The Political Convention
Political Convention

“Democracy is a poor system of government at best; the only thing that can honestly be said in it is favor is that it is about eight times as good as any other method the human race has ever tried. Democracy’s worst fault is that its leaders are likely to reflect the faults and virtues of their constituents.” – Jubal Harshaw (Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land)

Celebrating the relatives that have served in politics!
