"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest we become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."
(scroll down after you guess)
Cicero, 55 B.C.
What have we learned in 2,066 years?
And we all know what happened to the Roman Empire...... are we arrogant enough to think it won't happen to this Empire?
