Interesting historical facts -

During the French Revolution approximately 60% of the captured aristocrats were decapitated by guillotine.

For the Ancien Régime judiciary, the number jumps to about 80% executed.

Unrelated to the topic at hand . . .

No idea how it popped into my head.

Sorry.

Thankfully, unlike Bourbon France, we still are blessed with our peerless US Constitution and all we have to do here is elect a strong social conservative as president plus continue to improve the makeup of Congress. If we can’t use our freedom to elect a higher morality to high office, our nation is sunk anyway.
