Perhaps we should determine what consistency and foolish consistency is with these funny little Bromides.

Or we could but ourselves on the line and really define how and when we think Democracy or other forms of government could work.

And why wasn't Mellville, O'Rourke and others referring to Direct Democracy? Did they whisper such in your ear?

Especially the "older" writers like Mellville (sp), Menken, Alexis De Tocqueville were indeed warning about direct democracy, and perhaps too much democracy.

When Andy Jackson was elected many of the surviving "founders" blathered on about too many people voting, and the wrong sort voting, lol.
