I came across a few favorite quotes I wanted to pass on that I thought fits most politicians that we in government to a “T”.
All of these quotes pretty much fit the politicians we have in office today; not just only at the federal level of government but in all walks of government, local, statewide and federal. The vast majority of the office holders are in it for a couple of things; inside information, ego, benefits and their retirement plan.
Even in the small little burg I live in, the elected officials try to run the government like a gestapo.
With all of the rederick that has been stuffed down our throats the last 1.5 years about cutting the costs in the government, no-one has brought up the issue about the senate and the congress not having to play by the same rules as “their subjects”.
They have different healthcare plans, different retirement plans and just about everything different than “Joe Blow” citizen has. Why; because it is not good enough for them.
I always believed that if I ate steak for dinner that is what my kids ate. I guess that same doesn’t apply to our government officials.
If the government wants to cut costs they should be looking into some of the outrageous benefits these people get while in office and when they retire from office. That will absolutely never happen.
I think these quotes fit most of our representatives like a glove.
Edmund: All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.
Ronald Reagan: Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
John Adams: In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.
All of these guys with their toes facing up hit the nail right on the head.
