The first implementation of mob thumbing

was in Rome in the colisuems where the mindless mob sat back and watched people get torn about by animals. Meanwhile, being fed bread, they let the Roman empire take over everything.

Daily Paul has apparently become the agency of mindless gladiator contests and rule by the mob.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
