"McCarthy generally, as an individual, was a liberal. He was, in economic philosophy and a lot of other things, extremeyl liberal." - Roy Cohn (McCarthy's cheif counsel)

"This war in which we are now engaged is not--cannot--be a war between America's two great political parties. As I have often said in the past, certainly the millions of loyal Americans who have long voted the Democrat ticket love America just as much and hate Communism just as much as the average Republican." - McCarthy speech to the Irish Fellowship Club, 1954

"As long as the jobs are available there will be Communists, either by infiltration or by incubation the emoluments and pomp which go with the political job will convert the meekest bureaucrat to the religion of Power. Hence, if Congres would destroy this creed, it must undo all the "social gains" which have been imposed on us in the past fifteen years. It must abolish the bureaus. If that were done, the devotees of Power would be reduced to soapbox oratory." -Frank Chodorov

"States' rights is your best defense against Communism!"-Dean Clarence Manion
