From the days of the Founding Fathers to the present day, politics has always played a central role in our everyday lives.
The successes and failures of the President of the United States, long campaigns for new candidates, and the outcome of local elections are everywhere. In election years, we see campaigning on our phones, in our newsfeeds, and whenever we turn on the news.
Between federal, state, and local elections, the endless campaigning makes it feel like there’s always a race between Democrat and Republican somewhere.
Whoever your ideal candidate is, we’ve collected the very best quotes about politics, politicians, elections, and voting.
We’ve found that a good sense of humor is necessary when dealing with the endless rounds of debates, campaign speeches, and exit polls, so you’ll find funny political quotes here too!
Quotes about Politics
Quotes About Politicians
It takes a special kind of person to want to be a politician. Sometimes that’s a good thing, sometimes it isn’t!
Whether people are drawn into politics by the desire to serve other people and make their lives better, or because they want to be powerful and well-known, politicians do work extremely hard.
Whatever drives them, and whatever their faults may be, these are some great politician quotes.
Quotes About Votes and Voting
The buzz of an election day is like no other.
Many of us can remember voting in our first election, and the fact that people queue for hours to cast their ballot is testament to the fact that people see voting as a civic duty and a privilege.
Historically, men and women have fought tirelessly to ensure that the people in their communities had equal rights and universal suffrage.
Neglecting your right to vote not only dishonors the memory of their efforts, but means you can’t complain if you don’t get the outcome you were hoping for! Hopefully these quotes about voting will inspire you to get to the polls before they close this year.
Funny Political Quotes
Authors, comedians, talk show hosts, and even politicians themselves have always managed to find the funny side of politics.
Though the reality of an election outcome can be very serious and means a lot to many people, the length of time we are exposed to political campaigns, rallies, and speeches means that we really need to be able to laugh about it too.
These quotes are all about finding the lighter side of political life!
