Just A Few Thoughts From Almost 200 Years Ago
Some things never change

I thought you might enjoy (if not find thought provoking) from Alexis de Tocqueville, author of Democracy in America. ~ Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

~ Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.

~ Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith.

~ The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.

~ There is hardly a political question in the United States which does not sooner or later turn into a judicial one.

~ America is great because America is good. If America ever ceases to be good it will cease to be great.

I hope Alex is sitting on a cloud going "I told ya so."
