“A conservative is someone who stands athwart history yelling Stop
at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience
with those who so urge it.”

“I will not cede more power to the state, not to General Motors,’not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser,
resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then
use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man
but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors;
never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday
at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not?
It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy,
and liberals at bay, and the nation free.”
