I’ve been fairly consistent over the years in my criticism of all politicians and liberals even more so.  It’s my opinion that all politicians usually do more harm than good once they start passing inane laws  and even more so with liberals.

For a long time I felt I was alone in my opinions until I started doing what I tell everyone else to do, “Know Your Past”.  I’ve always loved history and read as much of it as I can. The following quotes are from a variety of sources over a span of almost a hundred years and I found them more than a little interesting.  I hope you do as well.

 “A liberal is a man who leaves the room when the fight starts”  – Heywood Broun (1888-1939)

“Limousine Liberal: one who takes up hunger as a cause but has never felt a pang; who will talk at length about the public school system but sends his children to private schools.” – William Safire (1929-2009)

“A liberal will hang you from a lower branch.” – Adlai E. Stevenson (1900-1965)

“The modern, liberal-scientific ethic: if it’s bad for you, it should be prohibited; if it’s good for you, it should be required.” – Thomas S. Szasz  (1920-2012)

“Liberal: Someone who believes crime is the fault of society until he’s robbed.” – Jerry Tucker (1941- )

“In a pinch the liberals can always be counted on to back up the principles of the established order.” – Scott Nearing (1883-1983) Jul 1950

I won’t be slamming our liberal friends today but I will let the quotes do it for me.  It’s nice to know that my opinion of liberals and other politicians was held by many and varied people of note for decades.
