A great play on words. It also has an element of Truth which magnifys the impact of the statement.

    Great quote. And there is an excellent biographical story of Crocket and his views on welfare which can be found by seaching his name and welfare. He was a wise and Honest man, a rarity in government today.

    A clever play on words, which does not mean that they speak truth... or have anything at all to do with the constitution or welfare.
