Brown shirts and Brown University?
« on: November 04, 2013, 06:30:00 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart.  If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain. [1]

[1] Although there is no record of anyone hearing Churchill say this, this quote has been widely attributed to Winston Churchill. Source: http://www.winstonchurchill.org/learn/speeches/quotations/quotes-falsely-attributed

Just want to make sure I keep the quote police at bay.
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.
