Wisdom from the past . . .

  • “No greater wrong can ever be done than to put a good man at the mercy of a bad, while telling him not to defend himself or his fellows; in no way can the success of evil be made surer or quicker.” ~President Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)
  • “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.” ~strong>British publisher and writer Ernest Benn (1875-1954)
  • “The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office.” ~American journalist H. L. Mencken (1880-1856)
