Voting: The Two-Edged Sword

These pithy quotes, from Black Swan Trading:

  • “Vote: the instrument and symbol of a freeman’s power to make a fool of himself and a wreck of his country.” ‐‐ Ambrose Bierce
  • “Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one’s government is not necessarily to secure freedom.” – Friedrich Hayek
  • “Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.” – John Quincy Adams
  • “Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man; we never get to vote on what he is to do.” ‐‐ Will Rogers
