    Unfortunately its the educated elite who are being barred from the corridors or power and allowing idiots to run amuck. All despots realize they must first do away with the educated elite to ensure power for themselves.

    Robert has it right here, King George W's henchmen have made our most recent, biggest messes... both in their actions of the last 6 years AND in what they each did back in the 70s & 80s... These problems are not from the "educated elites", but from the raving loonies!

    I think we ought to remember that those in power are NOT idiots and loonies -- it is the People who put them there who deserve the blame.

    Robert, educated? (a very broad subject). There are also those that have garnered great mental libraries of rights, liberty and natural law.
