“Freedom is never granted. It is earned by each generation… in the face of tyranny, cruelty, oppression, extremism, sometimes there is only one choice. When the world looks to America, America looks to you, and you never let her down.”~Hillary Clinton

To bad the same can't be said of her.

One of her speech writers gave her that quote. She doesn't have the passion, patriotism or love of country to come up with that herself.

“War is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought.” – General Jack Ripper

Sterling Hayden as psycho General Jack D. Ripper as he regales the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the Presidential War room about the obvious merits of nuking the Soviet Union into a puddle of borscht. From the 1964 movie Dr. Strangelove.

I think they should go out first in the conflict. I think General Patton said something like that at the end of WW 2. We should have listened to him.
