Politics....a quote

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it." Thomas Jefferson

A thought occurred to me:

We fear freedom because we fear the worst of ourselves (though it is always the other guy) instead of having faith in the best of ourselves.

So we seek "leaders" rather than public servants. "Bosses" instead of representatives. Then base our decisions on the lesser of two evils...and blame politicians when things don't go our way.

My humble solution: Embrace fear...and embrace freedom.
