Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Why We Need LESS Democracy:

I have a minimum of three posts backed up for today.

That said, I had to push those posts aside for this one.

A The New Republic article suggests -- no, STATES -- that this nation needs to set aside the US Constitution.

Too Much of a Good Thing

Why we need less democracy.

In an 1814 letter to John Taylor, John Adams wrote that “there never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” That may read today like an overstatement, but it is certainly true that our democracy finds itself facing a deep challenge: During my recent stint in the Obama administration as director of the Office of Management and Budget, it was clear to me that the country’s political polarization was growing worse—harming Washington’s ability to do the basic, necessary work of governing. If you need confirmation of this, look no further than the recent debt-limit debacle, which clearly showed that we are becoming two nations governed by a single Congress—and that paralyzing gridlock is the result.

So what to do? To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.

So let's just institute a monarchy.

Let's just make Mr Obama a King.


Not out of the realm of possibilities for the Left.

King Obama.

All hail!

As Franklin said, "A Republic, if you can keep it..."

We didn't...

We became a democracy, and it's been downhill ever since..

Michelle Obama and her husband Barak, have set “race relations” BACK 125 years.
They have brought out all this subdued anger in most.

Yes, Abraham Lincoln should have sent all slaves back to their original countries.
But, he was asasinated by John Wilkes Booth
Look at the island of Haiti. The slave traders dropped off all the slaves they didn’t want or could not sell here, at this island in the Caribbean Sea.
It is still a sewer today, just like all of the cities on the West African coast.
So, please answer: Why is this?
Also, how do we get out of this "racial" mess the USA is in now???

“Democracy is five wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch."

Please also note the first comment; an astute perspective of the Builderberg group. (Guess who isn't a member).
