>> elections, politics, democracy, and government.

Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.

A good politician is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.

Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.

Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.

If a politician found he had cannibals among his constituents, he would promise them missionaries for dinner. <<
