Quotes of the Day
Paradoxical Quote of the Day from Ben Stein:
“Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured … but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.”
Now add this, “Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.”
Look these up for yourself …
“Government is a disease … cleverly posing as its own cure.”
“Law is like the spider’s web … catches the fly and lets the hawk go free.”
“Democracy is like two wolves and a sheep … voting on what’s for dinner”
I suggest researching these quotes for yourself because I know you will find the sources to be fascinating … and they will lead to other information that will have you questioning who to vote for in the November election (and I don’t mean just the presidency).
Ben Stein’s quote is only one example of the rules and regulations put in place by representatives in federal, state, and local government that simply don’t make sense.
And here is one last thought. Plato once wrote, “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” We have relinquished our freedoms and our government to a corporatocracy because we, as individuals, have become complacent. Believe me when I tell you … the corporations have not relied on complacency.
From Wikipedia: Corporatocracy is a term used to suggest an economic and political system is controlled by corporations or corporate interests. Its use is generally pejorative
