“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.” A.F. Tytler (circa 1790)
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
“…democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship…”
Can the United States of America, as we’ve known it throughout the prior two centuries be saved?
