RIP Jesse Helms

Former US Senator Jesse Helms died today on the Fourth of July. I will dedicate the quote of the day to him. It's very appropriate given the day today.
Compromise, hell! ... If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?"
Yes I understand this man was not perfect. I believe his racism against black people will forever taint his record.
