Quotes for the Election Day.

No matter who wins, the government is elected, every time.

-Douglas French 

Those of us paying attention are left to merely sigh and roll our eyes, reminded of H.L. Mencken’s line, “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

Meanwhile, democracy continues on unquestioned. The politicians may be crooked, the taxes ruinous, the bureaucracy unwieldy, and the regulations outrageous, but the source of these outcomes is never questioned. The hope of democracy depends on the idea that all we need is the right people in power.
