If you ask me, this quote is behind the times because who loses and who doesn't is already known as are the goods to be stolen. Who's the new president going to be in 2012? Just by seeing who the most popular candidate is. The party he/her belongs to doesn't matter as both parties are 2 sides of the same coin, such coin belonging to the elite bankers who pull the strings behind the curtains.

    Only because the voters think they can hire someone else to point guns at those whose property they covet. When the people vote for money, then they have already sold their honor and their country. And that's exactly the type of citizen the government wants.
