Joe Sobran: Who Was This Guy?

Joe Sobran.

"Freedom has ceased to be a birthright; it has come to mean whatever we are still permitted to do."

"Canada has to protect itself against such pernicious, hate-filled American notions as the Law of Moses. If Dr. Laura wants to spew the Ten Commandments, let her do it in her own country."

Ann Coulter eulogizes him, here.

Joseph Sobran is the guy who said

"Democracy has proved only that the best way to gain power over people is to assure the people that they are ruling themselves. Once they believe that, they make wonderfully submissive slaves."

It is a quote that forms the tag line of every personal email I send out.
