Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: VOTER & more

My Word of the Day

VOTER (VO’TER) n.s.[from vote.]One who has the right of giving his voice or suffrage.

Elections growing chargeable, the voters, that is, the bulk of the common people, have been universally seduced into bribery, perjury, drunkenness, malice, and slander. Swift.

He hates an action base;Can sometimes drop a voter’s claim, And give up party to his fame. Swift.
