The Weekly Winston, Obama Campaign Edition

Oh what the heck.  I see Scott beat me to it this week.  But really–can you ever have too much Winston?  No, of course not.  Especially during campaign season.  From a 1950 WSC speech:

I am sure that class hatred and class warfare, like national revenge, are the most costly luxuries in which anyone can indulge.

And from a 1903 speech:

You may, by the arbitrary and sterile act of Government—for remember, Governments create nothing and have nothing to give but what they have first taken away—you may put money in the pocket of on set of Englishmen, but it will be money taken from the pockets of another set of Englishmen, and the greater part wil be spilled on the way.
