Dare I start this thread?

Left-wingers/Right-wingers/Middle-of-the-roaders, Does the masses truly have the ability to govern themselves? Is true liberty and democracy ceded to the people by sheer majority rule? Need there be a strong central leader/government to guarantee personal freedom? Can a republic depend upon the common people for its survival? Or will apathy and ignorance of the people allow a dictatorship to evolve as long as individual/groups wants are being catered to?

A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”
