A Will Rogers Political Sampler



A sample of quotes from 20th century American humorist Will Rogers: The income tax has made more liars out of the American people than golf has. Our constitution protects aliens, drunks and U.S. senators. There’s no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you. About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation. I have a scheme for stopping war. It’s this — no nation is allowed to enter a war till they have paid for the last one. The more you read and observe about this politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other.
