  1. This quote from Stevenson is very apropos to the political situation that we have today. It reminded me of another prescient quote from the past (nearly 100 years ago) in reference to the same topic:

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    —H.L. Mencken
