The Failure of Unfettered Democracy

We in the United States are now witnessing the death of yet another form of government, our own.  The Founders created a Federal government with limited power, realizing that unfettered democracy would only result in tyranny and that any government that permitted the majority to vote themselves benefits at the expense of minority would eventually fail.  Thanks to activist courts that is the state in which the United States now finds itself.

The ongoing debt /deficit drama has clearly demonstrated one thing--that Congress has neither the will nor the desire to solve the country's problems.  Neither party is willing to reject the will of their extremists for to do so is to risk re-election.  There is a path back to prosperity but it will not be an easy trek....
