And if we're gonna talk about courage and such, it doesn't talk balls to stand up and say "I'm against Iraq" these days. Might as well go to an NEA meeting and profess your adoration for public education, or go to a college campus and say conservatism sucks.
"Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the line -- and that's the very cause of our woes. If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?"
