A Nurse With Attitude

Where Dark Cynical Humor, Nursing Issues, and Politics Seem to Merge

History will repeat itself… God help us

Does this sound familiar? It is a quote from the great one. He was my number two favorite President… just after Ron.

“The Roman Republic fell, not because of the ambition of Caesar or Augustus, but because it had already long ceased to be in any real sense a republic at all. When the Roman citizen, who once lived by his own labor,  had been changed into an idle creature who craved nothing in life but the gratification of a thirst for vapid excitement.  He was fed and clothed by the state, and directly or indirectly sold his vote.   This is when the end of the republic was at hand, and nothing could save it. The laws were the same as they had been, but the people behind the laws had changed, and so the laws counted for nothing.” – President Theodore Roosevelt

October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919

    Bravo. Nurse with an Attitude. I too like TR. Great quote you have put here. Thanks. Me like the ol’ Trustbuster. We should all post fav Theodore quotes more often. Here’s one I like: ”The Republican party is now facing a great crisis. It is to decide whether it will be, as in the days of Lincoln, the party of the plain people, the party of progress, the party of social and industrial justice; or whether it will be the party of privilege and of special interests, the heir to those who were Lincoln’s most bitter opponents, the party that represents the great interests within and with out Wall Street which desire through their control over the servants of the pubic to be kept immune from punishment when they do wrong and to be given privileges to which they are not entitled”. – Theodore Roosevelt
