<span style='font-size: 14pt'>"Nobody has ever successfully explained to me how people who are too stupid and helpless to take care of themselves are smart enough to elect individuals that will take care of them. Once you understand that contradiction, you understand how tyrannies come to pass around the world."</span>

Here's another:

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”</span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>-Samuel Adams-</span>

Typical tyrannies come about by armed force, coup d'etats, revolutions, killing the old boss for the new boss, etc.

If there are votes involved, it's for show, and they are rigged, usually.
