Exporting Democracy Has Led to Shortages of it in U.S., Experts Say
The U.S. policy of exporting democracy abroad has meant that there is very little of it left at home.

That is the grim assessment of a new study commissioned by the University of Minnesota, which predicts that if the U.S. continues to export democracy at its current pace it may completely run out of it at home by the year 2015.

8. Clwarly, you do not understand where Democracy comes from.
We're not exporting Democracy, we're SEEDING it. The seeds will grow into strong and tall Democracy trees - which, as everyone knows, can only be watered with blood and oil - bearing ripe fruits of liberty. The US will then harvest these fruits, bringing MORE Democracy back home! There will be a surplus of Democracy, which we can then sell to other countries for profit, to create and/or bolster their own Democracies!

And any leftovers will be used to make pie. :patriot:
