kakistocracy noun [kak-uh-stok-ruh-see]
A form of government in which the worst persons are in power.
I was unfamiliar with this word, but definitely familiar with the definition. To paraphrase the Supreme Court justice Potter Stewart in a 60's pornography case and referring to the definition of obscenity: "I may not know how to define it, but I know it when I see it."
Of course the worst people are always in power. Crooks! It takes a crook to promise the most free money to voters. However, it takes a crook to vote for that politician. Both sides are bribe takers. Its always been that way and always will since there is larceny in the hearts of people. So many are trying hard to get in everyones pocketbook with ballot box voting, robbery, divorce court, bribery, and frivilous lawsuits. That money is powerful and people can't control themselves!
The only defense we had for the voting system has been eliminated for 100 years beginning with world war 1. The gold standard. Before Roosevelt outlawed gold and stole the rest a person could walk into a bank and plop down their paper money and demand gold which was a way to stop the counterfeiting by bankers and politicians that financed the welfare state and wars. Now its all digital money behind the scenes. Of course people like the welfare state and wars and so it goes on until the dollar starts to crash from hyperinflation. Our problems won't be solved with votes.
By the way mikeintexas since you hate trump you never said which war republican your supporting that you think can do better than mccain and romney in the general election.
Now, someone start a thread to see who here can most closely predict the exact date we will be drawing for our first billion dollar pot!
