100 Words On: A Grim Warning to Those Who Think Money Grows On Trees

A democracy can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy.

Unfortunately, last week we got a chance to reconsider that question after we returned from a week-long family vacation up the California coast.

Almost as soon as we got our nine-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, Major, back home from doggy day
