History keeps repeating itself because we’re too stupid to learn from the past (hat tip to Elmo at They gave us a republic…):

Harry S Truman: …If the congressional elements that made the Taft Hartley law are allowed to remain in power and if these elements are further encouraged by the election of a Republican president you men of labor can expect to be hit by steady barrage of body blows. And if you stay at home as you did in nineteen forty-six and keep these reactionaries in power you’ll deserve every blow you get…

Uh, yep.
