believe that hunger for a ‘lost dimension’ of experience is a natural yearning in all of us, and it doesn’t go away just because we ignore it. It is evidenced among other places in the millions of children and adults who obsessively read the ‘Harry Potter’ books. It is said that fiction is where someone gets to tell the truth.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

In Taoist philosophy, ‘yin’ is the feminine principle, representing the forces of earth, while ‘yang’ is the masculine principle, representing spirit.
Marianne Williamson

Today’s average American is more apt to rebel against a tennis shoe not coming in the right color than against the slow erosion of our democratic freedom.

Marianne Williamson

Priests, ministers and rabbis are asking where the children are going. Slowly but surely, they’re seeing that people are hungry for something beyond the doctrine. It isn’t that they don’t want religious truth. But they want the mystical core, the heart of the religious truth.
Marianne Williamson

Relationships are eternal. The ‘separation’ is another chapter in the relationship. Often, letting go of the old form of the relationship becomes a lesson in pure love much deeper than any would have learned had the couple stayed together.
Marianne Williamson

When you turn your life over to God, you don’t give up the drama; you give up the cheap drama.
Marianne Williamson

The Western world is having an identity crisis.
Marianne Williamson

There’s nothing more powerful than a woman who knows how to contain her power and not let it leak, standing firmly within it in mystery and silence. A woman who talks too much sheds her allure.
Marianne Williamson

I think of prayer as a spiritual lifeline back to where I most want to be.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

Any conversation which does not include the context of the journey of the heart is by definition untrue to who we are as human beings.
Marianne Williamson

We’re often afraid of looking at our shadow because we want to avoid the shame or embarrassment that comes along with admitting mistakes.
Marianne Williamson

One day I looked at something in myself that I had been avoiding because it was too painful. Yet once I did, I had an unexpected surprise. Rather than self-hatred, I was flooded with compassion for myself because I realized the pain necessary to develop that coping mechanism to begin with.
Marianne Williamson

America has swerved from its ethical center.
Marianne Williamson

To me, drone use is a moral issue.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

Look at Fukushima. Should we or should we not agree with the U.S. government that none of that radioactive energy is making its way here? Hello!
Marianne Williamson

Christ is born into the world through each of us.
Marianne Williamson

Politics is in a crisis because it’s separated from our deep humanity.
Marianne Williamson

In the absence of love, we began slowly but surely to fall apart.

Marianne Williamson

When God created the world, he didn’t draw a line between Canada and America.
Marianne Williamson

The fact that people in Hollywood are open to what I teach is not because they’re more desperate than anyone else, but because they’re more touched by it. That’s not their weakness. It’s their strength!
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

If anything is naive and lightweight, it’s the traditional political conversation.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

We have allowed an unholy alliance of government – the new monarchy – and corporate influence – the new aristocracy – to take control of events in a way that would have made our Founders shudder.
Marianne Williamson

Abraham Lincoln went through 12 generals before he got Ulysses S. Grant. He had never done a Civil War before.
Marianne Williamson

A lot of my traditional audience does not appreciate my foray into politics.

The top of one mountain is always the bottom of another.
Marianne Williamson

Charles Manson ate apples. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to.
Marianne Williamson

The same group of New York pseudo-intellectuals who’ve put down prayer are the same ones who put down L.A.
Marianne Williamson

The Latin root of the word ‘politics’ means ‘of the people.’ Politics is about something bigger than electoral politics; in that sense, I feel like I’m already involved.
Marianne Williamson

When I was just writing books and giving lectures, if people disagreed, they just didn’t buy your book or attend your lectures. But, if you’re leading a congregation, people feel they have the right to tell you what you should or shouldn’t talk about. And that hasn’t always been easy for me.
Marianne Williamson

I’m an author. And writers write books. And writing books is a full-time career.
Marianne Williamson

Many people are despairing of the possibility of finding love. And some of the people who are despairing the most are in their thirties and forties and looking just great.
Marianne Williamson

The ego mind both professes its desire for love and does everything possible to repel it, or if it gets here anyway, to sabotage it. That is why dealing with issues like control, anger, and neediness is the most important work in preparing ourselves for love.
Marianne Williamson

It doesn’t take money to turn off the television and cultivate real bonding time.
Marianne Williamson

Love is all around us all the time. Love is the ethers that we swim in. Love is the amniotic fluid of the soul.
Marianne Williamson

In my first book, ‘A Return to Love’, I wrote about things in the outer world that need to change – how we need to ameliorate deep poverty, heal the earth, end war.
Marianne Williamson

Now if you know what makes one person’s life change, then you know what makes a nation change – because a nation is simply a large group of individuals.
Marianne Williamson

When my sister was diagnosed with cancer in 1989, her doctor told her that the cancer had probably been in her system for 10 years. By the time cancer’s diagnosed, it’s usually been around for quite a while.

Marianne Williamson

In most of our situations in life, if we take a good honest look at our lives, we are holding to small, limiting thoughts, cynical thoughts.
Marianne Williamson

Certainly there is such a thing as chemical depression, and for that, obviously, there are issues that psychotherapists are much more expert at speaking to, but I think there is a low-grade depression that actually prevails in our society. And most of us feel it.
Marianne Williamson

There is nothing that a military machine can do to work a miracle.
Marianne Williamson

People are starting to wake up to the fact that a media/political party-complex basically decide our candidate, then create the illusion for the rest of us that in fact we’re the ones who did the deciding.
Marianne Williamson

I’ve known Dennis Kucinich for a long time, and I don’t think I have illusions about him. Sometimes I find him pompous, male chauvinistic, intellectually unbending. But he is a good man, and a serious one.
Marianne Williamson

In 2004, Kucinich was the only presidential candidate who warned that a war in Iraq would be completely disastrous. I remember how mocked he was when he predicted hand-to-hand combat in Baghdad. I remember Candy Crowley, and other reporters as well, treating his views on the impending war as ridiculous, out there, almost insane.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson God Quotes
You get enough people agreeing in consciousness that Mexico is a dangerous place, and that dangerous thought will make it so.
Marianne Williamson

Prayer is the medium of miracles; in whatever way works for you, pray right now.
Marianne Williamson

Sometimes a miracle is a change in material conditions, such as physical healing. At other times, it is a psychological or emotional change.
Marianne Williamson

Old Newtonian physics claimed that things have an objective reality separate from our perception of them. Quantum physics, and particularly Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, reveal that, as our perception of an object changes, the object itself literally changes.
Marianne Williamson

As all of us are only too aware, the loud and frantic voices of the outer world easily drown out the small, still loving voice within.
Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of constant juxtaposition between joy that’s possible and pain that’s all too common. We hope for love and success and abundance, but we never quite forget that there is always lurking the possibility of disaster.
Marianne Williamson

Whatever it is that leads human beings to hate, to destroy, and to kill has taken on a collective force like never before, as technology and globalization now give it the capacity to not just strike, but to strike us all, together, as one.
Marianne Williamson

There’s a certain je ne sais quoi that Americans have in spades – a we-can-do-anything spirit that makes so many things possible for all of us. We’re rugged individualists, aspirational in nature, and we like to think for ourselves.
Marianne Williamson

When it comes to politics today, the devils’ not in the details; the devil’s in the big picture, more often than not just hiding in plain sight.
Marianne Williamson

A threat to our freedom is a threat to our freedom, whether from a terrorist or from a trade deal.
Marianne Williamson

The Founders didn’t mention political parties when they wrote the Constitution, and George Washington in essence warned us against them in his Farewell Address.
Marianne Williamson

Major political parties have a role, but they are incapable of initiating fundamental change because they are fundamentally tied to the status quo. They are the status quo.
Marianne Williamson

Many times in life, we say we want change but are then terrified when the opportunity for it arrives.
Marianne Williamson

People don’t live in Los Angeles because we are tied to the same old, same old. We live in Los Angeles because of the intoxicating energy of new beginnings that permeate our city.
Marianne Williamson

I know politics is emotionally brutal; I’ve already had experience with the reality of smear campaigns, so I understand there will not be a path of roses laid before me.
Marianne Williamson

If I just want to ‘start a conversation,’ I don’t need to run for office. As a matter of fact, it could be argued that many people are more open to hearing you if you’re not running for office.
Marianne Williamson

Presidential campaigns are exhausting. Once they’re over, we all heave a sigh of relief that we have our lives back, the constant emails and news reports no longer harangue us, and the topic even turns at times to something else entirely.
Marianne Williamson

Americans are good people, and at times we can be wise. But we’re often under-informed by media, misinformed by our government and ill-served by both.
Marianne Williamson

The primary social contract between the people of the United States and their government – quaint though it might seem to even mention it at this point – is that ours is to be a government ‘of the people, by the people, for the people.’
Marianne Williamson

We incarcerate more African-American men today than were slaves in 1850.
Marianne Williamson

The holidays are only holy if we make them so.
Marianne Williamson

The mortal mind alone cannot devise an answer to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, because the true answer lies on a level of consciousness that’s beyond our mortal thinking. Quite simply, when it comes to Israel and the Palestinians, we need a miracle.
Marianne Williamson

Viewing Israelis and Palestinians from a psychological perspective, they would both be seen as victims of abuse; that is how they both understandably feel, and it’s how they both understandably behave. The Jewish psyche is in victimized reaction to the Holocaust, and the Palestinian psyche is in victimized reaction to the Israelis.
Marianne Williamson

Allopathic doctors used to laugh condescendingly at those who posited that psychological, emotional and spiritual factors were important contributors to the sickness as well as healing of the body.
Marianne Williamson

I believe the Israelis have been wronged, but they also have a lot to apologize for. And I believe the Palestinians have been wronged, but they have a lot to apologize for, as well.
Marianne Williamson

Over the years, many people on a spiritual journey have asked me why I keep going on about politics, and many people involved in politics have asked me why I keep going on about spirituality.
Marianne Williamson

People on a spiritual path – personal growth, spiritual practice, recovery, yoga and so forth – are the last people who should be sitting out the social and political issues of our day.
Marianne Williamson

Everyone archetypally is a parent to future generations.
Marianne Williamson

Whether the Sikhs want to worship in Wisconsin or the Christians want to worship in Texas or the Jews want to worship in New York, we’re living under the magnificent umbrella of a Constitution that says we can.
Marianne Williamson

When I went to college in the 1970s, the Women’s Liberation movement was all the buzz.
Marianne Williamson

While women were powerfully liberated both externally as well as internally by the feminism of the 1970s, we made some serious mistakes as well.
Marianne Williamson

In the name of feminism, we denied some essential aspects of our authentic selves. While feminism should have been nothing if not a celebration of our own unique characteristics, we insisted that we had no unique characteristics… that gender differences were hogwash, and a feminine woman was nothing more than a plaything for men.
Marianne Williamson

I now see that is a woman’s God-given role to tend to the home and take care of the children: it’s just that the entire planet is our home, and every child on it is one of our children.
Marianne Williamson

Tragedy takes us to the very state of consciousness which, were we to hold to it, would go far toward preventing further tragedies.
Marianne Williamson

Human civilization as we know it is like the Titanic headed for the iceberg, whether the iceberg be nuclear, environmental or terrorism-related.
Marianne Williamson

In every advanced mammalian species that survives and thrives, a common anthropological characteristic is the fierce behavior of the adult female of the species when she senses a threat to her cubs. The lioness, the tigress and the mama bear are all examples.
Marianne Williamson

An educated child earns more later in life, knows how to keep their own children from dying, produces more food, is less likely to get AIDS, and in the case of boys, is less likely to engage in armed civil conflict.
Marianne Williamson

In my lifetime, we have lost a President, a Civil Rights leader and a Presidential candidate – all to gun violence.
Marianne Williamson

The whole Obama phenomenon brings up memories from my distant past: the good-looking guy who talks real good, whose line you don’t buy immediately but whose charm is so dazzling that he gradually convinces you that this time it will be different.
Marianne Williamson

In ‘Healing the Soul of America,’ I wrote about Gandhi’s notion of soul force in politics and why it matters to stand on your truth.

If someone thinks homosexuality is immoral, they have a right to believe that.
Marianne Williamson

For many, many people, getting married is one of the most important things they will ever do in the pursuit of happiness.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson Politics Quotes
God is limitless in His love, and asks that we at least make the effort to be limitless in ours.
Marianne Williamson

I can’t say that there are ‘things’ that make me come alive. There are thoughts that make me come alive.
Marianne Williamson

Some pain is simply the normal grief of human existence. That is pain that I try to make room for. I honor my grief.
Marianne Williamson

The Law of Divine Compensation posits that this is a self-organizing and self-correcting universe: the embryo becomes a baby, the bud becomes a blossom, the acorn becomes an oak tree. Clearly, there is some invisible force that is moving every aspect of reality to its next best expression.
Marianne Williamson

The entire political system is contrary to everything a feminine heart stands for. It lacks inclusion. It lacks tenderness toward children. It lacks honor for relationships. It lacks reverence for the earth. It lacks love. And without those things, the feminine psyche disconnects.
Marianne Williamson

Politics in America is like stale bread. It’s so yada yada that the best among us can hardly stand it.
Marianne Williamson

Nature is infinitely creative. It is always producing the possibility of new beginnings.
Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson

It’s very scary having something wrong with your head.

We live in a world of easy friendships – people here for you when it’s easy, ‘so-sorry-but-I-have-an-errand-to-do-now’ when it’s not.
Marianne Williamson

I’m proud to say I was part of a movement in which we sang ‘All You Need Is Love’ at political rallies.
Marianne Williamson

Jesus was a human being who, while on Earth, completely self-actualized and fulfilled in all ways the potential glory that lies within us all.
Marianne Williamson

Jesus is a personal symbol of the Holy Spirit. Having been totally healed by the Holy Spirit, Jesus became one with him. Every thought, action, and deed of Jesus was guided by the Holy Spirit instead of ego.
Marianne Williamson

The point of Jesus’ existence wasn’t to lessen or diminish our appreciation of each other, but to expand our appreciation of each other by reminding us what lies within all of us, because Jesus was an example of the pinnacle of human evolution.
Marianne Williamson

Judaism is interesting in that there is something there that I think you just can’t understand if you’re not a Jew – it moves into a realm of true mystery.
Marianne Williamson

The universe is conspiring in every moment to bring me happiness and peace.
Marianne Williamson

God goes with me everywhere, because God is in my mind.
Marianne Williamson

Divine organization is inherent in all things.
Marianne Williamson

As a cell contains a natural intelligence by which it fosters the healthy functioning of the body, I, too, have natural intelligence that fosters the perfect unfolding of my life.
Marianne Williamson

Become more accepting. With every interaction, surrender any tendency to judge another person. Pray for a more accepting heart.
Marianne Williamson

Try to see the good in others. When you’re tempted to judge someone, make an effort to see their goodness. Your willingness to look for the best in people will subconsciously bring it forth.
Marianne Williamson

Take stock of your thoughts and behavior. Each night ask yourself, when were you negative when you could have been positive? When did you withhold love when you might have given it? When did you play a neurotic game instead of behaving in a powerful way? Use this process to self-correct.
Marianne Williamson

Use each interaction to be the best, most powerful version of yourself.
Marianne Williamson

Governments move armies, but only individuals can move hearts.
Marianne Williamson

Our task, in the aftermath of September 11, was and continues to be the transformation of the effects of evil into something beautiful and good.
Marianne Williamson

I think the heartbreak of September 11 – America’s grief not only over the loss of life but also the loss of our own innocence – has expanded us as people because it has tenderized our hearts. On a psychological level, the American people have matured as a result of that awful day.
Marianne Williamson

Americans are good with to-do lists; just tell us what to do, and we’ll do it. Throughout our history, we have proven that. Colonize. Check. Win our independence. Check. Form a union. Check. Expand to the Pacific. Check. Settle the West. Check. Keep the Union together. Check. Industrialize. Check. Fight the Nazis. Check.
Marianne Williamson

I read an article somewhere that stated 1 in 4 American women will be considered clinically depressed in their lifetime. This should be more than a gold mine for pharmaceutical companies – it should be a wake-up call.
Marianne Williamson

One of the shocks of a 50th birthday is realizing the fundamental fact that your youth is irrevocably over.
Marianne Williamson

In our society, as people pass out of young adulthood, they tend to relate to themselves more in terms of what they are no longer than what they are now, and that’s psychologically low-grade devastating.
Marianne Williamson

I remember I was walking through a store, and I saw clothes a 25-year-old would wear. And the conversation in my head was, ‘I’m not young and fabulous anymore.’ But, immediately, there was a voice that said, ‘No, you can be older and fabulous.’ In other words, still just as fabulous, but in a different way.
Marianne Williamson

The new midlife is where you realize that even your failures make you more beautiful and are turned spiritually into success if you became a better person because of them. You became a more humble person. You became a more merciful and compassionate person.
Marianne Williamson

Marriage can be a magnificent lesson in becoming our best selves; that is true.
Marianne Williamson

Family relationships trigger childhood wounds, and those wounds often trump our rational thinking. We can’t ‘rationally’ transcend the kind of primal pain that such relationships can arouse.
Marianne Williamson

Life is not a piece of tragic fiction in which, at the end of the reading, we all get up and go out for drinks.
Marianne Williamson

Spiritual principles do not change, but we do.
Marianne Williamson

As we mature through the years, we access more deeply information we had only abstractly understood before.

Marianne Williamson Time Quotes
The speed of change today is faster than the human psyche seems able to handle, and it’s increasingly difficult to reconcile the rhythms of our personal lives with the rapidity of a twenty-four-hour news cycle.
Marianne Williamson

I have known healthy, wealthy people who were depressed, and people with critical illnesses who could honestly attest to joy.
Marianne Williamson

While overeating would be seen by some as an indulgence of self, it is in fact a profound rejection of self. It is a moment of self-betrayal and self-punishment, and anything but a commitment to one’s own well-being.
Marianne Williamson

Your relationship to food is but a reflection of your relationship to yourself, as is everything in your life.
Marianne Williamson

There’s no reason to think that you’ll be capable of loyalty to a diet until you address your basic disloyalty toward yourself.
Marianne Williamson

All of us wish we’d had perfect childhoods, with a mother and father who modeled ideal parental attitudes and taught us to internalize the tenets of self-love. Many of us, however, did not.
Marianne Williamson

Trust is very hard if you don’t know what you’re trusting.
Marianne Williamson

Marriage, like everything else in the world, is holy or unholy depending on the purpose the mind ascribes to it.
Marianne Williamson

In the hands of the ego, marriage is a prison. It is exclusive. It is a place where people are constantly reminded of their failures and limited by the energies of another person. It is rife with judgment and blame.
Marianne Williamson

The number one root of all illness, as we know, is stress.
Marianne Williamson

The present moment, if you think about it, is the only time there is. No matter what time it is, it is always now.
Marianne Williamson

With thoughts of the past and concerns about the future, we rob ourselves of a full experience of the present.
Marianne Williamson

You can’t ‘work through worry and fear rationally,’ because fear isn’t rational!
Marianne Williamson

Ironically, it is when we identify with our spirits rather than our bodies that we are most powerful on the material plane. Our overidentification with the world does not give us power within the world so much as it diminishes our power here. It makes us frightened and nervous and full of anxiety.
Marianne Williamson

We are material beings for but a moment in time, but we are spiritual beings forever.
Marianne Williamson

Sometimes it’s easier to love people when there is a healthy distance between us.
Marianne Williamson

Spiritual ‘exercise’ keeps your mind in shape the way physical exercise keeps your body in shape.
Marianne Williamson

I want a woman president – really, I do.
Marianne Williamson

It’s tempting, when confronted by political malfeasance, to become so absorbed with its symptom that we give too little attention to treating its cause.
Marianne Williamson

Political propaganda seeks to affect the way people perceive the world in order to affect the way they behave.
Marianne Williamson

Successful businesses create jobs; that is true. But the notion that if we cut taxes enough for the very rich and for already hugely profitable businesses, then all that money will trickle down to everyone else in the form of job creation is simply false.
Marianne Williamson

Tax breaks and other financial breaks that favor the wealthiest among us do not create greater prosperity for all; they simply siphon off more and more money to those who already have it, and more and more money away from those who do not.
Marianne Williamson

Spiritually, I understand that Trump is an innocent child of God. And before he was a Presidential candidate, I found him to be a kind of entertaining American character. But he is not entertaining anymore; he is frightening. He has been elected to the Presidency of the United States and yet he acts like he is mocking the job.
Marianne Williamson

I place my life in the hands of God each day. And I trust that He knows what He’s doing, even when I do not.
Marianne Williamson

We are graced with a greater capacity for direct contact with our own higher power than most of us are in the habit of using.
Marianne Williamson

I trust life not because I trust the world, but because I trust the God who lives in my heart.
Marianne Williamson

I try to remind myself not to go anywhere or do anything without asking for spiritual direction through prayer and meditation.
Marianne Williamson

Donald Trump is an innocent child of God, and the democratically chosen president-elect of the United States. We must deeply bow before the first and deeply respect the second.
Marianne Williamson

Pray for Trump’s sanity and clarity, because his power to cause real damage to our country is enormous.
Marianne Williamson

I have no doubt that the lies Trump told on the campaign trail will come crashing back at him in karmic retribution.
Marianne Williamson

Anyone who isn’t confused or conflicted on the topic of Israel probably isn’t looking into it too deeply.
Marianne Williamson

There are two distinctly, almost surreally different narratives in Israel and Palestine… and to a great extent, both are right and both are wrong. Both peoples have suffered greatly and both have legitimate grievances against the other.
Marianne Williamson

Anyone seeking a real solution in Israel and Palestine rejects the us-versus-them mentality entirely.
Marianne Williamson

The struggle between Israelis and Palestinians is a perfect reflection of the struggle between fear and forgiveness that rages within us all.
Marianne Williamson

Corporate totalitarianism means total control by corporate interests. If they want a war, they get a war. If they want GMOs, they get GMOs. If they want fracking, they get fracking. If they want big banks to control our monetary policy, big banks control our monetary policy.
Marianne Williamson

Revolutions are not easy.
Marianne Williamson

Old systems do not fold willingly, particularly when they control gargantuan amounts of wealth and power. But like empires of old – from the Romans to the Hapsburgs to the colonial British – even the largest do fall.
Marianne Williamson

Empires always have the hubris to think they are indestructible, when in fact they are always unsustainable.
Marianne Williamson

Abolition didn’t just happen – people made it happen. Women’s suffrage didn’t just happen – people made it happen. Civil Rights legislation didn’t just happen – people made it happen. And marriage equality didn’t just happen, either – people made it happen.
Marianne Williamson

It’s a beautiful thing when democracy prevails.
Marianne Williamson

Corporate America is not dumb; it’s worked hard to sew up both political parties in its nefarious schemes to place their short-term economic interests before the health and well-being of the average American.
Marianne Williamson

The Republican corporatists are worse than the Democratic corporatists, but only to a degree. And Republican corporatists are at least true to their principles, however abhorrent those principles might be to some of us.
