Quote of the Day.

As for the United States being Imperialist, to quote the immortal, you keep using that word but I don’t think it means what you think it means. I don’t think the Roman, Chinese, British, etc. Empires would have ever reached the size they did if they poured money INTO the conquered provinces.

If we’re Imperialist, well, rejoice, we suck at it on a scale never seen before in history.

From a comment by “Treefrog” to a truly excellent post by Mark Danziger, “Armed Liberal,” at WindsofChange.net: Patriotism Rears its Head Again. Highly recommended; both it and the comment thread.
