I was going to post this on Tuesday, but with all the early voting, I decided to put it out there tonight.

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.
- Andrew Lack

Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
- Jerry Garcia

Half of the American people never read a newspaper.
Half never voted for President.
One hopes it is the same half.

- Gore Vidal

The best argument against democracy
is a five minute conversation with the average voter.

- Winston Churchill

Democracy is the recurrent suspicion
that more than half of the people are right
more than half of the time.

- A.E. Smith

It's not the voting that's democracy;
it's the counting.

- Tom Stoppard

Those who stay away from the election
think that one vote will do no good:
'Tis but one step more to think one vote will do no harm.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. I love it, I love it, I love it!! Great quotes.

  2. Excellent quotes! Vote!

  3. Good reminders! One tends to feel insiginificant in the machine of politics, but I'm glad to be reminded that is not case.

    It's a huge day for our country. My husband and I are going to vote as soon as my day at school is over; it's been a long day of no kids but lots of conferences!

    I feel certain that Obama will win, everyone in my blogging/teaching world is voting for him. Oh, well, I've often stood alone (;), and I always live in trust that the right things happen for our eventual good.

  4. These are great! I especially love the Churchill quote!
