Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what is for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed sheep with the same vote.

“Voting is the illusion of influence in exchange for the loss of freedom.” Frank Karsten and Karel Beckman

“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false from for the urge to rule.”  H.L. Mencken

“The more one considers the matter, the clearer it becomes that redistribution is in effect far less a redistribution of free income from the richer to the poorer, than it is a redistribution of power from the individual to the state.” Bertrand de Jouvenal

“The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.” Winston Churchill

Democracy is supposed to be responsive to what the people want. I am often quite surprised to wake up and read the paper and discover what I wanted.  I had no idea.
