Happy President’s Day… a few quotes from Presidential History which we might apply today…

If only Mount Rushmore could talk! Think what thoughts these great and former Presidents might have on the anti-Union aggression of Gov. Scott Walker and his minions…

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

- George Washington

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.”

- Thomas Jefferson

“These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert, to fleece the people”

- Abraham Lincoln

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”

- Theodore Roosevelt
