11. Once upon a time, a political leader with a publically popular...
...policy, that "didn't have the numbers" would put it to the vote anyway. Amazing how many changed their minds when sudden loud noises from the unwashed masses suggested that THEY might not have the numbers come next election day.
Now DOA bills only make it to the floor when someone wants to make a point.
God gave man the capacity to do evil, Satan the knowledge of the difference. ¿Que? Who's the good guy again?
