Just A Couple Of Conservative Thinkers The World Misses

“Being democratic is not enough, a majority cannot turn what is wrong into right. In order to be considered truly free, countries must also have a deep love of liberty, and an abiding respect for the rule of law.” Margaret Thatcher

“Democracy can itself be as tyrannical as a dictatorship, since it is the extent, not the source, of government power that impinges on freedom.” William F Buckley

And of course:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. Ronald Reagan

Rather frightening: that generation may have already been born. I pray otherwise.
