Quote of the Day

The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgement of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist.

— Winston Churchill

Who you calling Neville Chamberlain mein freund? Kind of an interesting twist on the appeasement meme: just which political factions in this country are appeasing those instigating a totalitarian drift? I think I know which side Churchill would be on.
