Media people should have long noses like an elephant to smell out politicians, mayors, prime ministers and businessmen. We need to know the reality, the good and the bad, not just the appearance.
The cause of the great War of the Rebellion against the United Status will have to be attributed to slavery. For some years before the war began it was a trite saying among some politicians that "A state half slave and half free cannot exist." All must become slave or all free, or the state will go down. I took no part myself in any such view of the case at the time, but since the war is over, reviewing the whole question, I have come to the conclusion that the saying is quite true.ulysses s. grant
The politicians pontificate and manoeuvre with eloquent manifestos and pronouncements saying little about the challenges we must confront.ratu joni madraiwiwi
There's nothing noble or selfless about politicians and there never has been. Putting it charitably, Profiles in Courage is a compendium of Democratic mythology, ghostwritten for an ambitious young Massachusetts Senator who never did a thing for himself if he could pay to have it done by others.l. neil smith

Deliver me from your cold phlegmatic preachers, politicians, friends, lovers and husbands.Abigail Adams
In a cruel irony, speculators - rather then elected politicians - are the shots on crisis management. In an absurd logic, those who foster financial turbulence have been invited by the G7 Finance ministers to identify policies which attenuate financial turbulence.michel chossudovsky
The possibility that empathy resides in parts of the brain so ancient that we share them with rats should give pause to anyone comparing politicians with those poor, underestimated creatures.frans de waal
Furthermore, all the Western politicians, intellectuals and journalists are obliged to pay homage and bow to the monument that commemorates those allegedly killed in the Nazi concentration camps. In other words, all should acknowledge the veracity of something that has not been proven! This is also one of the propaganda means being applied by the Zionists to portray themselves as the victims of persecution!ali khamenei
What is any political campaign save a concerted effort to turn out a set of politicians who are admittedly bad and put in a set who are thought to be better. The former assumption, I believe is always sound; the latter is just as certainly false. For if experience teaches us anything at all it teaches us this: that a good politician, under democracy, is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.h. l. mencken
We need to decide that we will not go to war, whatever reason is conjured up by the politicians or the media, because war in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children. War is terrorism, magnified a hundred times.howard zinn
Any politico who's afraid of his constituents being armed, should be. Leaders of the anti-gun movement (for the most part, politicians who enthusiastically advocate confiscatory taxation and government control of everything) realize that a populace is much easier to herd, loot and dispose of if it has been stripped of its weapons. The naked fraud and transparent fascism of victim disarmament must be eradicated through the repeal of all gun laws at every level of government.
Wars are fought by teenagers, you realize that. They really ought to be fought by the politicians and old people who start these wars.james clavell
One of the biggest roles of science fiction is to prepare people to accept the future without pain and to encourage a flexibility of mind . politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories. Two-thirds of 2001 is realistic hardware and technology to establish background for the metaphysical , philosophical , and religious meanings later.arthur c. clarke
I learned early that business is business and politics is politics. The proof is how few important businessmen have made good politicians. They may think that they are very smart about everything because they made millions of dollars by digging a hole in the ground and finding oil, but the talent and luck needed to become rich are not the same talent and luck needed to succeed on Parliament Hill.jean chrétien
It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged.gilbert keith chesterton
The political philosophy of black nationalism means: we must control the politics and the politicians of our community.malcolm (malcolm little) x
I did not share the enthusiasm of certain politicians for the National Front leader, it was because I had noticed, in the past, some strange contradictions between Mossadeq's declared ends and his actions. Officially he defended nationalist anti-colonialism and was the most intransigent patriot who declared that no concessions or advantages should be granted to foreign powers. He described his doctrine as a "negative balance" and in fact his greatest failing was that he was negative.muhammad reza pahlavi
Liberty sets the mind free , fosters independence and unorthodox thinking and ideas. But it does not offer instant prosperity or happiness and wealth to everyone. This is something that politicians in particular must keep in mind.Boris Yeltsin
It is common also to censure some one class of men the rich or the educated, the manufacturers, the merchants, or the politicians, for example as if the sin rested solely with them, while it belongs to society at large.
The world is weary of statesmen whom democracy has degraded into politicians.benjamin disraeli
If those in charge of our society politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television can dominate our ideas , they will be secure in their power . They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves.
politicians only get to the top because they have no qualifications to detain them at the bottom.peter ustinov
