Why then, do I see SO many arguments like, "Well, we live in a democracy sooo...."?



You don't even have to take a civics class. You can just recite the pledge..."and to the REPUBLIC. FOR WHICH IT STANDS..."



Back to basics. Dear God let's PLEASE get back to basics.

"People at the extremes are happier than political moderates. Correcting for income, education, age, race, family situation and religion, the happiest Americans are those who say they are either

Yeah. Totally a joke. It's like what people THINK "free health care" actually is. Like Obama is "blessing" the masses with it.



Guess what? Even the people at Oprah's giveaway shows have to PAY TAXES on all of those "free" gifts.

America has never been a democracy. The founding fathers actually thought the general population was too stupid to vote directly on issues, and they were right.

That's why we are a Constitutional Republic. Democracies in theory are great, but they don't work.

I think people say "we live in a democracy" as we DO have a lot of decisions made by "majority rules."
