"A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul." George Bernard Shaw

This is a terrific quote from Shaw.  In fact it's one of my favorite.  Its so simple and yet so true about any Government, ancient or current, and unfortunately future.


  1. Absolutely true with just a few words.
    Who would've imagined that after all this years, it would still apply?

  2. As true on his time than it is now.

  3. As in, when the american big businesses get the tax breaks and the bailouts, while the average citizen suffers, the government can always depend on big business? great
