The founding fathers were always afraid of a popular vote, because they can always elect a demagogue. So "electors" were (originally) chosen by State Houses, whose members were elected by the people.

Well, they were right. Our version of the popular vote DID elect a demagogue.

Our so-called democracy elected a mule-headed donkey as our president …

The man is a fool, pure and simple, without enough brains to fill a thimble due to bone spurs in his skull pan which have displaced whatever brain he might once have had and turned it into a dense rock like substance …

And there are people who love him for it, since they get to identify themselves with someone who they think is above everybody else …

And it is a historical fact that it is democracies which elect dictators and tyrants …

So credit where credit is due …

And so ...

Said another way, looking back on history, this is not the first time a democracy has elected a fool to be a dictator or tyrant over them ...

The founding fathers would not recognize this FARCE we have for a federal government today …

This FARCE was not given to us by the founding fathers …

This FARCE was given to us by the Democrats and Republicans and the apathy of the so-called "American" people, which are simply people living here as opposed to somewhere else …

Most of them are consumers, not citizens …

All that makes them "citizens" is the fact they were born here …

That's it …

But true citizenship entails duty and personal responsibility and there is where the experiment at REPUBLICAN government failed, to be replaced by democracy, an unstable form of government as we are seeing today, as the country becomes more and more entrenched in its divisions ...

I won't miss Bolton.

A total nut case and a war hawk.

And today is the day we celebrate "Intelligence Failure Day" here in America, so happy Intelligence Failure Day, jeffmoskin!

And 9-11 is a day blessed and cherished by all the white collar criminals out there, because after 9-11, Bob Mueller pulled all the FBI agents OFF of investigating white collar crime, something the FBI was created to do, and instead, switched them over to counter-intelligence which in turn made Bob Mueller a HERO to the white collar criminals and gave them a clear field to commit their crimes with impunity …

And so ...

Most of the NYC agents were assigned to "getting Gotti" and were staking out his operation in Brooklyn.

And they did finally get him by renting out the 2nd floor place over his and putting in cameras and microphones.

But they sure missed 9/11.

The day white collar crime enforcement died in Albany, New York, where it was needed the most …

The day the white collar criminals slipped free from the fetters of the law …

And so ...
