You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once. - Robert A. Heinlein -

Men Without Chests
With all this talk about Obama, it brought to mind a quote from C.S. Lewis, and I just spend twenty minutes trying to find it - It's from a book/speech he gave titled "The Abolition of Man". And the quote at the very end of Chapter 1 is:
"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful."
Doesn't that sum up the America who voted for Obama?
