"The right and left are clueless and wouldn't know democracy if it bit them."
But, of course, Cliffy, you do.
Why don't you enjoy the rest of your life in heavenly "DEMOCRACIES" like Cuba or Venezuela, or North Korea?
You must get the chip off your shoulder, sooner or later. Not everybody likes living in the wild. And if you can be honest for a second you will admit that you enjoy every single conveience that modern living provides, and you enjoy all the freedom that out democracy offers you.
