“I suppose it is another manifestation of my general bloodthirsty, swashbuckling frame of mind, my fondness for the big stick and violence of all kinds. I want my country to be right; I hope she always will be right; but right or wrong, whatever she gets into I am going to be with her until she gets out. Then if there is any correcting to do, I’ll try and do my share. And I am not prepared to concede the possibility of error in that doctrine by agreeing to debate it with anybody.”
