Churchill quotes

It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.
Bite me socialism!
Gotta love this
History is written by the victors….

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.


If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack

No crime is so great as daring to excel.

My thoughts on Islam;
One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Emphasis mine)

Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon. Capitalism rulz!

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries

Truer words!

The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.

and
There is no such thing as a good tax.

Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Hahaha!
You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.

To expand on the democracy quote
Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.
Sir Winston Churchill, Hansard, November 11, 1947

and a little tongue in cheek for me!
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.
Sir Winston Churchill, My Early Life, 1930

Last but not least.

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

    The problem is, when you try to point out how Obama is leading us pell mell into socialism, so many on the left are, “I know, isn’t it great!?!”

    How do you “warn” people that don’t see anything wrong with what’s happening?

    Steve B,

    I do the best I can…I lead them to facts. If they choose not to drink of the clear blue water? At least I tried.

    Heh. I’ve read his multi-volume history of WWII, and he very clearly wrote it with an eye to coming out of it looking good.
