"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

To people occupying the halls of power like Donald Regan that openly provide us quotes like:
"Power corrupts. Absolute power is kind of neat."

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.
