Quote of the day...Relevant to today

Delusions about democracy are subverting peace and freedom. The American system of government is collapsing thanks to ignorant citizens, lying politicians, and a government leashed neither by law nor Constitution. While presidents and pundits harp on democracy’s inevitable spread around the world, it is perishing at home. - James Bovard, author of Attention Deficit Democracy

    1. It isn't just conservatives that have tried to spread democracy, Jersey. From Woodrow Wilson and TR to Truman and LBJ, the left has gotten us into a fair amount of quagmires as well.

  2. Voting democracy away happens a lot, such as the instances in Latin American countries where the people voted for a single-party dictatorship socialist over a democratic leader.

  3. Certainly can't disagree with either assertion.
