A great play on words. It also has an element of Truth which magnifys the impact of the statement.

Davy Crockett was a great and wise man. He is someone to whom we should all look for inspiration.

Like the Constitution it is as true today as it was back then

It is an odd quote. But Davy Crockett was a wise man that I respect! =)

Great quote. And there is an excellent biographical story of Crocket and his views on welfare which can be found by seaching his name and welfare. He was a wise and Honest man, a rarity in government today.
