    Margaret, how could you know that the people trespassing in gaza are malnourished? Have you been there? Are you a certified nutritionist? There is no such thing as a pure, functioning democracy. The best one can hope for is a democratic republic in which there is some tolerance for the crack-brained ideas the left puts forth. The main problem with the left is that sooner or later, they want to turn the 'democracy' into a 'meritocracy' in which only intellectuals can hold public office. This breeds a phenomenom called 'governance' which is the best example of the blind leading the blind that modern man can achieve. The appropriate annecdote is the one about the scientist and the engineer: They were challenged to travel down a long hall by dividing the distance in half so they could reach the beautiful blonde at the other end. When the starting whistle blew, the engineer started measuring right away but the scientist just pulled up a chair and started laughing at the engineer. The moderator asked what was so funny and why the scientist was not measuring. He replied that no matter how many time one halves the distance, one can never actually get to the other end of the hall and the blonde. The engineer overheard him talking when he was about six feet from the blonde and said, "True, but I can get close enough!"
