Old farmer: Listen, years ago I rode with Juárez against Emperor Maximilian. I lost many chickens but I thought it was worth it to be free. When
Porfirio became President, I supported him – but he stole my chickens. Then came Huerta and he stole my chickens. Then it was Carranza’s term, and
he stole my chickens too. Now comes Pancho Villa to liberate me and the first thing he does is steal my chickens!...What makes one different from the
others? My chickens don’t know. All over the world revolutions come and go. Presidents rise and fall. They all steal your chickens. The only thing
to change is the name of the man who takes them.
From: Young Indiana Jones "Spring Break Adventure", summing up the history of Mexico from about 1860 to 1930.
But it's so true. The only thing a government does is take from its people, and try to keep everything so regulated so you can't have any real
freedom. It doesn't matter if it's a Democracy, Republic, or tyranny of some sort, they all take whatever they can from you.
