Sample Quotes on Civics:

It’s so deeply disturbing to me that half of the eligible voters don’t vote in this country. We talk about how divided the country is. The truth is, we don’t even know. We just know what the half that voted thought. I’m a big fan of the Australian approach—there it’s required by law that you vote.

—Christie Hefner

The biggest need in politics and government today is for people of integrity and courage, who will do what they believe is right and not worry about the political consequences to themselves.

--Neva Beck Bosone

It’s not the hand that signs the laws that holds the destiny of America. It’s the hand that casts the ballot.

My kind of loyalty was loyalty to one’s country, not to its institutions or its officeholders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death.

--Mark Twain

People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote—a very different thing.

--Walter H. Judd

There is no liberal America, no conservative America, no black America, no white America, no Latino America, no Asian America, only ‘the United States of America.’

—Barack Obama

The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.

--Plato

‘Our country right or wrong.’ When right to be kept right. When wrong to be put right.

--Carl Schurz

Today the world is the victim of propaganda because people are not intellectually competent. More than anything the United States needs effective citizens competent to do their own thinking.

--William Mather Lewis

The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.

--John F. Kennedy

Those of us who shout the loudest about Americanism in making character assassinations are all too frequently those who, by our own words and acts, ignore some of the basic principles of Americanism—

The right to criticize.

The right to hold unpopular beliefs.

The right to protest.

The right of independent thought.

--Margaret Chase Smith

The biggest argument against Democracy is a five-minute conversation with the

average voter.

--Winston Churchill

The very essence of a free government consists in considering offices as public trusts, bestowed for the good of the country, and not for the benefit of an individual or a party.

--John C. Calhoun

There is no group in America that can withstand the force of an aroused public opinion.

--Franklin D. Roosevelt

The idea that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast cereal—that you can gather votes like box tops—is, I think, the ultimate indignity to the democratic process.

--Adlai Stevenson
