Politics in a Nutshell
A summation of POLITICS in the world today, and sadly, pretty far back into the past too. I honestly believe that the Founding Fathers would be in shock if they could see us today. The pundits cover politics much better than the Mainstream Media ever dreamed of doing.
If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.
The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
~Henry Cate, VII~
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office
If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn’t be any inducement to go to heaven.
Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it.
Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.
Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.
~Adlai Stevenson, 1952~
A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
~ Tex Guinan~
I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.
~Charles de Gaulle~
Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
There ought to be one day — just one — when there is open season on Congressmen.
We’d all like to vote for the best man, but he’s never a candidate.
And every election cycle BOTH Parties offer up who and what they want, until this year when Donald J. Trump became the choice of *The People*, and now BOTH Parties are losing their minds in fear that Trump may actually DO what he says he’ll do.
I hope he starts with hanging Hillary Clinton and her cohorts for treason and other High Crimes against this nation.
