Thoughts about Politics

  1. The ones who want political office the most may be the ones who deserve it the least.
  2. We'll never know how many Churchills and de Gaulles went into the political wilderness and never found their way back.
  3. In most cases, it is wiser to fear cozy agreement more than gridlock.
  4. Reporters and politicians should not socialize. 
  5. Beware of any judge who lets personal feelings replace the law.
  6. A journalist who claims that objectivity is impossible should not be a journalist.
  7. Some of the most evil political movements in history were started by young idealists.
  8. The subject of government is not a science and universities look foolish when they pretend that it is.
  9. The best approach to government is to assume that the best people will seldom be in control and not to trust them if they are.
  10. Any organization whose basic power depends upon the ability to physically coerce people bears watching.
