Timely thought for the day...

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch... Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote."

Benjamin Franklin


  1. Love it, Bill. As I've matured (meaning, as a cheese, my rind has toughened, I've mellowed a bit, and I smell much more interesting than I once did) I've come to understand a bit more about what "democracy" is and what the United States stands for. I think our nation needs to be a little better educated as to what kind of society we are supposed to be. I'm sure many would be surprised at what the founding fathers thought of Democracy.

  2. Thanks Dave,

    I firmly believe that less power is coming from the people as laws and rules are changed to circumvent the people's will.
