“Well, I have been & gone and done it! Positively voted the Republican ticket, straight, this a.m. at 7 o’clock; and swore my vote in at that…”
– Susan B. Anthony before she was sent to trail for her behavior and ultimately fined one-hundred dollars.
Idealism is fine, but as it approaches reality the cost becomes prohibitive
-William F. Buckley, Jr.
In general the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens to give it to the other.
Politicians never accuse you of “greed” for wanting to take other people’s money—only for wanting to keep your own money.
TWP: The bloggers were talking about the Web site that came up called TheRealChris.com, and they saw that as a negative tool. How did you view that?
Ken Ulman: That was talking about record. If folks on the other side are pointing those things out, then they need to look in the mirror.
“I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for,” Howard Dean
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood. Who errs, and comes short again and again (but)… who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.
Art McGreevy was Ken Ulman’s 2006 campaign manager for Howard County Executive. In this letter he was commenting on Ken Ulman’s 2002 primary campaign for Howard County Council.
“There is an old saying: “How you run is how you govern.” Ken Ulman is running a positive, well-organized campaign. He is working hard every day. It was these traits that led to his endorsement. [Teacher’s Union]
If how you run is a reflection of how you will govern, the community will be well served by Ken Ulman.”
