RE: Call to kill terrorists 'in the name of the Lord' sparks outcry
Yes GermanStar, just swap the words "the Governement of the Philippines" with Iraq or some other middle eastern soon to be under democratic rule (except for Israel as it is part of the United states or maybe the other way around, I don't know I am confused sometimes) in this quote below from the same senator a hundred years ago:
The Opposition tells us that we ought not to govern a people without their consent. I answer, The rule of liberty that all just government derives its authority from, the consent of the governed, applies only to those who are capable of self- government. I answer, We govern the Indians without their consent, we govern our territories without their consent, we govern our children without their consent. I answer, How do you assume that our government would be without their consent? Would not the people of the Philippines prefer the just, humane, civilizing government of this republic to the savage, bloody rule of pillage and extortion from which we have rescued them?
