Quote of the Day (Theodore Roosevelt, on How No Man is Above or Below the Law)

“A republic such as ours can exist only by virtue of the orderly liberty which comes through the equal domination of the law over all men alike, and through its administration in such resolute and fearless fashion as shall teach all that no man is above it and no man below it.” —President Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), "A Square Deal" speech to farmers at the New York State Agricultural Association,  Syracuse, NY, September 7, 1903

A Republican President who—alas—many on the alt-right scorn as a Progressive.
