Always thought the Founders were pretty smart guys, do remember Franklin's words as he exited the convention...

"Mr Franklin, what have you given us?"

"A REPUBLIC, IF you can keep it!"

CA and many other places show us the down side of democracy, which is, numbers, not ideas rule.

Never forget that any and all of us can lose the legal exercise of our rights if enough people vote for that, directly or indirectly.

ANY of our rights...and possibly all of them, over time. As long as there are people seeking to lead, and not just to serve, we are always at risk.
