Want to get your favorite quote added to President Infinity?

Hi everyone,

I am adding quotes to the Start Screen in President Infinity, and this is your chance to get your favorite political quote into the game.

These quotes will be relatively short (not a paragraph), about politics, and at least to some extent relevant to the U.S.

Here’s an example,

“A republic, if you can keep it.” – Benjamin Franklin

Quote ideas welcome! I’ll look at any suggestions and might add them to the game.
