What Would Will Rogers Say Today?

These are quotes from Will Rogers (1879-1935), American humorist, actor, and author:

~~ "The short memories of American voters is what keeps our politicians in office."

~~ "Wouldn't it be great if [other countries] started electing by the ballot instead of the bullet, and us electing by the ballot instead of the bullion?"

~~ "Take it all in all, I believe [Congress] ought to have their raise. We are a rich nation and our officials should be the best paid in the world. The principal bad feature is that it will make more men want to hold office, and once a man wants to hold office he is absolutely no good for honest work."

~~ "We have the best Congress money can buy."

~~ "I'm not a member of any organized political party. I'm a Democrat."
