Newsweek's 'Palin Problem'

Obviously Newsweek isn't familiar with the thoughts of Thomas Jefferson on Citizen involvement in the legislature. This earlier Palin cover explains everything.

At university someone first explained to me the concept of a wise elite governing the masses. He thought it was a great thing. Something inside me revolted at the idea. The founders of our nation spent muchtime crafting a Representative Republic. Yes, straight democracy has it's perils, and our system addresses that, but a ruling elite becomes a totalitarian state all too easily.

I say, "The great good wisdom of the American people" in a Jury I would prefer any day over the rule of an elite Bar member judge.

One of the elite, William Buckley reportedly said, "I would rather be ruled by the first 1000 people in the Boston phone book than by the Harvard faculty."
