Senator Jesse Helms: October 18, 1921 - July 4, 2008

"Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the line — and that's the very cause of our woes. 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?"

— Helms writing in 1959 on compromise in politics.
