“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.” — Alexander Tyler, Scottish Historian, around 1787

Hypocritical politicians doing sleazy things to further their own selfish goals?! SAY IT ISN'T SO!!!
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

oh..I forgot about this thread..I feel if the Republicans embraced immigration reform more they would have MANY Catholic Latinos on their side next time around. Demographics are changing. There are Catholic Latino and Fundimental Christian African American votesto be won. I will give Bush this. He was smart with his whole "rainbow coalition" idea.
