A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on dream, law, and democracy

The First Amendment reads more like a dream than a law, and no other nation, so far as I know, has been crazy enough to include such a dream among its fundamental legal documents. I defend it because it has been so successful for two centuries in preserving our freedom and increasing our vitality, knowing that all arguments in support of it are certain to sound absurd.

A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on humor, politicians, and politics

"Trout couldn't tell one politician from another one.  They were all formlessly enthusiastic chimpanzees to him...Everywhere he went, bands would play 'Hail to the Chief.'  The chimpanzee loved it.  He would bounce up and down."
