Politics

If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.

The problem with political jokes is they get elected.

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.

If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven.

Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it.

Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.

Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.

I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.

A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.

I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.

Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.

There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on Congressmen.

  7. I hate politics and politicians. I wish they would do what do what they say but realizing that they are liars. If the world was made up of good people ( not politicians ) our lives would be much better.
    Have a fantastic Tuesday Sandee. I hope where you are at is warm and beautiful. See ya.

  10. Love this one, "Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks". Regularly, might I add. I have been deeply involved in politics for years. My kids have grown up in Senator's offices, but the above joke should be approved as policy after one tern for all politicians, just to keep them humble.

    1. I agree with the one term part. I've been around many of them and they are something else. Don't care for them one bit. :)
