Burton Kendall Wheeler (18821975)
What bothers me about todays liberals is this: through the ages, those called liberal fought to take the power away from the kings and the emperors and to give it to the parliaments; now it is the liberals who are anxious to give more and more power to the executive, at the expense of the legislative branch.
