Might is right.
~ English Proverb, American [17775]

These words have been handed down for centuries, and uttered in many different variations. For Americans, the most famous use comes from President Abraham Lincoln:

"Lets have faith that right makes might; and in that faith let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it."
