Marcus Tullius Cicero

Marcus Tullius Cicero

2000 year old Cicero quote reads like Glenn Beck: 

“The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt, the mobs should be forced to work and not depend on government for subsistence.”

Marcus Tullus Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
