POLITICIANS, DEMAGOGUES,
AND OTHER CHARLATANS

"History has tried hard to teach us that we can't have good government under politicians.
Now, to go and stick one at the very head of the government couldn't be wise."

Mark Twain
New York Herald, August 26, 1876

No man-made system of government has ever been conceived nor will one ever be, that is perfect. The reason is that MAN is the weak link in anything he creates. He is the villian and the victim of the same. However, the one system of government, written by man, that has come closest to being near perfection is defined by the United States Constitution, a system that uses some democratic principles to operate within a REPUBLIC. This near perfect system is about to disappear forever because the people of the world's most powerful nation are ignorant of its history and lulled into a state of apathy. Their governments for the most part are made up of socialist cowards and demagogues (there are few brave and honorable exceptions).
