Why Ace rules
So far as is known for certain, Edmund Burke didn't actually say it.
And if he had, he probably wouldn't have said it quite the way Ace does:
When good men do nothing, evil men are permitted to rule.
On the other hand, doing nothing is a lot easier than doing something. Doing nothing ... I don't know. It just "feels right" to me, somehow.
And maybe evil men should be allowed to rule, come to think of it. They generally seem to be highly-motivated and good at organizing.
Ah, the hell with it. I'm a Republican. I pretty much exist to insure that evil men rule.
George Wallace, who once claimed there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties, forks over a penny here: the Democrats have an occasional interest in getting evil women to rule.
