Ok I was thinking the other day about how we as Americans, suck at making decisions. We hated bush, then we choose Obama and we hate him too. So, my fellow Americans, if you were the President, how would you do things?

The federal government is a cartel agreement among states to provide sh*tty service and raise prices. Dissolve the union, and competition among states will prove incredibly beneficial.

inb4 naive policy advocates. "oooh ooh end the drug war. Cut military spending. Serial killers should stop killing!"

Democracy is a monarchy of the majority. Whether they can control their representatives is irrelevant.

You understand the contradiction in your sentence? You might say that it has the net result of a tyranny of the majority, but monarch is singular, majority is plural.

Yes I know what the cosmetic difference between democracy and monarchy is, but you still understood my sentence, which was my goal.
