Prophetic Words

For any group who sometimes receives more than they give...

"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority will always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy.”
- Alexander Tyler, a history teacher from the University of Edinburgh in 1887
