Comment of the Week
Commenter Eduardo the Magnificent wins Comment of the Week with a short but sweet comment on electoral college trends all but making it impossible for Trump to win in the electoral college next month. In response to Changing Demographics Could Mean a Hillary Win and Eventual Democrat Dictatorship, he wrote:
Like Tocqueville said, once people figure out they can vote themselves the treasury, it’s all over. There’s no going back.
For those who don’t know, Tocqueville wrote Democracy in America and was an ardent supporter of liberty. Tocqueville saw democracy as an equation that balanced liberty with well-being of the community. Both ideals have since been discarded in favor of what’s best for corporations and the elite since moneyed powers have come to dominate democracy as Spengler predicted would happen.
Indeed, there is no going back once the tax takers have found a way to consistently rob the taxpayers. The only way that ends is through bloodshed.
