Majority rule will only work if you're considering individual rights. You can't have five wolves and one sheep vote on what they want to have for supper
Behind the big names of twentieth-century literature there stands a shadow cabinet of writers waiting to take over once the Wind of Change has blown. My own Vote goes to Hugh Kingsmill as leader of this opposition.hugh kingsmill
Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.bernard baruch
Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society , hence they do not believe in Vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals . We look away from government for relief, because we know that force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of force through governments flows nearly all the misery , poverty , crime and confusion existing in society .
Tonight, nobody could Vote for their own country, but it is good to be able to Vote and it is good to have a choice. Good luck on your journey, Azerbaijan. Europe is watching you!anke engelke
We go by the major Vote, and if the majority are insane, the sane must go to the hospital. As Satan said, "Evil, be thou my good," so they say, "Darkness, bo thou my light."horace mann
The fate of the country does not depend on how you Vote at the polls — the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot-box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning.Henry David Thoreau
The citizen who thinks he sees that the commonwealth's political clothes are worn out, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate for a new suit, is disloyal, he is a traitor. That he may be the only one who thinks he sees this decay, does not excuse him: it is his duty to agitate anyway, and it is the duty of others to Vote him down if they do not see the matter as he does.mark twain
I am now here in Congress... I am at liberty to Vote as my conscience and judgment dictates to be right, without the yoke of any party on me, or the driver at my heels, with his whip in hand, commanding me to ge-wo-haw, just at his pleasure. Look at my arms, you will find no party hand-cuff on them!
They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to Vote and assemble and disagree with each other.
Sheep run to the slaughterhouse, silent and hopeless, but at least sheep never Vote for the butcher who kills them or the people who devour them. More beastly than any beast, more sheepish than any sheep, the voter names his own executioner and chooses his own devourer, and for this precious "right" a revolution was fought.
I've had some wonderful ideas for getting the dominating going. I've got some extremely subtle advertising slogans that should get the public behind us. Things like "Vote for EL Wisty and lovely nude ladies will come and dance with you." It's a complete lie, of course, but you can't afford to be too scrupulous if you're going to dominate the world.Peter Cook
When you learn to make everybody happy, you will possess the golden secret of how to milk the contented voters. But do it in such a way that they won’t think you want them to Vote for you just because you need the money.They need the money, and besides, they can think up other reasons if they try.gracie allen
I am now here in Congress... I am at liberty to Vote as my conscience and judgment dictates to be right, without the yoke of any party on me, or the driver at my heels, with his whip in hand, commanding me to ge-wo-haw, just at his pleasure. Look at my arms, you will find no party hand-cuff on them!davy crockett
If you want to sell your Vote, go ahead; it's a free country. But be sure you get something for it... You can't get both justice and the two dollars.
I said bluntly that if the president were to follow Mr. Clifford's advice and if in the elections I were to Vote, I would Vote against the president.george marshall
Richard Nixon has never been one of my favorite people anyway. For years I've regarded his existence as a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosomes that corrupt the possibilities of the American Dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad. The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn't imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to Vote Democratic but couldn't quite reach the lever on the voting machine.hunter s. thompson
I have Italian citizens in too good consideration to think that there are so many voting assholes (literally: "coglioni" , rude word for testicles) around which could Vote against their own interests. I apologize for the rude but effective language.Silvio Berlusconi
I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to Vote.ann coulter
The conception of political equality from the Declaration of Independence, to Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, to the Fifteenth, Seventeenth, and Nineteenth Amendments could mean only one thing one person, one Vote.william o. douglas
The Chancellor has delivered his first budget but it's the same old Tories ; hitting hardest at those who can least afford it and breaking their promises. This is true to form for the Tories, but it includes things that the Liberal Democrats have always fought against. Surely they cannot Vote for this.harriet harman
In Walt Whitman democracy is carried into psychology and morals . The various sights, moods, and emotions are given each one Vote; they are declared to be all free and equal, and the innumerable commonplace moments of life are suffered to speak like the others. Those moments formerly reputed great are not excluded, but they are made to march in the ranks with their companions plain foot-soldiers and servants of the hour.george santayana
Incidentally, the next time some war-mongering wise-ass tries to tell you that one reason we're in the middle east is to enhance the civil rights and social equality of women, remind them that we very enthusiastically destroyed the most secular country over there, where women could dress as they liked, have good jobs, be literate, and Vote.l. neil smith
Half the American people never read a newspaper. Half never Vote for President the same half?gore vidal
The European parliament has suddenly come into its own. It marks another shift in power between the three central EU institutions. Last week's Vote suggests that the directly elected MEPs, in spite of their multitude of ideological, national and historical allegiances, have started to coalesce as a serious and effective EU institution, just as enlargement has greatly complicated negotiations inside both the Council and Commission.
...in a little place called El Salvador, a Republican president, Ronald Reagan, provided that little shield around that government, while they stood up and had free elections and brought freedom to El Salvador... that lady in El Salvador who stood there in the line for the elections... she had a bullet hole in her arm and she was asked, do you want to go to the aid station, and she said, yes, but first, I Vote.
