    My favorite is H. L. Mencken’s “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

      Yes, Mencken had many good political observations, such as this prescient one: “On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    Very fitting and yes some things never change. Or is it the more things change, the more they stay the same?
