Example Sentence (Quote)

"A Democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of Government. It can only exist until the voters 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, always to be followed by a Dictatorship and a Monarchy." - Democracy

Example Sentence (Quote)

"A democracy is peace-loving. It does not like to go to war. It is slow to rise to provocation. When it has once been provoked to the point where it must grasp the sword, it does not easily forgive its adversary for having produced this situation. The fact of the provocation then becomes itself the issue. Democracy fights in anger it fights for the very reason that it was forced to go to war. It fights to punish the power that was rash enough and hostile enough to provoke it to teach that power a lesson it will not forget, to prevent the thing from happening again. Such a war must be carried to the bitter end." - Democracy

Example Sentence (Quote)

"A democracy unsatisfied [by support of the people] cannot long survive. We live in probably the most turbulent and tormented times in the history of this nation. Criticize... disagree, yes, but also we have as leaders an obligation to be fair and keep in perspective what we are and what we hope to be." - Democracy

Example Sentence (Quote)

"A fanatical belief in democracy makes democratic institutions impossible." - Democracy
