Quote Of The Week

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

This can eventually lead to their first gun purchase and the rest become history.
