“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” – Winston Churchill
This famous quote just about sums up the total of the current atmosphere surrounding America. Whether it’s regarding domestic or foreign affairs, there comes a time to fight. The best time is when the losses would be few and the cost of lives avoided. This is the point Mr. Churchill references when the victory would be a sure thing. If the choice to fight is continually delayed, the cost of that fight becomes more enormous, even to the point of losing the entire war while dying in the process.
Surely, it is a good thing to pick and choose ones battles. However, how many battles have Americans chosen to consider minor to avoid fighting only to discover those minor battles were part of a larger offensive?
Yes, this quote from Winston Churchill more than likely referenced military battles; but, a fight is not always one involving force. Americans failed to fight against the advance of communist, socialist, Marxist ideology and progressive/ liberal agendas. The result is substandard education resembling indoctrination to ideologies than teaching individuals to independently think or function as productive members of society; it is the ever rapidly expanding welfare, police and slave state – a country being stripped of freedom. Sen. Joseph McCarthy was berated in his endeavor to search out communism in America and eradicate it. Wonder what the outcome would have been if more Americans had fought alongside McCarthy?
