Interesting Point

Old Grouch, in a discussion on Tam's blog, points out that part of the problem in Haiti is that they've been taught nothing but dependence pretty much from the beginning.  He also aptly points out that the subsequent dictators had a habit of weeding out anyone who might be competition.  Much the same as what is starting to go on here--the government wants the populace dependent upon it for everything.  But not everyone has been weeded out here so there may be hope.

Haiti: an entire nation of democrats. Evolution in action.

Amazing similarities, aren't there? Just hope we can turn the tide here.
