What have we learned in 2,066 years?

Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 BC)

“The budget must be balanced, the Treasury must be refilled, public debt must be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom must be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands must be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” – Cicero, 55 B.C.

This is why it is so sad to watch our educational system succumb to any political entity. Knowledge, if left alone and fully free, can help to keep us free, knowledge bridled, as ours is, masks the truth and shapes what was into what might have been had the current socialist trend been in power all along. The Liberal/Progressive movement is one of control and destruction and once entrenched hard to dislodge.

History repeats itself, over and over and over and no one ever learns. People walk into the same traps and vote in the same governments only this time they have a different name but carry the same faces. God please help us all! God bless my friends in America who are really suffering at this time. Please return USA to its glory. Amen

Alas, Cicero himself never said this. But he should have.
