A proposito delle primarie repubblicane per la sfida a Obama

(riceviamo e pubblichiamo)

"Thinking" is the one faculty that helps a Man his own destiny; it helps him avoid being blindly driven by either his passions or the ideological rhetoric of others.

As we listen to political debates in this election year, here's some food for thought that comes to us from ancient wisdom. In his famed book entitled "Democracy in America", French historian and political scientist Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in 1831:

“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money”.

How true these words ring one hundred and seventy-one years later!

Happy New Year!
