Democracy: Finish That Thought True or False

1. Democracy will not come today, this year nor ever through -> compromise and fear
2. Freedom is a strong seed planted -> in a great need
3. I cannot live on -> tomorrow's bread
4. I want freedom -> just as you
5. I tire so of hearing people say -> let things take their course
