#1. The only way I won't be re-elected is if I were found in bed with a dead girl or a live boy. - Author: Edwin Edwards
Politics Louisiana quotes by Edwin Edwards
#2. What conclusion is to be drawn from this paradox so worthy of being born in our time; and what will become of virtue when one has to get rich at all cost?
The ancient political thinkers forever spoke of morals and of virtue; ours speak only of commerce and money. - Author: Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Politics Louisiana quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#3. The more central problem of money in politics is something just as troubling but much harder to see: a system in which economic inequalities, inevitable in a free market economy, are transformed into political inequalities that affect both electoral and legislative outcomes. - Author: Richard L. Hasen
Politics Louisiana quotes by Richard L. Hasen
#4. I don't really think it's appropriate for me to be picking and choosing in the primaries. It's pretty dumb politics for a Republican to choose between Republicans in a contested primary because obviously you're going to be offending some people. - Author: John Cornyn
Politics Louisiana quotes by John Cornyn
#5. We fail to take responsibility, to act productively in the interest of ourselves and others. And in our attempts at a better life, we are often severely limited or thwarted by the immature and socially inept behavior of ourselves and others. There is a great fabric of relations, behaviors and emotions, reverberating with human and animal bliss and suffering, a web of intimate and formal relations, both direct and indirect. Nasty whirlwinds of feedback cycles blow through this great multidimensional web, pulsating with hurt and degradation. My lacking human development blocks your possible human development. My lack of understanding of you, your needs perspectives, hurts you in a million subtle ways. I become a bad lover, a bad colleague, a bad fellow citizen and human being. We are interconnected: You cannot get away from my hurt and wounds. They will follow you all of your life - I will be your daughter's abusive boyfriend, your belligerent neighbor from hell. And you will never grow wings because there will always be mean bosses, misunderstanding families and envious friends. And you will tell yourself that is how life must be. But it is not how life has to be. Once you begin to be able to see the social-psychological fabric of everyday life, it becomes increasingly apparent that the fabric is relatively easy to change, to develop. Metamodern politics aims to make everyone secure at the deepest psychological level, so that we can live authentically; a byproduct of which is - Author: Hanzi Freinacht
Politics Louisiana quotes by Hanzi Freinacht
#6. Politics is not perfect but it's the best available nonviolent means of changing how we live. - Author: Maynard Jackson
Politics Louisiana quotes by Maynard Jackson
#7. Contact often has the effect of hardening hostilities, not dissolving barriers. This effect is common in politics. When Jesse Jackson was running for the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party, his percentage of the white vote was consistently highest in those states with the fewest blacks. Whites with the most actual contact with blacks were least likely to vote for him. The same was true in 2008 during Barack Obama's Democratic primary campaigns. He won the highest percentages of the white vote in states such as Iowa, which has few blacks, and the lowest percentages in states with large black populations. Bernard N. Grofman of the University of California, Irvine has found a reliable political correlation: As the number of blacks rises, more whites vote Republican - and the less likely they are to vote for black candidates. It is whites whose knowledge about blacks is filtered by the media rather than gained first-hand who have the most favorable impression of them. The alleged benefits of diversity seem illusory to the people who actually experience it. - Author: Jared Taylor
Politics Louisiana quotes by Jared Taylor
#8. Transcending divisiveness is one of the dreams of centrists, as if disagreement were a bad habit rather than fundamental to politics. - Author: Doug Henwood
Politics Louisiana quotes by Doug Henwood
#9. You have to take away some of tax breaks for the wealthy, and you have to cut back on some entitlements. Because, unless we do all of these things, it just doesn't work. And what's good theater and what's good politics isn't necessarily good economic policy. - Author: Michael Bloomberg
Politics Louisiana quotes by Michael Bloomberg
#10. Politicians tend to live "in character" and many a public figure has come to imitate the journalism that describes him. - Author: Walter Lippmann
Politics Louisiana quotes by Walter Lippmann
#11. I often thought that if there had been a good rap group around in those days, I might have chosen a career in music instead of politics. - Author: Richard M. Nixon
Politics Louisiana quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#12. There's a feeling of power in reserve, a power that drives right through the bone, like the shiver you sense in the shaft of an axe when you take it into your hand. You can strike, or you can not strike, and if you choose to hold back the blow, you can still feel inside you the resonance of the omitted thing. - Author: Hilary Mantel
Politics Louisiana quotes by Hilary Mantel
#13. I've always regarded it as a test of character to dislike the Kennedys. I don't really respect anyone who falls for Camelot. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Politics Louisiana quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#14. People are kept unaware of the reality, with the sweet and illusive candy of nationalism. They are made to believe in their bones that killing people in the name of sovereignty is the most glorious act of all - they are made to believe that the citizens of the neighboring country are their arch-enemies - they are made to believe that nationality is far greater than humanity. They are made to believe that surgical strikes against the nation across the border is a great patriotic deed - they are made to believe that raising wall and separating children from their parents are deeds of great glory. In short, politicians (not all) in the government keep doing whatever they desire, and the citizens choose to keep their mouth silent in obedience because that to them is the greatest act of patriotism. In short, to these spineless citizens, their country is always right and the neighboring country is always wrong - their country is always good and the neighboring country is always evil - their country is always on the side of ethics and morality, and the neighboring country is always on the side of moral degradation. And this has been going on since the rise of human civilization across the world. When will this change, one wonders! And the answer is now. You change - just you - you the individual - you the one human - and slowly but surely, little by little, the entire society will change. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Politics Louisiana quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#15. The cultural forces that help politically sustain both the militaristic and the corporate function of the Deep State, however, are growing more irrational and antiscience. A military tradition that glories in force and appeals to self-sacrifice is the polar opposite of the Enlightenment heritate of rationality, the search for peace, and a belief in the common destiny of mankind. The warrior-leader, like the witch doctor, ultimately appeals to irrational emotionalism; and the cultural psychology that produces the bravest and most loyal warriors is a mind-set that is usually hostile to the sort of free inquiry of which scientific progress depends. This dynamic is observable in Afghanistan: no outside power has been able to conquer and pacify that society for millennia because of the tenacity of its warrior spirit; yet the country has one of the highest illiteracy rates on earth and is barely out of the Bronze Age in social development. p 260 - Author: Mike Lofgren
Politics Louisiana quotes by Mike Lofgren
#16. If pro is the opposite of con, what is the opposite of Congress? - Author: Will Rogers
Politics Louisiana quotes by Will Rogers
#17. A party of order or stability, and a party of progress or reform, are both necessary elements of a healthy state of political life. - Author: John Stuart Mill
Politics Louisiana quotes by John Stuart Mill
#18. We are in the presence," said Winston Churchill, "of a crime without a name." Its perpetrators were human beings, operating with initiative and creativity in political circumstances of their own making. State destruction did not alter politics, but rather created a new form of politics, which enabled a new kind of crime. The - Author: Timothy Snyder
Politics Louisiana quotes by Timothy Snyder
#19. Laws become fragile under the influence of dictators. - Author: Wayne Gerard Trotman
Politics Louisiana quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#20. The greater the wealth the thicker will be the dirt. - Author: John Kenneth Galbraith
Politics Louisiana quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#21. But crossing into Louisiana I got this haunted little rill of feeling -- there was moss and mud everywhere and an inexplicable, hollow sensation that Louisiana is what would be left of the South after it has been nuked -- that I and everything around me were irretrievably rotten. - Author: Padgett Powell
Politics Louisiana quotes by Padgett Powell
#22. Thanks to TV and for the convenience of TV, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Politics Louisiana quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#23. We are hurtling back into a Soviet abyss, into an information vacuum that spells death from our own ignorance. All we have left is the internet, where information is still freely available. For the rest, if you want to go on working as a journalist, it's total servility to Putin. Otherwise, it can be death, the bullet, poison, or trial - whatever our special services, Putin's guard dogs, see fit. - Author: Anna Politkovskaya
Politics Louisiana quotes by Anna Politkovskaya
#24. It's natural for people to protect what they know instead of leaping into the unknown, and managers are no exception. Managers might even be worse, as the politics they rely on to survive can make them more entrenched and defensive. - Author: Scott Berkun
Politics Louisiana quotes by Scott Berkun
#25. The difference between the men and the boys in politics is, and always has been, that the boys want to be something, while the men want to do something. - Author: Eric Sevareid
Politics Louisiana quotes by Eric Sevareid
#26. The black man in North America was sickest of all politically. He let the white man divide him into such foolishness as considering himself a black 'Democrat,' a black 'Republican,' a black 'Conservative,' or a black 'Liberal' ... when a ten-million black vote bloc could be the deciding balance of power in American politics, because the white man's vote is almost always evenly divided. - Author: Malcolm X
Politics Louisiana quotes by Malcolm X
#27. Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones and pray for the ones who don't know? Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble, and sob for the ones left below? - Author: Alan Jackson
Politics Louisiana quotes by Alan Jackson
#28. If everybody in this town connected with politics had to leave town because of chasing women and drinking, you would have no government. - Author: Barry Goldwater
Politics Louisiana quotes by Barry Goldwater
#29. There should be relentless exposure of and attack upon every evil practice, whether in politics, in business, or in social life. I hail as a benefactor every writer or speaker, every man who, on the platform, or in book, magazine or newspaper, with merciless severity makes such attack, provided always that he in his turn remembers that the attack is of use only if it is absolutely truthful. - Author: Theodore Roosevelt
Politics Louisiana quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#30. I'm worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel - let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what they're doing. I'm concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine that's handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers. - Author: Howard Zinn
Politics Louisiana quotes by Howard Zinn
#31. All is made clear,regarding Abraham and Sarah's traversal into Egypt, when we realize what biblicists meant by the term "Egypt." As Ralph Ellis so brilliantly points out, the name Egypt was employed by the composers of the Old Testament to denote Thebes in Lower Egypt. This was the city and region controlled by the adversaries of the Hyksos. It was considered a separate region, with different rulers, gods, customs, and politics. So, it was not the country of Egypt that Abraham visited, but Thebes within Egypt. - Author: Michael Tsarion
Politics Louisiana quotes by Michael Tsarion
