Say No To Democracy!

February 10, 2010 at 10:27 (Constitution/Constitutional Issues, Society)

Ha! The only true call of a patriot in my opinion is the call to treat the Constitution as a document that is not open to random interpretation (see where that got the Protestants with the Bible – powerful, but all over the map and splintered into a thousand factions, each sure he has the right interpretation), but is instead a set in stone, concrete law of the land that is only subject to change by amendment, and not open to interpretation. That’s just an unofficial amendment. If we return to being a true Constitutional Republic and basic capitalism, we’d be in much better shape than we are now.

If you’ve been paying attention to the left-wing punditry these days, you may be under the impression that the nation’s institutions are on the verge of collapse. Or that the rule of law is unraveling. Or maybe that this once-great nation is crippled and nearly beyond repair.

You know why? Because the 40 percent (or so) political minority has far too much influence in Washington. Don’t you know? This minority, egged on by a howling mob of nitwits, is holding progress hostage using its revolting politics and parliamentary trickery.

Leading the charge to fix this dire problem is New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, who advocates abolishing the Senate filibuster to make way for direct democracy’s magic.

It had better be quick. The populace is fickle. Jacob Weisberg of Slate believes that Americans are crybabies who don’t know what’s good for ’em, causing “political paralysis.” Even President Barack Obama, after his agenda had come to a halt, claimed democracy is a “messy” process — as if that were a bad thing.

Actually, “democracy” is not only messy but also immoral and unworkable. The Founding Fathers saw that coming, as well. So we don’t live under a system of simple majority rule for a reason, as most readers already know.
