Treason doth never prosper

The patriarch of our family who lived in the 1600s was a knight, a poet, and high sheriff of Somerset County, and he coined a statement which has come down through the years when he said, "treason doth never prosper, what's the reason? For if it prospers none dare call it treason." This gem of wisdom is just as true today as it was in the 1600s. Stop and think of its importance according to today's political situation and think how it applies to our future, "treason doth never prosper, what's the reason? For if it prospers none dare call it treason."
