"War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few."

- James Madison

Fiscal Responsibility

For those who wonder why the fiscal issues of government have become so irresponsibly out of mishandled around the world, you only have to look back a hundred years+ for the answer:

"...for the great problems, granting that they let themselves be grasped at all, do not let themselves be held by toads and weaklings..."

And is there a more judicious description of politicians than 'toads and weaklings'?
