A little something from Brad Thor...

I'm reading the newest Brad Thor Book, Full Black, and came across a great bit. Tell me what you think:

   "In fact, one of the most apropos political observations I have ever read is that a democracy can exist only until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From the moment that realization takes hold, history shows that the majority of the people will always vote for the candidate promising the most goodies from the public treasury.
    History also shows us that once a democracy goes down this road, things never end well.  Each and every single time, the democracy collapses. It always happens. It collapses over loose fiscal policy, and democracy is always followed by dictatorship. And guess what that dicatator promises?
    [a return to order], but when order is restored, freedom is never seen by those citizens again."

I know this is a fictional book, but damn, doesn't this smack of our fine leaders today? Think about that one. Have a good 'un.


  1. Odd though, that he works for Big Sis.

  2. Very true...and we're living it.

  3. I was "blog hopping" and ran across your place. Hope ya don't mind if I tag along with ya for a bit! I can't help but notice that we read many of the same blogs. Anyway.... I just wanted to say hello.

  4. I forgot to tell you that I LOVE the name of your blog.... Goes good with Bacon and Eggs! LOL

  5. Matt-you're right. He does do some analytical work for Uncle Sugar, but I think he is on our side of the debate.

    Stephen-it does feel a little eery, doesn't it Bubba?

    SciFiChick-feel free to come by anytime and yes, there aren't many things in the world that can't be fixed with some biscuits and gravy. Glad to be of service.

  6. Understanding Brad Thor writes fiction novels it is still astounding the remarks he makes regarding our government today in the United States. It is frightening how correct he is.
