Quote of the day - Joe Sobran

Ordinary conservatives will stick with Bush, of course.
Their battle cry is, as ever, "Let's support the lesser evil!
We're realists! We've got nowhere else to go!" And they will
wind up, as ever, gaining nothing. Backing the "lesser evil"
means only delaying defeat. It never means victory. A string
of "lesser evils" going back to Richard Nixon has only
resulted in entrenched tyranny. Liberals haven't had to settle
for lesser evils, so they've gotten what they want from the
Democrats. Where is it written that a surrendering
conservative is better than a conquering liberal?

Joe Sobran - April 2000
