Election - Words of Wisdom

On this, the day of the Ohio Primary, I thought that it would be worthwhile to share some of the wisdom recorded over the years about politics. For myself, I will say only this, "Get out and Vote!"  

"Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business... frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite."
 - Ronald Reagan  

"We in America do not have government of the majority. We have government of the majority who participate.

- Thomas Jefferson  

"Liberty without learning is always in peril; learning without liberty is always in vain."
 - John F Kennedy 

"If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?"
- Abraham Lincoln  

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." 
- H L Menken

"This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer. - Will Rogers

Tim,

Vote early and vote often.

Actually, the first Mayor Daley (Richard J.) lives on today through the his son (Richard M.). The middle initial may have changed; but the graft, corruption, and strong-armed politics remain the same.

On the other hand, at least all of the Democratic party crooks are on the same "team" in Chicago.
