A republic protecting us from Hillary, in spite of her many votes.
A majority does not rule in a republic.

You don't have either. You have an oligarchy with a mad man at the helm
and you, a low IQ stupid and very gullible brainwashed fool, think
that's a wonderful thing.

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and
to the Republic for which it stands,....."

We are a REPUBLIC.

Democracy is not an "ism." Democracy cannot be narrowly defined. The
following are a few thoughts on the subject from qualified observers.

---- Alexis de Tocqueville, in Democracy in America,
The moral empire of the majority is founded in part of the idea that
there is more enlightenment and wisdom in many men united, than in one
alone.

---- Churchill
It's been said that democracy is the worst form of government, except
all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.

---- Edward Dowling, Editor and Priest, Chicago Daily News (July 1941)
The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first,
the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and
second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it.

---- P. J. O'Rourke, in Parliament of Whores (1991)
Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a
democracy, the whores are us.

---- Dorothy Thompson, Let The Record Speak, Boston: MA, Houghton
Mifflin Company (1939) p. 278
The conception of man as a product of economics is the essence of the
philosophy of Communism. The conception of man as a biological product;
his destiny entirely determined by his racial chromosomes, is the
essence of Nazism. The conception of man as a child of God—that is to
say, as a soul capable of reason, capable of developing and perfecting
himself in the image of the ideal—is the basis of democracy.

---- Noam Chomsky
Tyrannies, when they are strong, and democracies, when they are weak,
can not tolerate criticism. The 20th century has been characterized by
four developments of great importance: the growth of political
democracy, the growth of Online Democracy, the growth of corporate
power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting
corporate power against democracy. We may have democracy, or we may
have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.
True democracy consists not in lowering the standard but in giving
everybody, so far as possible, a chance of measuring up to the standard.
That, again, is what democracy is about. You talk to those who
disagree with you; you don’t beat them down. You exchange views. And you
come to a compromise, a settlement that would be best for the country.
I’ve always said that dialogues and debates are not aimed at achieving
victory for one particular party or the other, but victory for our
people as a whole. We want to build up a strong foundation for national
reconciliation, which means reconciliation not just between the
different ethnic groups and between different religious groups, but
between different ideas -- for example, between the idea of military
supremacy and the idea of civilian authority over the military, which is
the foundation of democracy.

Don’t forget these:
Politics = Exploitation
Frederic Bastiat, a 19th c. French classical liberal thinker had some wise observations.
"Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else."

He also said, "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."

---

"The first and most important thing to understand about politics is this: forget Right, Left, Center, socialism, fascism, or democracy. Every government that exists - or ever existed, or ever will exist - is a kleptocracy, meaning 'rule by thieves.' Competing ideologies merely provide different excuses to separate the Productive Class from what they produce. If the taxpayer/voters won't willingly fork over to end poverty, then maybe they'll cough up to fight drugs or terrorism. Conflicting ideologies, as presently constituted, are nothing more than a cover for what’s really going on, like the colors of competing gangs." - Author L. Neil Smith

---

Laws steal choices . They prohibit and limit choices for some people and make you obey someone else’s choices. It’s like being told where to sit on the bus. Laws make you do things you would not want to do if you were free. Was it meant to be this way? What can be more valuable than choice? What do you have when you have no choice?
