Quote of the day

With today’s quote, the legend Thomas Sowell will help us to better understand politics and the (often) mysterious decisions made by politicians:

No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems– of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
