Are you Ashamed of your Government?

H. L Mencken
1880 -1956

H.L. Mencken once wrote that, "Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under."

A Liberal is ashamed because his government does too little.

A Conservative is ashamed because his government does too much.

The Libertarian finds that Mencken's proposition is simply axiomatic.

A Democrat today is ashamed today because of President Trump.

A Republican today is ashamed because of the relentless attacks by the media on President Trump.

An Isolationist is ashamed because his country intervenes too much in the affairs of other nations.

An Interventionist is ashamed because his government refuses to stand up for its principles or to assist other nations in their times of need.

I suppose that every decent man or woman really is ashamed of his or her government!
