Famous People's Thoughts on Politics

Hat tip to Shelia, of Netanya, Israel 

Nikita Khrushchev - "Politicians are the same all over.  They promise to build a bridge even when there is no river."  (Think:   Bullet Train here in California.)

Will Rogers - 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."  

Clarence Darrow - "When I was a boy, I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it." 

Author Unknown - "Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you."  (And for free!)

Oscar Ameringer - "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."  

John Quinton - "Politicians are people who, when they see a light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel." 

Doug Larson - "Instead of giving the keys to the city  it might be better to change the locks."   
It's rare but it struck me that every one of these is true!  Scary, no?
