Cicero“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled,

public debt should be reduced,

the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall.

People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.”


Cicero , 55 BC
