Democracy is being in a room

Democracy is being in a room full of strangers who will decide your fate. Its a mid-evil torcher chamber.

Peter should use some numbers in his argument

I think I saw an article that said taxing the rich 100% would only bring in about $60 billion. Yet our gov't spends $1 trillion more than it makes every year, so the math just isn't there to justify this argument that we should raise taxes on the rich.

Democracies were hated by the Founders.

A lady asked Dr. Benjamin Franklin: “Well Doctor what have we got, a republic or a monarchy.”
Franklin replied, “A republic . . . if you can keep it.”

What we have now is a miserable democracy soon-to-be a totalitarian dictatorship.

And Madison was quoted as having said

Democracy was the "most vile form of government"

If 10 men voted to rape a woman, would it be OK?

Per Molyneax: "If 10 men voted to rape a woman, would it be OK?" I thought that was a doozy of the description of democracy.

That's the fatal flaw with Democracy

The majority of people will vote themselves benefits from the public treasury if given the opportunity.

to attack schiff because he endorsed Romney?


There would probably be more

if he ever did actually endorse Romney

Schiff publicly stated he

Schiff publicly stated he voted for Gary Johnson. Did you really endorse Romney?

Don't think so

but he did say Romney was the lesser of two evils when compared to Obama, which speaking strictly economically, he was.



busy with their noses up schittleries phat-a$$ for her 2016 run.

no one noticed when rand announced he would be a candidate in 2016, hillary came out a few days later and announced as well....
since when do candidates like shillery announce a bid this early??

when a guy like rand announces first, thats when.
rands early announcement threw hillery for a loop.
she wasnt ready to announce and this will have MAJOR consequnces for her.
she has to much to do before then now everyone will be watching her every move more closely.
she doesnt want that and the cats out of the bag thanks to rand paul.
