We have a collection of 6 Government quotes from H L Mencken

"Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage." (ID 23025)

"I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time." (ID 23113)

"All government, of course, is against liberty." (ID 23152)

"Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under." (ID 23167)
