"...deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."

Elmo: ...deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...:
Approval of Congress falls to 9%.

Nine percent.

That's not just a joke about how crappy the Congress is; that's nine-damn-percent.

King George had a higher approval rating than that.

In 1775, we literally went to war against terrible odds to kick out a government that was less intrusive and more well loved than this one. Today, we have people demonstrating in the streets to give the Congress they hate more power.

Good to live in a more enlightened age, huh?
I can't help but wonder how many #Occupy Whatever types wold be able to ID the document the post title comes from.

And I'm sure someone has referred him to Attaaaaack Waaaatch already...
