David F. Nolan

American political scientist, columnist, one of the founders of the U.S. Libertarian Party, creator of the World's Smallest Political Quiz which identifies many people as libertarians

Unfortunately [the 'Republican Revolution'] is a sham. Despite all the hoopla and bluster, Newt [Gingrich] and Co. have wrought no great changes. No cabinet post has been eliminated. Term limits, the balanced budget amendment, and other limits on the power of the political class have been shelved. Government at all levels continues to grow, as the Demos [Democrats] and Repos [Republicans] fall over one another to pass the anti-terrorism bill, implement the V-chip, and float trial balloons about curfews and school uniforms.

Jul. 1996 - from "A critique of impure Reason", published in the Libertarian Party News
