A compilation of quotations on a variety of issues by national, state and regional writers, well-known personalities, just plain everyday people and from various publications collected by the editors of THE ADVANCE.

Quotes for our Times:

Mark J. Penn, chairman and CEO of Stagwell, Inc., and chairman of the Harris Poll: The inflation electorate will hold Biden and Democrats accountable at midterms.

The electoral impact of this issue is singularly powerful. We define ‘the inflation electorate' as the 25 percent of respondents in September’s Harvard-Harris Poll who say that inflation is their number one concern for the midterms and that their personal financial situation is worsening. Nearly half these voters are Democrats or Independents but the Congressional generic ballot among them favors the Republicans by a lopsided 69 percent to 31 percent. It is in my view that inflation and its impact is the key factor giving Republicans the clear edge in these midterms.

Chuck DeVore, vice president with the Texas Public Policy Foundation, was elected to the California legislature, is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, and author: Democrats soft on crime and midterms give Americans a chance to choose safety.

While only some progressive city councils and left-wing DAs are on the ballot this Nov. 8, most of their ideological allies in Congress must face voters. Polling suggests that voters place greater trust in Republicans than Democrats to improve public safety. Given Democrats’ erratic shifts on criminal justice, it’s not a surprise.

Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s flagship primetime cable news program, Tucker Carlson Tonight: It's not election denial when the Democratic Party does it.

Here's Joe Biden claiming that Democrats don't question election results.

PRESIDENT BIDEN: 'This is a nation that believes in the rule of law. We do not repudiate it. This is a nation that respects free and fair elections. We honor the will of the people. We do not deny it.'

We do not deny it. Unless, of course, two weeks out from a pivotal midterm election, we get the sense based on polling that we're about to be spanked like the bad little girls we are, at which point we start making excuses and planting the seeds for more election denial, just as we did after Donald Trump won. That's exactly what's going on now.

Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: Who are the real election tamperers?

So it's no wonder violence is now erupting. Did you see that a volunteer for Marco Rubio got beaten to a pulp canvasing for his candidate? I bet you didn't see that on the news because he's probably or allegedly the wrong victim. But he looked like he just rode New York subway. And why shouldn't he be beaten? He's a threat to democracy, just like you and me.
