Wise words from Uncle Joe

Uncle Joe

"Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything." ---- Joseph Stalin

You've got to admit that this mass murdering monster had a pretty keen wit and an extremely penetrating understanding of the fundamental truth that underlies modern democracy.

A couple companion quotes from your boy, H.L. Mencken:

As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

A good politician under democracy is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.

A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.
