Obama Nation

The state of Illinois has issued temporary license plates for the nation’s hero, Barack Obama.

Abe Lincoln normally adorns the standard Illinois license plate, as seems appropriate. I'd prefer Walter Payton but that's me.

People, democracy is not about idolizing those you believe in. Democracy is about having the power to judge your leaders critically and hold them accountable for their actions. Giving Obama the recognition of a great president betrays the purpose of the system our founding fathers gave us. It also gives him the license to do whatever he wants. And in the words of Spiderman's Uncle, or Lord Acton:

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."
Democracy is not a religion. If you make it one, it becomes tyranny. For more information please see Cuba, Venezuela, Turkmenistan, Iran, and Zimbabwe.

I talk a lot about inflation. But today was the first time in my life I actually used a dollar bill as toilet paper.
