Happy 300th Birthday Ben, you Capricorn YOU!

This crazy Birthday Boy knucklehead of a founding father was not only a candlemaker, creator of the bifocal and that wacky kite thing with the key, he was a great inventor of famous quotes, quotes could only be made by him. Plus, who wouldn't love the fact that he fancied the opium dens in Paris whilst he bantered about with the French to win their support for independence from those Brits with the cute accents. Anywho, I've gathered a few from this site "Greatest Benjamin Franklin Quotes"

All of them, I feel, equally pertinent to Yaye's most recent post not in any particular order...

  1. Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
  2. When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.
  3. They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty.
Happy B-day Ben o'l boy!
