AOSHQ collected a few quotes which ought to be pasted on the desks of certain Republicans.
There’s no better place to start than the words of one Winston Churchill:
Never give in. Never, never, never, never! Never yield in any way, great or small...Never yield to force and the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
Do you have the slightest doubt about Churchill’s intent? It is a forceful statement of resolve, almost to the point of being reckless. In response to that possibility, consider the included quote of Eric Hoffer, America’s longshoreman-philosopher:
The sickness of the late 20th Century is cowardice. Anger is the only cure for cowardice—anger strong enough to overcome fear.
For those who fully contemplate violent actions to achieve these goals, they would be well advised to consider a quote from Theodore Roosevelt:
Only those are fit to live who do not fear to die, and none are fit to die who have shrunk from the joy of life. Both life and death are part of the same Great Adventure....
Some wars are metaphors; they don't require bullets and bombs, and the sacrifices made by patriots may include being 'cancelled.' So what?
There are plenty of things worth fighting for, but GOPe 'statesmen' have managed to find even more reasons not to fight at all.
This is what got them Trump, and why Trumpism ain't going away.
