“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the people discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy--to be followed by a dictatorship.”
― Alexander Fraser Tytler Woodhouselee
What do you think, amirite?

@ever heard of corporate welfare? conservatives never want anything done about it.

Actually, from what I've seen, corporate welfare is an issue grassroots conservatives and liberals tend to agree on, neither group likes it. But when it comes to the people they elect, neither side seems interested in doing anything to stop it.

This post is about a quote from a 18th century Scottish professor, it has nothing to do with Fox. The thumbnail just happened to be the most relevant image I could find.

Fox is as Progressive as the rest of the media outlets. Only the Fox opinion shows are conservatively - based. Thank God.

You're right, it isn't, the Fox image was just the most relevant one I could find.
