How dare Pelosi quote the Founders and twist their message?!
I know....I swear she was getting ready to say...Life...Liberty and the pursuit of health insurance? LOL!
She started to say “created equal,” choked on it, and switched to something else.
Yes, that is a huge distortion. As the ancient Greeks learned too painfully, a democracy preoccupied only with satisfying the appetites of the many runs the risk of turning into a tyranny.
The Founding Fathers understood that lesson of history. That is why they established a republic, not a democracy. But have we passed the point of no return? The fall elections will let us know.
