  •  Reminds me of a story (0+ / 0-)

    I heard about a liberal politician who was told the same thing you wrote above by his more conservative political opponent.  He listened to the harangue and said "I accept your nomination," and was promoted to leadership.  

    Unfortunately, the moneyed interests didn't like what he did and with a great empire's help his government was overthrown and replaced with a dictatorship.  

    His name was Mohammed Mossadegh, and he shows what happens when the mask of the Greatest Democracy slips.


    You may think that. I couldn't possibly comment.-- Francis Urqhart
