Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely.

The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.

Yes...as long as it's not one of those college educations in the Universitys that are teaching lots of crap. I can't believe some of the people who are "professors" and some of the stuff they teach...makes me CRAZY! Ok..I'll calm down now and wish you a happy weekend!
