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
