No agenda here. I just thought a lot of these were funny or just ring too true. Special thanks again to Dr. Bob Griffin


Here are some thoughts and quotes on government. Note the author and the
dates on some. Doesn't look like things have changed at all.

1) Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But
then I repeat myself ........... Mark Twain

2) I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like
a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
.......... Winston Churchill

3) A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the
support of Paul. ......... George Bernard Shaw

4) A Congressman is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which
debt he proposes to pay off with your money....G. Gordon Liddy

5) Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on
what to have for dinner. ........ James Bovard, Civil Libertarian (1994)

6) Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people in
rich countries to rich people in poor countries. .....Douglas Casey

7) Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys
to teenage boys ............ PJ. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

8) Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to
live at the expense of everybody else.......... Frederic Bastiat, French
Economist (1801-1850)

9) Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short
phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it
stops moving, subsidize it. ..... Ronald Reagan (1986)

10) I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts....
Will Rogers

11) If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it
costs when it's free. ...... P. J. O'Rourke

12) In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as
possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.
.......Voltaire (1764)

13) Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean
politics won't take an interest in you. ...... Pericles (430 B. C.)

14) No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in
session. ....... Mark Twain (1866)

15) Talk is cheap .. except when Congress does it. ........ Unknown

16) The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite
at one end and no responsibility at the other........... Ronald Reagan

17) The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings.
The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. ........
Winston Churchill

18) The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the
taxidermist leaves the skin. ....... Mark Twain

19) The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to
fill the world with fools. ...Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher
(1820-1903)

20) There is no distinctly native American criminal class... save Congress.
.......... Mark Twain

BONUS: What this country needs are more unemployed politicians. ........
Edward Langley, Artist (1928 - 1995)
