QotD: "As a result of reading West’s book, I now look on the United States as a big dumb ox, led around by a cabal of its enemies whose intent is to take the beast out to slaughter."



"As a result of reading West’s book, I now look on the United States as a big dumb ox, led around by a cabal of its enemies whose intent is to take the beast out to slaughter. It is a very large beast and will not go quietly. But given what you will learn from this book, you will be in some despair in trying to work out what can be done. This is a very troubling book which I nevertheless encourage you to read."
~ Steven Kates, from his book review of Diana West's American Betrayal

    1. Never mind. I read a summary. The enemies are mostly the socialists since 1900. Of course. The problems never started with the founders. George Washington didn't continue enslaving anyone literally, and he didn't enact a tax on whiskey three times that of the tax on tea that he revolted over. ho hum. :P
