Michael Rozeff at LewRockwell.com exposes the myth of "government for the people, by the people, and of the people" that has been promoted by both the Republicans and the Democrats, the conservatives and the liberals.
The U.S. government is certainly NOT of the people, NOT by the people, and NOT for the people. In the vernacular of the day, what do we have? Government of the People, by the People, for the People. NOT.
