Quote — Alexander Haig on Taxes

Alexander Haig

Mr Alexan­der Haig, a true “Patri­ot”?

Let them march all they want, as long as they con­tin­ue to pay their tax­es.”

US sec­re­tary of state who failed to avert the Falk­lands war, and the chief of staff who sus­tained Richard Nixon’s pres­i­den­cy. He nev­er faced an elec­torate in his life, but he ran the White House almost in secret dur­ing the 15 months up to Pres­i­dent Richard Nixon’s res­ig­na­tion in August 1974 – tak­ing over the impe­tus of a paral­ysed pres­i­den­cy in a man­ner that, how­ev­er nec­es­sary under the cir­cum­stances, was bare­ly con­sti­tu­tion­al.
