Quote from John F. Shafroth,

"Republics are formed only after revolution. The change to the empire is slow and gradual. One of the saddest lessons of history is that whenever these schools of politics have met in the republics of old, the imperial school, with its dazzling influence of wealth and power, has always won."

[1854-1922] U.S. Congressman (R-CO), Governor of Colorado, and U.S. Senator (D-CO)
