What is and is to come, (again)

Keeping with a pessimistic theme that I've had for about 40 years or so, I've found this over at Coordinated Illumination:
In case you missed it:
21% believe the Government has the consent of the Governed.
32% believe in Alien Abductions.

Only the most delusional still believe in our our government.
Part history lesson with a smattering of quotes, like:
"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny."- Thomas Jefferson
He gives us a glimpse of the future by using the past, specifically throwing in Thomas Cole's "The Course of Empire" paintings to illustrate where we are headed in good ol' USA.

Consent of the Governed? Don't Fool Yourself.
