Why Democracy?

Democracy was among the victims on 9/11.  Those who orchestrated this false flag operation, not only, murdered 3,000 people but they, also, subverted our democratic right to decide the critical question of war.

So what’s so great about democracy?

First, as our Founding Fathers understood, every person is born with certain rights including the right to self-government.

Second, democracy recognizes that in some basic way we are all equal and should have the opportunity to rise as far as our talents take us.

Third, democracy doesn’t like bullies.  We don’t bend our knee to anyone whether a king, a president or Goldman Sachs.

American democracy is peculiar.  We want majority rule, true, but we, also, place high value on our personal liberty.  That’s why the Founding Fathers included the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution.

Democracy, like the United States of America, belongs to us and is worth fighting for.

In the next series of blogs, I’m going to discuss why American democracy is taking it on the chin and what we can do about it.

One Response to Why Democracy?

  1. Tomas Kosmak says:

    Democracy couldn’t die because it never existed in USA. This country is constitutional representative republic and the Founding Fathers were much oposed to democracy. Democracy is defined, among others,as “government of the masses” (communism anyone?) and rule of mob.
    Here is J.Madison in Federalist Papers no.10
    “Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths”
