My Clever Wife on Conservatism

My dear wife sent me this quote from Franklin Roosevelt today –

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward.

and followed it up with this wonderful retort –

A liberal is a man with two perfectly good eyes, who, however, has never learned to stop running with a blindfold on.

  1. The liberal is still moving forward though 🙂

    • I guess it depends on what your definition of forward is. If you move forward and fall off a cliff, would you really call that progress? 🙂

  2. Nice. 🙂

    I’d read that first quote a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed it, but that second is good.
