Will Rogers’ quotes about money and the USA

‘The difference between our rich and poor grows greater every year. Our distribution of wealth is getting more uneven all the time. A man can make a million and he is on every page in the morning. But it never tells you who gave up that million he got. You can’t get money without taking it from somebody.’

Here are some other Will Rogers quotes about money….

-A fool and his money are soon elected.

-Ten men in the country could buy the world and ten million can’t buy enough to eat.

-This country is bigger than Wall Street. If they don’t believe it, show ’em the map. (Somebody should mention this quote at the next Obama vs Romney debate …perhaps?)

-The difference between a bandit and a patriot is a good press agent.

-No man can be condemned for owning a dog. As long as he’s got a dog he’s got a friend and the poorer he gets the better friend he has.

-Give it (money) to the people at the bottom and the people at the top will have it before night, anyhow. But at least it will have passed through the poor fellow’s hand’s. (Rogers believed in a trickle up economy and not a Ronald Reaganesque/ Kafkaesque, never ‘trickle down’ nightmare like the superrich have gotten us fallen into.)
