BETTER DEAD THAN RED!
COMMUNISM IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF FAILURE!
— Liberty Prime, Fallout 3
The real issues are whether the power of Western Civilization, as God has permitted it to flower in our own beloved lands, shall defy and defeat Communism; whether the rule of men who shoot their prisoners, enslave their citizens, and deride the dignity of man, shall displace the rule of those to whom the individual and his individual rights are sacred; whether we are to survive with God's hand to guide and lead us, or to perish in the dead existence of a Godless world.
— General Matthew Ridgway, Korea, 1951

"We hear about constitutional rights, free speech and the free press. Every time I hear those words I say to myself, 'That man is a Red, that man is a Communist.' You never heard a real American talk in that manner."
—Frank Hague, mayor of Jersey City, 1938
"If you haven't found any communists in your backyard, you aren't looking hard enough!"
