I thought I'd share the wisdom of two presidents today. The first is one everyone knows, and the second is someone hardly anyone knows. But both seem relevant at this time.
George Washington: If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
James Polk: The passion for office among members of Congress is very great, if not absolutely disreputable, and greatly embarrasses the operations of the Government. They create offices by their own votes and then seek to fill them themselves.
