In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars."Anyone care to guess who said this?
"Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.

An Interesting Quote
I came across this quote in an Uncle John's Reader, published by Bathroom Reader's Institute and thought it was very interesting.

I'm guessing it wasn't George Bush
It was NOT Pauley Shore, although I can understand why you might think it was.
Pete, you are correct in that it was NOT George Bush. It wasn't even one of his minions.
Herman Goerring, if memory serves.
Clinton (either one), Obama?
