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
Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.bernard baruch
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
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 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!
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 .
The elitist attitude is basically suspicious of, and hostile to, themarket precisely becausethemarket issovulgarly democraticone dollar, one Vote.Norman Krasna
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
Since 1990, the American Dialect Society has included in its annual meeting a Vote on Words of the Year, the words that were most notable, prominent, and characteristic of the discourse of the year just past.
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.
We are making politics a spectator sport in which our only duty is to Vote somebody into office and then retire to the grandstands.David Richmond Gergen
The primordial argument against giving woman the Vote is that that Vote would not represent physical force.SirAlmroth Edward Wright
The woman voter would be pernicious to the State not only because she could not back her Vote by physical force, but also by reason of her intellectual defects.SirAlmroth Edward Wright
Back in 2000 a Republican friend warned me that if I voted for Al Gore and he won, the stock market would tank, we'd lose millions of jobs, and our military would be totally overstretched. You know what? I did Vote for Al Gore, he did win, and I'll be damned if all those things didn't come true!james carville
Times are ripe to discuss about the Vote right, at least on an administrative level, for immigrant persons.gianfranco fini
(President Nixon,) in the face of a Vote to impeach he might try, as "commander-in-chief", to use military forces to keep himself in power.carl rowan
"Dear Mr. Lincoln, We Coloreds have taken a Vote and decided that we don't cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!"mark williams
The right to Vote, or equal civil rights, may be good demands, but true emancipation begins neither at the polls nor in courts. It begins in woman's soul.emma goldman
However, what Article VI [of the U.S. Constitution] does not do, and was never intended to do, is deny me the right to say, as loudly as I may choose, that I will on no account Vote for a smirking hick like Mike Huckabee, who is an unusually stupid primate but who does not have the elementary intelligence to recognize the fact that this is what he is.mike huckabee
Sink or swim, live or die, survive or perish, I give my hand and heart to this Vote.Daniel Webster
He votes as a Southern man, and votes sectionally; I am also a Southern man, but Vote nationally on national questions.
A Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation in evil, and so unworthy to present himself for holy Communion, if he were to deliberately Vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate's permissive stand on abortion and/or euthanasia. When a Catholic does not share a candidate's stand in favor of abortion and/or euthanasia, but votes for that candidate for other reasons, it is considered remote material cooperation, which can be permitted in the presence of proportionate reasons.
