    "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others that have been tried."
    - Winston Churchill, 1947

    "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average constituent."
    - Misattributed to Winston Churchill, oldest known source for the quote is a 1992 Usenet post (!)
