Smile Political Satire

1) The only thing congress can agree on is a salary increase.- Unknown

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

5) Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
- Douglas Casey, Classmate of Bill Clinton at Georgetown
University

6) Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to boys.
- P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

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

8) 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)

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

blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery.

17) A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.

Default Re: Political Satire

Perry,

Those are great!

I see a couple are by P.J. O'Rourke. I've enjoyed some of his books and articles. Early in his career he wrote for Rolling Stone and described himself as the "Token Republican" and the only one on staff.
