One of my favorite Founding Father quotes is from Samuel Adams:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”
My good friend Lance Fairchok has written on American Thinker a scathing article of the same title as this post. Lance takes to task the conservative elitism of Washington D.C.
This is the type of plain-spokenness we need more from the conservative movement.
