"The reason this country continues its drift toward socialism
and big nanny government is because too many people vote
in the expectation of getting something for nothing,
not because they have a concern for what is good for the country.
A better educated electorate might change the reason many persons vote.
If children were forced to learn about the Constitution,
about how government works, about how this nation came into being,
about taxes and about how government forever threatens the cause of
liberty perhaps we wouldn't see so many foolish ideas coming
out of the mouths of silly old men."
[Franklyn C. Nofziger] (1924-2006) American journalist, political consultant, author, Press Secretary for President Reagan
