People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.
The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.
By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete actions, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.

Ok I know what I am about to say will make me very unpopular.
I am not impressed with Ron Paul.
There is a responce I've learned that works perfectly for young children and very old people when they end a story that I had to listen to because I want to be polite. I wanted to use it as he finished his speech, it goes like this.
To Mr. Paul I say this "What if we awarded you Mr. Obvious 2009 and it was true."
When I first started to hear some of the praise for Mr. Paul some time ago I was like "Gotta check this guy out!" and then I did.
Phantom Menace level let down.
Still, I will continue to watch and listen, maybe he will grow into the leader so many hope he can be.
