QUOTATIONS (THE LEVER) Thomas Paine 1737-1809 “The rights of Man” 1792,

Quote: What Archimedes said of the mechanical powers, may be applied to Reason and Liberty: “Had we” said he, “a place to stand upon, we might raise the world.”  The revolution of America presented in politics what was only theory in mechanics. End quote.
Unenlightened people blame government, but Mr. Paine’s observation is as true today as ever, possibly more so.  Our electorate is our lever, and our elected officials our fulcrum, were we, as a people, able to apply our pressure simultaneously, from a position of solidarity and with a common goal and purpose, there is no force on earth that could stand against us.  SC
