“The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me.
They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office.
Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can’t get and to promise to give it to them.”
–American writer H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)
