I Have Finally Thought Of The Words

I once describe our Apathetic citizenry(majority) as "You can still vote and be apathetic". But I could not back it up at the time.

I often bring up our citizenry because I believe it's our biggest threat. Not Obama for example.

As the French Philosopher, who our founders looked up to, Charles de Montesquieu said:

"The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy"


Our problem is the apathy(lack of feeling) that so many Americans now will vote to give up their freedoms and liberties when it comes to collectivism and socialism

This goes for the local level all the way to the Federal level.

It's more than that also. The 'doers' are also the problem. Take my town voting for a school district tax levy(property tax increase).,


If you're informed we're like 20 something in the world in education. In other words getting our butt kicked. But people willing to give themselves a property tax increase just because of the emotional aspect of education. Only to throw more money at the broken education system which will NEVER be solved.

Also, there's no American principle. Americans don't give property tax increases when they don't have to. Instead of taking on the state where most of the short fall of revenue or problem is they simply expand the problem and like little 'serfs' vote them own selves a property tax increase.

The problem with the educational system isn't money, we spend more on education than anyone else. The problem is that idiocy in the educational system is self perpetuating.

Liberals took it over a long time ago from kindergarten to masters degrees.

Of course they do..

Start asking people you know "What kind of Government do we have"?

North of 90% won't know. Guess what? They can vote. Shocked Huh Roll Eyes
