“It began with begging.
In the beginning it was all Gods icebox
and everyone ate raw fish or animals
and there was no fire at night to dance to,
no fire at day to cook by.”

“What I am anxious to do is to get the best bill possible with the least amount of friction.... I wish to avoid [splitting our party]. I shall do all in my power to retain the corporation tax as it is now and also force a reduction of the [tariff] schedules. It is only when all other efforts fail that Ill resort to headlines and force the people into this fight.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
