Benjamin Franklin once said the death of the "democracy" is when the citizen started voting themselves money.
Think we are long past that.
Aye, We're DOOMED, I tell ya!
That might never have been possible, or it would have at least taken a lot longer to accomplish the destruction, if the legislative balance of power
between the states and the people had not been destroyed by constitutional amendment, and the STATES were still selecting senators instead of popular
That was the beginning of democracy and the end of freedom in America.
Yes, I said that just like I meant to. The beginning of democracy marks the END of freedom. It's just another form of self-destructive collectivism.
I'm not any bigger a fan of democracy than I am communism or any of the other "isms".
I TOLD you I was way to the right of Atilla the Hun! I believe in Freedom... Liberty... Individuality... to HELL with collectives!
No earthly reason the people should have representatives in BOTH houses of the national legislature and the state have NONE. That's not the way it was
meant to be. Balance was destroyed, and we got what we have now - an accelerating destruction.
We, the People, will EAT OUR YOUNG if given half a chance, as recent history proves.
