Political Language

Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give appearance of solidity to pure wind. — George Orwell (1903-1950)

Political Parties

Nothing could be more ill-judged than that intolerant spirit which has, at all times, characterized political parties. — Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804)

Stupidity

In politics, stupidity is not a handicap. — Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)

The Common Man

When we are sick, we want an uncommon doctor; when we have a construction job to do, we want an uncommon engineer, and when we are at war, we want an uncommon general. It is only when we get into politics that we are satisfied with the common man. — Herbert Hoover (1874-1964)
