A Bit of Wisdom on Political Parties from George Washington

"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men (and women) will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion." ~ George Washington

              “Socialism” isn’t part of Biden’s platform, no matter how many times Fox tells you that.

              And no one has done anything violent in the name of Joe Biden, that’s laughable. He’s condemned the violence many times.
              This violence is happening in Trump’s America, and he is responsible. The buck stops with the president, and he’s just not up for the job.

Read it carefully, he mentions engines, this was far before the engine had been invented, it would have been interesting to know what he was referring too! It was known that Mr. Washington had wooden teeth, and we complain about the things we don’t like?

    Engine is from the Latin ingenium, which referred to one’s ability to create things, one’s native genius; it comes from a root meaning ‘create; beget’ from which we get words like genetic, and is also the source of ingenious and ingenuity (engineer derives from a related word).

    Its first meaning in English, from about the fourteenth century, was very much this one of mother wit or genius, a skill in devising things. It could also, by obvious extension, refer to the result of such ingenuity, a contrivance or device, particularly any mechanical apparatus. The term was very general; a sixteenth-century text directs that a person should be “put in the stocks or other such engine”; pulleys and their like were also engines (as in Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels of 1727: “With ropes and engines, I made a shift to turn it”).

    The British pub served its drink by means of beer engines, hand pumps which drew the brew up from casks in the cellar; blazes were extinguished with the help of fire engines, originally hand-operated pumps. In the 1670s one John Worlidge invented a machine for pulping apples in cidermaking; he termed his device the Ingenio, an obvious reference to the Latin original.

    Engine was commonly applied also to weapons of war, such as the siege engine and to devices such as snares for catching game (hence gin trap, where gin is a short form of engine that also turned up in compounds such as horse gin for a horse-powered windlass).

      One can tell who didn't take language classes in high school. I wonder if Latin is even offered any more in today's world? A shame because it makes understanding all languages and vocab easier.

    You're thinking of a contemporary definition. As another poster already mentioned, early forms spoke to the ability to create and be a driving force.

    Like the previous poster replied , engines of one type or another, such as the catapult, and others were used over 2000 years ago. Google ancient engines. It is surprising.

    Why would these stupid Democrats want to elect an old Fu*k who doesn't know the difference between his wife and his sister? An old Fu*k that thinks he is running for the Senate? An old Fu*k that flip-flops on every issue just to save his ass from losing the election. An old Fu*k that follows President Trump in every state to lie to the American people that he can do better than our President. An old Fu*k that wants to defund law enforcement. An old Fu*k that supports abortion. An old Fu*k who posted bail for the violent protesters that were arrested and thrown in jail. God help America if this old Fu*k is elected President.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You mentioned masks. We have Julie Bard who’s from Gibsonia, Pennsylvania.

TRUMP: Yeah.

STEPHANOPOULOS: She’s right here. She has a question about that. You voted for Hillary Clinton last time I believe.

BARD: Yes I did. The wearing of masks has proven to lessen the spread of COVID. Why don’t you support a mandate for national mask wearing? And why don’t you wear a mask more often?

TRUMP: Well, I do wear them when I have to and when I’m in hospitals and other locations. But I will say this. They said at the Democrat convention they're going to do a national mandate. They never did it, because they’ve checked out and they didn’t do it.

And a good question is, you ask why Joe Biden -- they said we’re going to do a national mandate on masks.

STEPHANOPOULOS: He’s called on all governors to have them. There’s a state responsibility…

TRUMP: Well no, but he didn’t do it. I mean, he never did it. Now there is by the way, a lot of people don’t want to wear masks. There are a lot of people think that masks are not good. And there are a lot of people that as an example you have…

STEPHANOPOULOS: Who are those people?

TRUMP: I’ll tell you who those people are -- waiters.
