Politics Over Economics

If getting money is our job,
and politics (if anything) is but our hobby,
then the aim of our politics
will necessarily
become a servant
of our money.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. -- Sam Adams, 1776
