Quote of the day

28 January 2012


We live under a republican form of government. We need forever to remember that representative government does represent. A careless, indifferent representative is the result of a careless, indifferent electorate. The people who start to elect a man to get what he can for his district will probably find they have elected a man who will get what he can for himself.

Calvin Coolidge,
On the Nature of Politics, 12 May 1915
