Quote of the day - Governed

‎"The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite."

-- Thomas Jefferson

Ruled by a small elite, of course.

Anything else is just a temporary aberration.

Hell, the "free country" the United States of America" is a temporary aberration when looked at in relation to human history.

Our founders did NOT want to be ruled, and they setup a government, constitution and country to make it so.

Today's Americans? (many of them) If the founders were alive they would see those Americans as little more than European loving boot-lickers.
