"Liberals are like that really bad, unfair teacher we had at one point in our lives; the teacher who would come down hard on the best, nicest kids in the class while being more lenient and understanding of the more unruly kids. It's not that the teacher hates the good kids, but that they expect so much more of them that they confront them for every little step out of line. They have low expectations of the worst kids in the class and so they look past their infractions. They are also motivated by cowardice. Many avoid confrontation with outspoken personalities. Usually these teachers have little control over their class and earn the resentment of the best behaved and most eager students."
- political writer, economist and conservative Thomas Sowell
