The Founding Fathers of America
With todays republic in great peril, the quotes from these great intellectual men ring prophetically true!

This thread is one to find quotes from them warning of the exact corrupt government we have in place today.

I wonder when great thinkers like these will again come together in a future age to try the experiment again!

Good luck to us all, we are going to need it soon I fear.


Here is my quote I am contributing...

“I do not say that democracy has been more pernicious on the whole, and in the long run, than monarchy or aristocracy. Democracy has never been and never can be so durable as aristocracy or monarchy; but while it lasts, it is more bloody than either. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy. It is not true, in fact, and nowhere appears in history. Those passions are the same in all men, under all forms of simple government, and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty.” – John Adams

You were one-stared because you obviously don't understand Adams is not talking about the American Constitutional Republic - but "Democracy" - Mob rule and The Tyranny of Majority - of the kind that occurred after the French Revolution and embraced by much of the politcal left.


Democracy : Two Wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch

Republic : a Democracy where two hundred wolves and one hundred lambs elect two wolves and one lamb ans their representatives to vote on what to have for lunch

Constitutional Republic : A republic with a Constitution guaranteeing that lamb is not on the lunch menu . Eventually, the supreme court rules - five wolves to four lambs - that mutton is not the same as lamb.
