Dallas Morning News publishes third

This qualifies me for a Lights of Liberty award (I've already nominated myself):
It frightens those of us who know what democracy means that President Bush said that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's death will make the world safe for it.

Democracy – in which the government does exactly what more than 50 percent of the electorate tells it to do – has been a failure since democratic Athens lost the Peloponnesian War to tyrannical Sparta in 404 BC.

The United States is, and always has been, a republic, in which the people elect trusted representatives to run the government. Sadly, only the Libertarian Party seems to recognize this.
