- Here is something I posted to a message board recently. After reading it, I thought it was worth quoting here…
Pure democracy is mob rule. It is rule of the majority with no rights for the minority.
America in its ideal form, however is a Democratic Republic. The majority does rule, but the rights of the minority are protected.
Now, America in its real form is still a Democratic Republic but it has been corrupted by artificial people who are NOT endowed by God with the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Artificial people (aka corporations) must get out of government. I agree with SmilingPeanut. It’s time for the ghost of Teddy Roosevelt to come and lead a new Reform movement to kick the artificial people out of government and to restore our true Democratic Republic.
