Quote of the day


Today’s QOTD appears in an article in NRO by Mr. John Fund, on the differences between right and left in so-called polite circles.

“Conservatives think liberals have bad ideas and liberals think conservatives are bad people.”

There’s a lot of truth in that statement.  But it makes you wonder why so many of we conservatives continue to tolerate intolerable behavior from the left.

Although I don’t spend a lot of time in those particular polite circles, for me it’s fairly simple.  I neither want nor require their approval.  Nor do I give their policy ideas much value, other than the broad nature of political thought on representative democratic governance to which we, as citizens surely subscribe:

  1. The rule of law
  2. The peaceful transfer of power through elections
  3. Judeo-Christian ethics and morals
  4. Personal liberty, and personal responsibility.

When behavior falls outside of these commonly accepted parameters, our options can be described as falling within one of three boxes four boxes:  the soap box; the ballot box; the jury box; and the cartridge box.

And, that’s a fact.
