"Made of Win"

You know, sometimes something just expresses a sentiment without flaw. Courtesy of Snowflakes In Hell. Yeah, that's my pie, beotch. Back off.

Which, of course, leads plainly to why that sort of horseshit has any legs at all. Because...

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. ".

Perhaps someday we'll figure it out and just stop it. I don't pretend to have an alternative, no. I just know what is right - as we all do, in our hearts. Just that the alternative is so frightening that we dare not look it in the face. But surely with the current Horsemen of the Apocalypse to choose from we can see the truth of it...
