People are inherently drawn toward that, which is their greatest [and potentially destructive] human weakness: Alcoholics to Alcohol, Junkies to Drugs, Gamblers to Casinos, Sex Addicts to Prostitutes, Robbers to Banks... and Politicians to: Money, Notoriety, and Raw Political Power.

  1. I enjoyed the quotes. They just go to show that things never change when it comes to politics.
