On This Election Day...

Information is the currency of democracy.
~Thomas Jefferson

Politics, it seems to me, for years, or all too long, has been concerned
with right or left instead of right or wrong.
~Richard Armour

George Washington is the only president who didn't blame
the previous administration for his troubles.
~Author Unknown

Mankind will never see an end of trouble until...
lovers of wisdom come to hold political power,
or the holders of power...become lovers of wisdom.
~Plato, The Republic

When one may pay out over two million dollars to
Presidential and Congressional campaigns,
the U.S. government is virtually up for sale.
~John Gardner

Politicians and diapers should be changed frequently and all for the same reason.
~José Maria de Eça de Queiroz

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.
~George Jean Nathan

There are always
too many Democratic Congressmen,
too many Republican Congressmen,
and never enough U.S. Congressmen.
~Author Unknown

People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are
made by a majority of the people.
Of course, that is not true.
Decisions are made by a majority of those who
make themselves heard and who vote
- a very different thing.
~Walter H. Judd

We are imperfect. We cannot expect perfect government.
~William Howard Taft
