Political Quote of the Day

I sure hope the good folks at The Absurd Report don’t mind me using their material!

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” —C.S. Lewis

Since it’s so obvious which political party this refers to I’ll pass on saying it.

Edit: Added bold type since it wasn’t exactly clear what I was referring to. Namely, the worse of the two choices.

    Omnipotent moral busybodies? It’s the religious right! Great post, Frznagn!

    Exactly!

    ‘but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end,’

    And this would be the ‘take money from the rich so the poor can have everything without doing anything’ left.

    Probably could’ve worded it better but I’m tired.

    Nah, I still say it’s the religious right. ..

    See my edit on the main post. It’s the left that keeps doing things in our ‘best interests’.
