Will Rogers on Government & Politics
  • “I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.”  
  • “With Congress, every time they make a joke it’s a law, and every time they make a law it’s a joke.”
  • “Never blame a legislative body for not doing something. When they do nothing, that don’t hurt anybody. When they do something is when they become dangerous.”
  • “Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.”
  • “The trouble with practical jokes is that very often they get elected.”
  • “The short memories of American voters is what keeps our politicians in office.”
  • “The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that’s out always looks the best.”
  • “Our public men are speaking every day on something, but they ain’t saying anything.”
  • “The budget is a mythical bean bag. Congress votes mythical beans into it, and then tries to reach in and pull real beans out.”
  • “If you ever injected truth into politics you have no politics.”
  • “Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.”
  • “The income tax has made liars out of more Americans than golf.”
  • “The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”
  • “I don’t want to complain, but every time they build a tax structure, the first thing they nail is me.”
