Here are a few more political thoughts, these from the creator of The Hipplomats™.

"Most politicians who stand on their principles don't have far to fall."

"Law probably works better as a smoothe-running river than a constantly-raging surf."

"Every day politicians disprove the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, more popularly known as the Law of Entropy, which posits that sooner or later all things cool down and get simpler."

"Conservatives and liberals both proclaim that the world they envision is absolutely the best that we can hope for.  Just imagine how disappointing it will be if either is right."

"Filibustering might more aptly be named "Full-of-blustering."

"Truth protects us when we protect it."

"Good communication is the lifeblood of many things, not the least of which is democracy."

"How free a nation is may best be judged by how much its citizens can communicate without fear."

"Perhaps conservatives ask too little of government and liberals ask too much."

"Elections are the toilet paper of democracy, and often just as dirty."

"We live in a nation of laws and a nation of flaws. Unfortunately, at times the two can be difficult to distinguish from one another."

"We live in a nation of laws and a nation of flaws, and it is best not to mix them up."
