Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.
John Ada

John Adams became the 2nd president for America. John Adams was criticized for being disturbingly
truthful and straight forward. He was the rebellious one who got everyone going. He was a man of
tension and would not stand for Britain's ways and woes of leading its country. As America drags
on we are forgetting that the people are the leaders and not the government! The constitution was
written by Thomas Jefferson as we well know and yes this is correct partly. Thomas Jefferson did not
alone write it. John Adams was not known as a writer for America because back in the day he was
obnoxious and unpopular but I tell you now that the personality of john Adams is what got America
going. John Adams and rebels followed their heart and reached. They did successfully achieve their
goal but is it slipping away? With overpowering police force and bailouts giving out money to
whomever are we really getting correct rights? John Adams once said, 'Let us dare to read, think,
speak, and write.' This means many different things but to me it means to make a change. Not
Barack Obama's change but change as in your own ways. As he goes on he was known for the yelling arguments on the early years on the
congress. He stands today as a great hero for all. He dares us to speak up, write what we want, and
to think with our minds. Are you going to let America go to its downfall or get the power on the
people's side? John Adams chose the people.
