Reader comments about this quote:
I think so.  We tend to believe we 'deserve' better, when in fact we get out of it what we put into it.  We the people are ultimately responsible for the condition and quality of our lives.

    Based upon the sentiment of the people, When seeking an education and training for a hand Up, is Not, looking for a hand out. Therefore with that goal in mind, "Every nation gets the government it deserves."

    Speaking as a collective whole  yeah, most often. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has purchased its patrons with lies, ignorance and a theocratic fervor in socialism. Those that love and live liberty best are by most part still caught up in the sweep that constitutes the nation..
