I've heard alot of stupid things lately, like not believeing that its possible to bench over 400 lbs, now this.
Who are you siding with again?
I said it was absurd to think that Tim Tebow could bench press 500 lbs. And in the same post acknowledged the world record for the bench press without the assistance of steroids was 711 lbs. So that shoots that right out of the sky.
And I side with people who are intelligent, as opposed to idiots. I've yet to see any good in my lifetime, that wasn't on the basis of religion or morality, come from the republican party. Their statutes are on the border of being outdated. Much like the Whigs and the Tories.
And as for Democracy.... It sucks, it's a horrible system. Especially the current system, which is actually a Democratic Republic (technically a constitutional federal presidential republic). However, the only two BETTER options out there would require, 1 that everyone believe in God, or 2 that everyone trust a single person. These two forms of Govt are called Theocracy (rule by God, not by the church) and Enlightened Monarchy (An enlightened Monarch with the ability to produce other Enlightened Monarchs who could take his/her place in death). Now seeing that neither of those Governmental systems are possible, Democracy is what we have left, as it has the advantage of checks and balances... sort of.
Democracy sucks.... but it's the best thing we've got.
Democracy is Really a logical fallacy in itself called popular fallacy. But some men have chosen to comment on it as if it weren't while proving it is.
"Democracy gives the beatification of mediocrity a certain appearance of objective and demonstrable truth. The mob man, functioning as citizen, gets a feeling that he is really important to the world - that he is genuinely running things. Out of his maudlin herding after rogues and mountebanks there comes to him a sense of vast and mysterious power—which is what makes archbishops, police sergeants, the grand goblins of the Ku Klux and other such magnificoes happy. And out of it there comes, too, a conviction that he is somehow wise, that his views are taken seriously by his betters - which is what makes United States Senators, fortune tellers and Young Intellectuals happy. Finally, there comes out of it a glowing consciousness of a high duty triumphantly done which is what makes hangmen and husbands happy." -H. L. Menken
