Mark Twain once said, “Figures don’t lie, but liars do figures.” I am sorry, folks, but after my four score and three years, I no longer respect politicians. At the beginning of my professional career, I not only respected politicians, I gave money to them.
I have worked with many politicians. I have sold products and services to many politicians. I have testified in front of Congress. And before the Vietnam War, I respected politicians.
