Will Rogers Tribute to Political Parties

After a big political organizing season, let's take a moment of levity and enjoy the grassroots humor of fellow Oklahoman, Will Rogers.

 He was a Democrat, back when the Democrat conventions didn't look like freak shows and panhandling was still looked down upon.

“The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets.”

Rogers was a supporter of education, but he defined education quite a bit differently than bureaucrats today do.

“A fool and his money are soon elected.”

— Will Rogers

Will didn't mince words about the lack of common sense in the halls of government.

And Rogers had little patience for bad representation. He knew it was hard to unseat an incumbent, but he always was an optimist.

“Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.”

— Will Rogers
