    Geez, now the whacko wingnuts are just making shiite up.

    Why am I not surprised.

    The nose-to-buttocks lemmings will regurgitate anything, as long as it comes from a whacko wingnut echo chamber.

     

    The actual (and complete) quote is:

    "The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall."

    "Ask not, what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country" - President John F. Kennedy, (D-MA)

    However, let us all never forget that the United States of American is decidedly not a democracy, for which we all owe great debt and thanks.
