    I personally am not thrilled with Carly Fiorina. But she cannot be worse than Barbara Boxer.

    Nice quote of Jefferson. Here are some other quotes;

    This one is for the Cali electorate! Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy, the whores are us.
    P. J. O’Rourke

    One of my favorite Washington quotes: Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
    George Washington

    Another Jefferson quote: It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.
    Thomas Jefferson

    This is a reminder to our friends in Chicago; It’s not the voting that’s democracy; it’s the counting.
    Tom Stoppard

    This is for the dimwits that thought they could pull a fast one with the tax and trade bill; Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
    James Madison Thank God, we armed ourselves with knowledge before that bit of insanity got through! To those still hoping for such madness, ahahahahahhhahahah!!!

    For those worried about gridlock, That government is best which governs least.
    Henry David Thoreau (This was a paraphrase of other similar quotes by earlier political theorists.)

    Just some points to ponder and to brighten days.
