**Nor, of course, must they ever be allowed to raise Aristotle’s question: whether “democratic behaviour” means the behaviour that democracies like or the behaviour that will preserve the democracy. For if they did, it could hardly fail to occur to them that these need not be the same.
We, in Hell, would welcome the disappearance of Democracy…[but] it often works to our advantage…what we must realize is that “democracy” in the diabolical sense (I’m as good as you, Being Like Folks, Togetherness) is the finest instrument we could possibly have for extirpating political Democracies from the face of the earth.
A split-rail fence surrounds my piece of hillside. Squirrels use it to travel from one side of the yard to the other. Rarely does a tree rodent venture to cross the middle of the yard unless searching for treasure thought buried in a flowerbed. When the treasure hunt fails, it’s back on the fence. Some travel the top rail, some the bottom and some clog traffic by sitting on the fence post barking because another squirrel found the treasure first. They have the gift of ignorance, focused only on getting the treasure, oblivious to danger even when it confronts them directly.
History is recording that

representatives and your media allies:
Here’s what’s not important.
Legalized pot. Who gets to be a
judge. Steroids in professional
sports. Who becomes the UN ambassador.
The UN. The price of gas. Amnesty International. Will Hillary run? Michael Jackson. Which
Here’s what is important:
American Soldiers are dying fighting Islamo-killers, not "freedom fighters", not "insurgents" - just plain unmerciful, brutal beheading killers. Killers brainwashed by people you call “clerics” and sent out to blow themselves and innocent civilians to bits. Killers that would - and at the rate you’re going might - be blowing up your children if not for the work Soldiers do. Destroying the Islamo-killers is what is important not demanding that we show reverence for their twisted culture and their instruction manual. The Geneva Conventions apply to the uniformed combatant armed forces of a country. Period. The killers are alive, bathed, fed and living better than the average American field soldier that you – or do you - represent. We haven’t beheaded even one. How can you sleep at night when you show more concern for a pack of murderers than you do for the soldiers that protect you from them?
Our enemy has two
goals. 1. Kill all of the Jews and anyone else who
won’t convert to Islam. 2. Rule the world. Please write those goals on a large billboard
and post it where the world – and you – can read it every single day. Write it on a card and put it in your
pocket. Pull that card from your pocket
and read it aloud whenever you step in front of a television camera. Then,
There are 535 of you “people’s representatives” collecting large paychecks comprised of my taxes. Represent me not a political group, not a mythic left or right side of the political aisle, not a phony poll and certainly not those who would comfort the enemies of my country, who, by the way are also your enemies. Each morning, while in your comfortable and secure home or in your lobbyist paid for hotel room. Pull the card out and read it. While looking yourself in the eyes, ask yourself what you intend to do about it today.
