from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Now that the election is over, Trump is out of office and Biden is in, thoughts have turned to governing. Well, maybe not governing. More like executive order fiat. It seems the only measure Congress has voted on thus far is the impeachment.
Still, if you believe the Dems, they were the ones we had to elect to restore our “democracy.” And every time they mention that word, “democracy,” many of us right-wing radicals feel compelled to remind America that we are not in fact a democracy, but are a constitutional, representative republic. Maybe we just say, “We are a republic.”
And we are a republic for a reason. The founders knew the difference, which is why they painstakingly developed the form of government we still have and has, at least for now, stood the test of time.
Yet for years, Democrats and, frankly, some Republicans have purposely or mistakenly described America as a “democracy.”
Anywho, among the inane ramblings of John “Read the Bill” Conyers, were gems like “This system, this capitalist system, is broken and may be nearly unrepairable.” But he also said, “We’re helping make America the democracy that it has yet to become.”
Now some might conclude that Conyers and hundreds of other Democratic politicians are just stupid – that they don’t know the difference. But they’re not stupid, particularly the older Democrats. They know full well what they advocate for, and it’s not the utopian “democracy” they preach. It’s tyranny.
