Quando, na eleição, governos são mostrados como algo que resolve tudo, é hora de lembrar de Ronald Wilson Reagan

In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.

From time to time we’ve been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.”

In fact, every president since Lyndon B. Johnson has written a memoir, and every first lady since Lady Bird Johnson — except Pat Nixon — has penned her own story too. We pitted recent political couples against one another to let book buyers declare winners. Better get writing, Michelle.
