Right-Wing Slogans #1

“A Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have.”

This idiotic slogan is popular on bumper stickers and on conservative websites. It is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but is actually a quote of President Gerald Ford taken from an address to a joint session of Congress on August 12th, 1974. I have come up with a counter-slogan for this:

“Businesses big enough to own the government are big enough to take everything you have!”

    Bumper stickers seem to be a very American thing, and are rarely seen in the UK. I cannot imagine that Ford ever uttered anything worth putting in print anywhere, except perhaps on toilet paper!
    Best wishes from England. Pete.

    Yes I thought as much, about the bumper stickers being an American thing. I think they’re silly – and tacky.
