“Politicians ensure reelection by giving away things that don’t belong to them….  But political redemption is based mostly on amnesia and debt….  And heavy borrowing allows them to push the cost onto people with no memories at all – many of whom aren’t even born yet.  By the time the bills come payable, most people have forgotten who contracted them or what they were for.” -Bill Bonner
