"There are men, in all ages, who mean to exercise power usefully; but who mean to exercise it. They mean to govern well; but they mean to govern. They promise to be kind masters; but they mean to be masters." Daniel Webster

George Will: Time to Get Out of Afghanistan
Will is probably the only conservative pundit I can think of who has gotten more libertarian and more radical as he got older.
