Iain Duncan Smith
Criminality is always the result of poverty. Countries that experience such a fundamental change as we have - we had the apartheid regime and must now develop a multicultural democracy - must necessarily pass through a phase of high crime rates.
Recently, lobbyists for the pharmaceutical industry wrote a prescription drug bill that increased their profits and did nothing to help seniors. The result: seniors are stuck with a confusing prescription drug plan that does little to help them with their costs.
There are various eyes. Even the Sphinx has eyes: and as a result there are various truths, and as a result there is no truth.
Some of us will do our jobs well and some will not, but we will be judged by only one thing-the result.

One of the greatest features of science is that it doesn't matter where you were born, and it doesn't matter what the belief systems of your parents might have been: If you perform the same experiment that someone else did, at a different time and place, you'll get the same result.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
When I was president, I announced and I still maintain that I can live with Roe v. Wade.

In my home state of Delaware, we've done our homework and worked hard and, as a result, we've made great strides in cleaning up our own air pollution.
