Chesterton and Mencken Speak to Politicians

Stolen from Patriot Post:

"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."

—H. L. Mencken

S'pose he met "WWIII Newt"?

"We are perpetually being told that what is wanted is a strong man who will do things. What is really wanted is a strong man who will undo things; and that will be the real test of strength."

—G.K. Chesterton

Calling all "Republicans"!!!
