When seeking office, the aspirant must pretend to be what he is not. After seizing power, he should impose his agenda quickly and ruthlessly before his subjects realize what he is doing and have time to react.

On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs - Dave Grossman
By LTC (RET) Dave Grossman, author of "On Killing."
Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always,even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying… Continue

A friend of mine wrote this in response to an email;
We've been in inverted totalitarianism for a while. Government is managed by the elite who revolve with the corporate elite and lobby branch of government; and they enrich each other at the cost in wealth and lives of the apathetic demos that are told that their only duty in democracy is to vote every so often, then go home and shut up. Once elected, drive the point home that "average plumber Joe" is too stupid to be involved in… Continue
