    I find it so deliciously ironic that we have always been about the "spread of democracy" for the world as if it was the United State's gift for everyone. What is often the first thing said about Israel? "Well, it's the area's only democracy!"

    Our Republic basically has a dysfunctional government and has had one for quite a while. Voices of sanity are drowned out by a screaming mob brandishing pitchforks and torches.

    I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center. Kurt Vonnegut
