" Those who want the Government to regulate matters of the mind and spirit are like men who are so afraid of being murdered that they commit suicide to avoid assassination." - Harry S Truman
I saw this over at my friend Steve's blog today and it seems so appropriate to describe much of the nonsense coming into politics today. It makes you wonder how many great or much needed political leaders never even consider running for public office because of the rhetoric and idiocy that seems to come with public service. Would Harry Truman even run for dog catcher today knowing that no matter what you do in that office, you are the enemy and loathed?
