Political Aphorisms


If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.
~Jay Leno~


The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
~Henry Cate , VII~


If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven.
~Will Rogers~


Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
~Nikita Khrushchev~


Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
~Author unknown~


Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.
~John Quinton~


Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
~Oscar Ameringer ~


I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.
~Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952~


I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.
~Charles de Gaulle~


Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
~Doug Larson~


There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on Congressmen.
~Will Rogers~


And Ima's three favorites ---


A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
~ Tex Guinan ~ [Ima would add "or the lives of your children"]


When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it.
~Clarence Darrow~


We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office
~Aesop~ [Ima would change the word "great" to "worst"!]

    Thanks for these! The Khrushchev quote really cracked me up - to think that the guy who banged his shoe on that conference table said that :)

    We just need to put new ones in there and keep rotating them out after they serve one term and also have it so that they don't go out with a million dollar pay from us.
