    I see this thread has been moved to the forum I first considered using for its opening post. Thanks for the confirmation that my first inclination was correct.

    Nonetheless, here is a fact about quotes:

    Someone being quoted as having said something in particular does not mean that person was the first or only one to have said it. I have been quoted as having said, "Liberalism is a mental disorder."

    Thousands, if not millions of people have been quoted using those identical words.

    Famous quotes don't count if they can not be attributed and documented. When and where did Churchill make this quote?

    Apparently, his stint as a liberal lasted only 20 years...and he never accepted the tenets of socialism, as our liberal idiots do today. He switched back to conservatism for the rest of his life.

    The ages at which he changed from one to the other has nothing to do with he belief in the truthfulness of the quote. He was being quite honest in admitting he had once lived in a prolonged period of adopted stupidity.

    I suggest you contact AZ QUOTES and ask them for verification.

    Maybe it’s like Yogi Berra who said “I’ve never said most to the things I said”.

    He definitely had some great 'Yogiisms'.
