% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
“Democracy is the pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.”
“Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want 
and deserve to get it good and hard.”
“Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove 
that the other party is unfit to rule- and both commonly succeed, and are right.”
 ”There’s really no point to voting. If it made any difference, it would probably be illegal.” 

- H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)
