As a follow up to mid-term elections on Tuesday, and while we wait for all results to be final, I thought the wit and wisdom of Will Rogers was timely! ..... All quotes below are by Will Rogers, great American humorist and showman (1879-1935):
The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best.
A fool and his money are soon elected.
Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated.
The difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the Democrat is a cannibal they have to live off each other, while the Republicans, why, they live off the Democrats.
Politics is applesauce.
Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man; we never get to vote on what he is to do.
The 1928 Republican Convention opened with a prayer. If the Lord can see His way clear to bless the Republican Party the way it's been carrying on, then the rest of us ought to get it without even asking.
On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does.
There is no more independence in politics than there is in jail.
