Politics & Policy

Slogan Mania

We asked and you delivered.

We recently asked readers to suggest a motto for National Review Online. The motto will appear on stationery, coffee cups, etc. It will also be tattooed to the foreheads of all future — and past — interns. Our working version is a play on the original slogan of National Review, which appeared in the original 1955 mission statement, about the duty of conservatives to stand athwart history yelling, “Stop.” Our modified version is “NRO: Standing Athwart History, 24 Hours a Day or Seven Days a Week.” Many people suggested we shorten that to “NRO: Standing Athwart History 24/7.” We had already thought of that and we’re glad so many of you did too. What follows are some other suggested mottoes or slogans. We are still taking suggestions (including a thumbs up on one of the entries below). Send them to VoteGfile@Aol.com. And thanks for the enthusiasm.

We hate liberals — 24/7

“National Review Online — The Right Position”, to be asterisked and followed by the words below:

“Right” — According to the Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus, definitions and synonyms of “Right” include “just, morally or socially correct, true; not mistaken, having sound views or principles, suitable, preferable, correct, straight, good, proper, lawful, ethical, fair, sane, rational, reason, truth, goodness [and finally] conservative political group.”
