RISK: n 1: possibility of loss or injuryERIL. PLEBISCITE: n 1: plebis scitum Law voted by the comitia,; decree of the common people. http://www.dennisprager.com/columns...er_is_a_plebiscite_on_the_american_revolution If Americans re-elect the Democrat, Barack Obama, they will have announced that America should be like Western European countries -- governed by left-wing values. Americans will have decided that America's value system -- "Liberty," "In God We Trust," "E Pluribus Unum" -- should be replaced. The election in November is therefore a plebiscite on the American Revolution. The usual description of presidential elections -- "the most important in our lifetime" -- is true this time. In fact, it may be the most important election since the Civil War, and possibly since America's founding.
