Lies repeated often enough ...

An educated citizenry is the backbone of democracy.  Unfortunately, our citizenry has been misinformed.  It reminds me of the number of people who thought there were WMDs in Iraq and the bad decisions that were subsequently made.

"A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to Farce or Tragedy or perhaps both." - James Monroe
