Let’s reflect on this over the weekend.
“We need to remember,” says Joe Biden, “that the government isn’t some foreign force in a distant capital. No, it’s all of us. All of us.”
“We don’t recall ever making any decision for the government… nor ever having the slightest influence over any decision the government ever made. Nobody ever asked our opinion, and our vote was inconsequential. Apparently, “all of us” does not include us.”
“Instead, decisions are made by others – lobbyists, legislative aides, bureaucrats, hacks, and cronies.”
“In the American Rescue Plan, for example, $520 billion goes to the 90% of the eligible public. The rest – $1.4 trillion – is shared about among those with good lobbyists” - BILL BONNER
“Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm.” -James Madison
