Tim Scott

You ask people what their ethnicity is, and a lot of Scots-Irish people either don't know or if they know it they just don't acknowledge it. It's not something they really identify with. They're just plain old Americans, plain vanilla. I don't think they are a self-conscious voting bloc.

In most places in the country, voting is looked upon as a right and a duty, but in Chicago it's a sport.

Remember, it is not about voting for the perfect candidate - there is no such thing. Presidents are human.

Every vote should carry a serial number, so that responsibility for harmful or careless use of the vote can be traced. Concealed voting should be outlawed.

Voting has proliferated in the United States, and it has reached a point where there is now almost one vote available per citizen over the age of eighteen.

P. J. O'Rourke

Of course, no one wants to ban the vote. Voting should remain available for sporting and recreational purposes. But certain types of votes clearly should be curtailed - 'assault votes,' for example, in which the only purpose of the vote is to harm others.

P. J. O'Rourke

If you look at their voting habits and their eating habits, you realize people are stupid.

Harry S Truman

Indeed, you won the elections, but I won the count.

In politics women type the letters, lick the stamps, distribute the pamphlets and get out the vote. Men get elected.
