Why Is Will Rogers Still So Accurate?

Will Rogers is a great Renaissance Man from the black-and-white era. While I originally wanted to highlight his political quotes despite politics not being my area of expertise, many of his notable quotes seem timeless and make me wonder if, despite nearly a century passing with new gizmos and the Internet, many fundamentals of American society haven't changed. Despite politics being something I avoid commenting on a la the "avoid discussing" at dinner table suggestions, some quotes below are especially relevant for 2016's Hillary versus whomever:

"The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

"Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

"I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat."

"If you ever injected truth into politics you have no politics."

"Last year we said, 'Things can't go on like this,' and they didn't, they got worse."

"Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing, and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even."

"A fool and his money are soon elected."

"Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated."

"Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man; we never get to vote on what he is to do."

"Things in our country run in spite of government, not by aid of it."

"Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don't have for something they don't need."

So why is Will Rogers still so accurate? I think the structure of a dominant society is slow to change without some revolution (not that I advocate for that).
