Democrats and Funerals

A great opportunity for a political rally!

It seems the only way you can generate a crowd for a Democrat political rally is to stage it as a funeral. Remember Paul Wellstone’s funeral, a couple of years back? What a spectacle that was.

This week they did it again at Congressman John Lewis’ funeral, with former President *Batteries Not Included, supposedly there to deliver a eulogy, diving head-first into 2020 politics (https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/31/stephen-miller-obamas-comments-at-lewis-funeral-totally-disconnected-from-reality-389386).

Obama lashed out at President Donald Trump, as usual, called the legislative filibuster “a Jim Crow relic,” demanded “automatic” voter registration and the creation of a national holiday for Election Day, and spewed out the customary blather about “suppressing” the minority vote and “attacks on our democracy.”

I would never say it at a funeral, but I think too many people vote and that the voting age ought to be raised to 50.

To restate the obvious, the United States is not a “democracy.” It is a constitutional republic founded on the principal that government itself is a necessary evil whose power must be vigorously limited. Otherwise it’ll just devour everything.

And, as Mark Simone asked on the radio today, how come you aren’t allowed to fill up a church for a service, but it’s okay to jam ’em all in for a Democrat funeral?

God help us if we ever let these people get back into power. Throughout history, “democracy” will either self-destruct or deteriorate into tyranny. It never fails.

Our country’s founders knew that. I wish we did.


Hillary: Abolish Electoral College

Still in full tantrum mode

The Greek historian Polybius praised the Roman Republic for its system of checks and balances. As a Greek, he had personal experience of “democracy” self-destructing into hysteria and mob rule.

Today presidential wannabe Hillary Clinton, still unable to come to terms with her defeat by Donald Trump and the American people, continues to push for the abolition of one of our country’s firmest and most successful checks and balances–the electoral college (https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/09/17/hillary-clinton-abolish-electoral-college-because-donald-trump-is-destroying-america/).

Why? Because Donald Trump won, and he’s “a racist.” And he’s destroying an “American democracy” that does not exist and never did: our Constitution guarantees us a republican form of government, not a democracy. Our founders read Polybius.

Of course, it would require a constitutional amendment to replace the electoral college with a straight popular vote. You don’t “just do it.” But I don’t think Democrats know that.

Without the electoral college, every presidential election would be dominated by Far Left crazy states California and New York; and a regular injection of illegal alien votes would ensure a perpetual Democrat presidency. Can’t have any of those voter ID laws, etc. That would be racist.

The electoral college protects America from being hijacked by a handful of states with big populations. It has always protected us from that. “Democracy,” Polybius wrote, never fails to degenerate, first into mob rule, finally into dictatorship. Sort of like what happened in Venezuela.

If you love your country, don’t even think about voting for a Democrat.
