The Fourth of July will be here before you know it, and then we’ll be treated to all sorts of mush-brained crackpot rhetoric about “America’s democracy” and all the tripe that goes with it.
The United States Constitution–you know, the law of the land, that Democrats are always trying to get rid of–guarantees each and every state a republican form of government, not a “democracy.” You could look it up. Or you could visit any one of a dozen People’s Democratic Republics around the world and see how you like eating tree-bark for breakfast.
Democracy, as practiced throughout history, is a terrible thing that lands its practitioners in troubles that are not easy to get out of. Our country’s founders knew that: they were determined to avoid subjecting their new country to “democracy.”
We keep trying to undo their work. That will catch up with us someday.
