              If we have Senators and Congressmen there that can't protect themselves against the evil temptations of lobbyists, we don't need to change our lobbies, we need to change our representatives.

                                                  Ohio claims they are due a president as they haven't had one since Taft. Look at the United States, they have not had one since Lincoln.

                                                        The more that learn to read the less learn how to make a living. That's one thing about a little education. It spoils you for actual work. The more you know the more you think somebody owes you a living.
