Bush the 43rd inherited a strong economy and a surplus, yet now there is stagnation and a steadily increasing deficit. We see a threat to our life, liberty and property. Ruling a kingdom is, in some ways, easier than winning a Democratic primary against a more liberal opponent.
And he continued to participate in republican circles throughout the length of his life. We remember what freedom is, and as long as we have that memory, we will not be destroyed. To Machiavelli, forms of deceit that are easy for the public to see through are not worth pursuing.
It has a matter-of-fact tone, and all advice is based on history and observation. I doubt the nobles are at all displeased with his performance, but as they already know, we are the deciding factor.
Richard Reeves is a syndicated columnist. Another school of thought attests that Machiavelli was playing the game of thrones, which would explain his contradictory political attitudes.
Meanwhile we have an unfortunate tendency of wanting to be protected so we too try and empower one of our own. The trouble is that they are stupid, unconvincing and ineffective. And Clinton needs help with voter turnout. Greatness may be beyond the reach of President Clinton because his one attempt at a great undertaking, national health care, produced nothing.
