MFP accurately reax to Comey’s testimony   June 7, 2017

Fmr. FBI Director James Comey testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday– demonstrating yet again why the Founding Fathers feared democracy.

[Political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
