Happy Easter: Chocolates and democracy for each and everyone

'Democracy is the government of the people, by the people, for the people.'* Abraham Lincoln*
'Democracy is when the indigent, and not the men of property, are the rulers.' Aristotle
'Those wanting to improve democracy in their countries should not wait for permission.' Bulent Ecevit
'Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if  you want to test a man's character, give him  power.' Abraham Lincoln
'As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy.' Abraham Lincoln
Chocolates are not forever and if our children want more they'll have to buy tomorrow. My nephew is here and this is the page he is playing for free, of course I'll never pay for such a thing. Have a Great Easter and let's hope and act to improve democratic institutions all over the world because the word people is being forgotten in almost all nations. "...by the people."
*(reminder: he said this in his Gettysburg address in 1863 during American civil war. The photography is a transcription at the Capitol that is behind Abrahan Lincoln's famous sculpture)
