“When a man gives up drugs he wants big fires in his life - all night long, every night, huge fires in the fireplace and the volume turned all the way up.” Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing On the Campaign Trail ‘72 (via flower-cum)

“This world is full of dangerous beasts—but none quite as ugly and uncontrollable as a layer who has finally flipped off the tracks of Reason. He will run completely amok—like a Priest into sex, or a narc-cop who suddenly decides to start sampling his contraband.” Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72 (via missrunaness)

“Not entirely, but I feel The Fear coming on, and the only cure for that is to chew up a fat black wad of blood-opium about the size of a young meatball and then call a cab for a fast run down to that strip of X-film houses on 14th Street … peel back the brain, let the opium take hold, and get locked into serious pornography.” Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72 (via missrunaness)

“The whole framework of the presidency is getting out of hand. It’s come to the point where you almost can’t run unless you can cause people to salivate and whip on each other with big sticks. You almost have to be a rock star to get the kind of fever you need to survive in American politics.” Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72 (via el-uuno)

The ’72 presidential campaign is looking more & more like a backroom squabble between Bankers, Generals, and Labor Bosses. There is no indication, at this time, that the outcome will make much difference to anyone else. If the Republicans win, we will immediately declare Limited Nuclear War on all of Indochina and the IRS will start collecting a 20 percent national sales tax on every dollar spent by anybody—for the National Defense Emergency.

But if the Democrats win, Congress will begin a fourteen-year debate on whether or not to declare Massive Conventional War on all of Indochina, and the IRS will begin collecting a 20 percent National Losers’ Tax on all incomes under $25,000 per annum—for the National Defense Emergency.

““It is enough to say that we finally comprimised. If I refused to leave without violence, then I was damn well going to have to carry a sign in a the spontaneous demonstration - and also wear a plastic red, white, and blue Nixon hat. They never came right out and said it, but I could see they were uncomfortable at the prospect of all three network TV cameras looking down on their spontaneous Nixon Youth demonstration and zeroing in - for their own perverse reasons - on a weird-looking, thirty-five-year-old speed freak with half his hair burned off from overindulgence, wearing a big blue McGovern button on his chest, carrying a tall cup of “Old Milwaukee” and shaking his fist at John Chancellor up in the NBC booth - screaming: “You dirty bastard! You’ll pay for this by God! We’ll rip you goddam teeth out! KILL! KILL! Your number just came up, you communist son of a bitch!”” Hunter S.

“The implication, every time, is that the ‘youth vote’ menace is just a noisy paper tiger. Sure, some of these kids will vote, they say, but the way things look now it won’t be more than ten percent. That’s the colleges; the other ninety percent are either military types, on the dole, or working people - on salary, just married, hired into their first jobs. Man, these people are already locked down, the same as their parents.”
