BENJAMIN FRANKLIN TALKS ABOUT THE STIMULUS PLAN

Posted by MAXIMUS

To help guide the way of Congressmen Rob Whitman, Congressman J. Randy Forbes, Congressman Bob Goodlatte, Congressman Eric Cantor, Congressman Frank Wolf, and Senators Jim Webb and Mark Warner on the "stimulus" package before Congress, lets hear the thoughts of Benjamin Franklin, truly the wisest American of all:

"All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse."
Benjamin Franklin

"If you would know the value of money, go try to borrow some; for he that goes a-borrowing goes a-sorrowing."
Benjamin Franklin

"There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government."
Benjamin Franklin

"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic."
Benjamin Franklin.

Benjamin Franklin had a remarkable impact in so many ways, especially in the area of economics and technological development. A Benjamin Franklin article just received the ‘Top 100 Electricity Blogs’ Award http://bit.ly/z8Ckp
