Eugene Debs: if you go to Washington

"If you go to the city of Washington, you will find that almost all of those corporation lawyers and cowardly politicians, members of congress, and mis-representatives of the masses claim, in glowing terms, that they have risen from the ranks to places of eminence and distinction. I am very glad that I cannot make that claim for myself. I would be ashamed to admit that I had risen from the ranks. When I rise it will be with the ranks, and not from the ranks." Eugene V. Debs, Socialist, Activist, Presidential Candidate (1855-1926)

Eugene V. Debs#


Here's a link to a previous article on Debs where I give Debs' natal chart details along with more pertinent words from the man himself:

Eugene Debs still speaks convincingly demonstrates a quote which shows a directness which *most political Washingtonians of 2008 sorely lack--they're too busy trying to create the illusion of infallibility and keep their bald patooties covered!

*Even if I fail to say so, I always keep in mind that there possibly could be 1-2% of them infesting DC who actually mean well--but look who they have to deal with. Hang out with charlatans, scoundrels, and scalliwags long enough and you know what that makes you!

Not sure how to contact you... I love your blog. Here is an interesting article about a shady deal McCain made that hurt the Navaho.
