The End

If we will listen to the judgment of those who should best know the nature of popular government, we shall find no reason for good men to desire or choose it. Xenophon, that brave scholar and soldier, disallowed the Athenian commonweal for that they followed that form of government wherein the wicked are always in greatest credit, and virtuous men kept under. They expelled Aristides the Just; Themistocles died in banishment; Miltiades in prison; Phocion, the most virtuous and just man of his age, though he had been chosen forty-five times to be their general, yet he was put to death with all his friends, kindred, and servants, by the fury of the people, without sentence, accusation, or any cause at all.

- Sir Robert Filmer, Patriarcha.

Speaking of Obama, as you probably already know Steve Sailer has written an entertaining and informative book about Barack Hussein Obama called America’s Half-Blood Prince: Barack Obama’s "Story Of Race And Inheritance, and for a limited time you can download it for free.
