"The Last Conservative Democrat?" Not Quite

Common Sense Commentary: Zell Miller, a former Marine, served as Governor of Georgia and then in the U.S. Senate until his retirement in 2005. He is said to be the last Conservative in the Democrat Party, but I would have to "moderate" that claim. He was more accurately a "Moderate Conservative." There have been no Senate Conservatives in the Democrat Party since Senator Sam Nunn who was almost a true Conservative until his retirement 20 years ago. Even "Moderate" is a misnomer when applied to the Democrat Party. In truth and in fact, it is The Liberal Socialist Party. One more half-step to the left and it will be the Communist Party. RB

Quotes from Senator Zell Miller 

One of these days, someone smarter and younger and more articulate than I is going to get through to the American people just how really messed up the federal government has become. And when that happens, the American people are going to rise up like that football crowd in Cleveland and run both teams off the field.  Zell Miller (That wasn't prophetic, it was plain old Common Sense observation, RB)

Why is it that there's more indignation over a photo of a prisoner with underwear on his head than over the video of a young American with no head at all?  Zell Miller (Entirely too rational for a true Democrat. RB)

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag. Zell Miller (A rare Democrat Patriot. RB)

Where I come from, deeds mean a lot more than words. Zell Miller

A Marine knows that pride is the bedrock upon which he will lay the foundation of his life, and on that foundation he will build the structure by which the worth of his existence and the measure of his accomplishments will be judged. Zell Miller

I wish we lived in the day where you could challenge a person to a duel. Zell Miller

I have knocked on the door of this man's soul and found someone home. Zell Miller 

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. Zell Miller 

 Tax cuts are not just something that all taxpayers deserve, but also the best way to curb government spending. It is the best kind of tax reform. If the money never reaches the table, Congress can't gobble it up. Zell Miller 

My family is more important than my party. Zell Miller 

Will someone please explain to me the logic that says we can trust someone with a Boeing 747 in bad weather but not with a Glock 9 millimeter? Zell Miller 

For more than 20 years, on every one of the great issues of freedom and security, John Kerry has been more wrong, more weak and more wobbly than any other national figure. Zell Miller 

Twenty years of votes can tell you much more about a man than twenty weeks of campaign rhetoric. Campaign talk tells people who you want them to think you are. How you vote tells people who you really are deep inside. Zell Miller 

Motivated more by partisan politics than by national security, today's Democratic leaders see America as an occupier, not a liberator. And nothing makes this Marine madder than someone calling American troops occupiers rather than liberators. Zell Miller 

I truly believe that at times like this, silence is not golden. It is yellow. Zell Miller 

When they make it harder for us to pray, we just pray harder. Zell Miller 

You won't find average Americans on the left or on the right. You'll find them at Kmart. Zell Miller 

Howard Dean knows about as much about the South as a hog knows about Sunday. Zell Miller 

When a child has no hope, a nation has no future. Zell Miller 

I can remember when Democrats believed that it was the duty of America to fight for freedom over tyranny. Zell Miller
