Democracy is…

A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine. ~ Thomas Jefferson

All government, of course, is against liberty. ~ H. L. Mencken

An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry. ~Thomas Jefferson

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.
~H. L. Mencken
