If I have to listen to another Democrat hue and cry about “our democracy”, I’m going to puke.
There’s a reason we’re not a democracy. We are a Republic, although at this point I would say we’re post republic and post-constitution based on how the government acts. Democracy is mob rule. Our founding fathers knew this. They weren’t dumb or ignorant, unlike your average college student these days. They had studied history, and knew that every single democracy in history had failed.
So they didn’t give us a democracy. They gave us a republic, if we could keep it. Based on what I see coming out of D.C., I think we failed. But that just makes us a corrupt oligarchy, not a democracy.\
In any case, when you hear a Democrat wailing about “our democracy”, you can rest assured that actual democracy is the last thing that they want. Kind of like how they have to save democracy by imprisoning their political enemies. You know, like the USSR did. So democratic!
