Two Political Truisms

Two political truisms, in my opinion, come from two great patriots.  The first comes from the great historic patriot of Great Britain, Winston Churchill.   The second comes from a great American patriot, my younger brother Brad. :-)

Winston Churchill [although there is some dispute that it is Churchill who was the one who said this, since I heard one  of my heroes, Charles Krauthammer attribute this to him, I will go with the great Doctor Krauthammer]:  “If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”

My brother Brad [again a variation on this quote has been around, but I first heard this from a great American, my brother Brad]:  "If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove that you would vote for a black man, then you should, in 2012, vote against Obama to prove you're not an idiot."
