Tuesday Points to Ponder Post

 Here's something to consider.....

“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.”
-Attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler   an 18th Century Scottish born, British lawyer and writer


I see a whole bunch of truth in this quote.
I also fear we are past our apex in this country and sliding quickly toward that monarchy.
