Kurt Vonnegut, "Cat's Cradle"

"The one thing our Founding Fathers could not foresee -- they were farmers, professional men, businessmen giving of their time and effort to an idea that became a country -- was a nation governed by professional politicians who had an interest in getting re-elected.

--Ronald Reagan
