Cicero, Well Spoken

“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 Rome becomes bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” ~ Cicero , 55 BC

It’s hard to believe that the words spoken in 55 B.C. about the Roman Empire could be applied to the United States today. But it has been stated that history will repeat itself, unless we learn from it.
