"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship."
“We will raise the debt limit. We always have. We will do it again.”
"Those of you who read Tolkien will recognize the current American scenario. The Nazgul are abroad - the ringwraiths - the Black Riders. It is time to prepare."
