As The Political Debates Continue, A Quote To Consider

Democracy then and now….

All of the current political upheaval has accomplished an important milestone…more people are paying attention to Washington and participating in the future of this country than has occurred for many years.

This quote from John Buchan (Lord Tweedsmuir) shows how little has changed in what democracy is and how easily it can be lost:

John Buchan

 

“The democratic testament derives from Hamilton as well as from Jefferson.  It has two main characteristics.  The first is that the ordinary man believes in himself and in his ability, along with his fellows, to govern his country.  It is when a people loses its self-confidence that is surrenders its soul to a dictator or an oligarchy…The second is the belief, which is fundamental also in Christianity, of the worth of every human soul - the worth, not the equality.”

Great quote, Lisa... I'm more than a little ready for this election cycle to be over.

Lisa yes many more people appear to be paying attention than I've ever seen. It will be interesting to see what 'next' the media makes a big deal out  of (not really)! I am ready for this to be over - way over.

Hi Lisa  - really important words from Lord Tweedsmuir.  Or as  one of the constitution founders, Benjamin Franklin said, "A republic, if you can keep it"

There will be far people involved in in the election process this year. One of the sad thing is most people won't talk about who their going to vote for.

Good luck and success.

Lisa John Buchan's quote may very well apply this year, and we will know in a little more than a month.

Lisa Von Domek ~ hi Lisa, I think many of us, who are political junkies like me, can't wait for this election to be over.
