How to use politic in a sentence?

  1. Marcus Tullius Cicero:

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

  2. Jennifer Granholm:

    President Trump is no longer a mere possibility as President Trump was in 2016 ; President Trump is a poisonous cancer that we urgently must remove from our body politic, and second, I think the vote was more for Joe Biden than against Bernie Sanders.

  3. William Punshon:

    Cowardice asks Is it safe Expediency asks Is it politic But Conscience asks Is it right

  4. William Barr:

    Just like a physical body, the body politic must have an immune system that resists anti-Semitism and other forms of racial hatred.

  5. June Jordan:

    If any of us hopes to survive, s/he must meet the extremity of the American female condition with immediate and political response. The thoroughly destructive and indefensible subjugation of the majority of Americans cannot continue except at the peril of the entire body politic.
