Something To Think About


“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

Elmer T Peterson

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
 

Art Spander


On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does.
 

Will Rogers (1879 - 1935)
 Note: This was said of the United States, but now applies to our own city council.
