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."

A Quote by Milton Friedman on change and politics

Only a crisis - actual or perceived - produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes politically inevitable.

Milton Friedman (1912 - 2006)

A Quote by Frank on government, politics, judicial, legal, law, and misconduct

It is well past time that the American people realize they can hold those in the Judicial Branch of our government - whether federal or state, whether judicial, prosecutorial or defensive in nature - responsible for misconduct and injecting politics into government. It is time for American's to wage an intellectual revolution against, not only political correctness, moral relativism and multiculturalism but the practice of placing politics before government.

A Quote by Ronald Wilson Reagan on stand, government, politics, vote, voting, business, and standing

Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation to get a government handout for your community? Realize that the doctor's fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can't socialize the doctors without socializing the patients. Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he'll eat you last.

Ronald Reagan (1911 -)

A Quote by Claude Anshin Thomas on peace, politics, war, way of life, and inner peace

Peace is not an idea.  Peace is not a political movement, not a theory or a dogma.  Peace is a way of life: living mindfully in the present moment . . .  It is not a question of politics but of actions.  It is not a matter of improving a political system or even taking care of homeless people alone.  These are valuable but will not alone end war and suffering.  We must simply stop the endless wars that rage within . . .  Imagine, if everyone stopped the war in themselves -- there would be no seeds from which war could grow.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on politics, death, nature, respect, worldview, interrelated, connections, unconnected, conscience, neglect, patience, and imagination

Only in a thoroughly unrelated world can we poison nature without conscience, neglect our children and the poor, and righteously slay thousands of enemy soldiers because we don't have the patience or imagination for negotiation.
