Apparently John Adams was right?!

It has been said in current times that democracy within a nation doesn’t last much longer than 200 years.  Our country is over that marker and is already showing signs of ‘problems’.  If you look at what we’re currently experiencing in this country is should be frightening to anyone who cares.

A quote from John Adams pretty much spells this idea out in a letter he wrote over 200 years ago!

“Democracy never lasts long.  It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.  There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

It would appear we’re at least hemorrhaging rapidly.
