I think there ought to be a strict separation or wall built between our religious faith and our practice of political authority in office. I don't think the President of the United States should extoll Christianity if he happens to be a Christian at the expense of Judaism, Islam or other faiths.
When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.
The political object is the goal, war is the means of reaching it, and the means can never be considered in isolation from their purposes.
Carl von Clausewitz
Education remains the key to both economic and political empowerment.
There is massive propaganda for everyone to consume. Consumption is good for profits and consumption is good for the political establishment.
Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship. You're not allowed to speak your mind unless you're black, or unless you're a terrorist, or unless you're an Arab or a minority people. Then you can say what you like. But if you are like a lot of us you are not supposed to say certain things.
I detest politics, to be honest with you. It's a cesspool. And I don't think I would fare well in that cesspool because I don't believe in political correctness and I certainly don't believe in dishonesty.
The hardest thing about any political campaign is how to win without proving that you are unworthy of winning.
Adlai E. Stevenson

B. R. Ambedkar
When people learn no tools of judgment and merely follow their hopes, the seeds of political manipulation are sown.

The most perfect political community is one in which the middle class is in control, and outnumbers both of the other classes.
I think that both parties should declare the debt limit as a political weapon of mass destruction which can't be used. I mean, it is silly to have a country that has 237 years building up its reputation and then have people threaten to tear it down because they're not getting some other matter.
To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself, value yourself. And that's political, in its most profound way.
We need to seek wise leaders who will seek common ground among Americans instead of dividing us further for political gain. As citizens, we must embrace those who embrace ideas, thoughtfulness, civility and kindness to others no matter what their political beliefs.

Steven Van Zandt

John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
