Some More Hipplomats-isms

More musings of the creator of The Hipplomats™.

"If you sign an agreement with someone you know is a fool, you'll have an agreement signed by two fools."

"Lawmakers who exempt themselves from the very laws they pass should be immediately exempted from their elected offices."

"Because of what it takes to be re-elected, we really have no one to blame but ourselves when we RE-ELECT ANYONE!"

"The utter folly of bureaucrats is their unwavering self-deception that they know the best way to get something done."

"We should be thankful that some elections do come when we need them the most."

"It is as difficult for most politicians to refuse bribes as it is for roosters to avoid crowing at sunrise."

"All free men and women must ever be on guard against those convinced they've been ordained to protect us from ourselves."

"There appears to be ample evidence that elected office is often the 'gateway drug' to utter moral deterioration."

"Politics is far too often the verbalization of abject ignorance."

"Perhaps the best way to show bureaucrats how unnecessary their present jobs are is to make them get real jobs."

"During the horrible financial crisis of 2008, the banks philosophy was that 'the lend justified their means'."

"Basing a stupid action on noble motives doesn't make it any less stupid."

"Governments must only be granted the powers that they absolutely need, not the ones that the corrupt claim would make the country better for all."

"As one grows older, it becomes clearer that most politicians are prostitutes and special interests are their pimps."
