Words to live by . . .

Or get along by, for my never-Trump friends:

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”
— Benjamin Franklin
(1706-1790) US Founding Father

“Without general elections, without unrestrained freedom of press and assembly,
without a free struggle of opinion, life dies out in every public institution…
in which only the bureaucracy remains as the active element.”
— Rosa Luxemburg
(1880-1919)
Source: in The Russian Revolution

“The short memories of the American voters
is what keeps our politicians in office.”
— Will Rogers
(1879-1935) American humorist

As for that contesting part, well I’d say editorially, for starters, ok?
