The idea of unalienable rights and the use of limited government to protect those rights, has a proven track record of success.
The Greek democracy ended horrifically, as did the Roman Empire as will the American Empire. Where exactly is the proven track-record of success? The only track-record I see is one in which a limited government grows unchecked by the people until such time that the government eventually enslaves the people one-way or another. If you call that success, then I believe you are on the wrong website; you might feel more at home on the Red State, HuffPo, or someother Statist sites.
