Simply put the definition of Democracy is the Majority ruling over the Minority. You may get some pseudo-intellectuals (lawyers/professors) pontificating around the edges but stripping away all the noise Democracy is about the Majority dictating to the Minority.
Those in the Majority think this is great…those in the Minority…not so much.
Let’s call it what it is.
Are there things worse than Democracy?
Socialism, Communism, Islam (Sharia) are all worse than Democracy although one could factually argue that Democracy molds to whatever the majority dictates.
If the “majority” dictates that women are property or have second class status and can be legally beaten (Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, etc.) then it appears the usage of the word Democracy would be correct.
It makes one wonder about anyone in America calling themselves a Democrat, and for the record all of the countries just listed have one thing in common.
Their system is Islam, Sunni or Shiite majorities.
Is there anything better than Democracy?
I’m glad you asked.
Here in these United States it is called a Constitutional Republic.
A Constitutional Republic’s primary goal is to protect the rights of the Individual Citizen.
Not gangs known as Crips or Bloods, or groups known as Republicans or Democrats.
The purpose of the Constitutional Republic in America is to protect each AMERICAN citizen guaranteeing very specific rights that are beneficial to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Neither Democracy or a Constitutional Republic are animate or inanimate objects.
They are systems.
I’ve mentioned many times Freedom and Oppression are the only two cultures in human existence which is why multiculturalism fails so miserably.
No sane person will willingly mix or “diversify” Freedom and Oppression.
No sane human will trade being dictated to on Mondays and Wednesdays to be free on Fridays.
No sane human will barter being beaten or raped on Tuesdays and Thursdays to be safe on Saturday.
We want to be free and safe every day of the week and twice on Sunday to fulfill our dreams, to strive, succeed, fail, and strive again. To pursue happiness.
Under these two cultures, as the human animal as evolved or changed, systems have been created.
Economic systems like Capitalism and the aforementioned Socialism and Communism have spread all over the world as humans require freedom from other humans…or bow to enslavement.
The reason Capitalism is so much more powerful than all other stated economic systems isn’t complicated.
It is ingrained in the individual to take care of themselves.
Capitalism is the only economic system where humans are motivated intrinsically rather than extrinsically…and that’s why it works.
All humans are born with free will and very specific needs to be met. Both free will and our needs are met individually.
Your extra consumption of water in the mountains isn’t going to quench the thirst of someone standing in the desert.
Your eating dessert isn’t going to hurt your neighbor three doors down with type two diabetes.
Your usage of an umbrella in a rain storm doesn’t stop the guy down the street, without one, from getting wet.
The human animal comes with specific emotional coping techniques to allow pain to be handled. Denial and rationalization almost always come first.
Responsible humans move through these relatively quickly and grasp acceptance through TRUTH. The truth isn’t always pretty but it never changes.
It can be counted on.
Truth isn’t hypothetical.
Truth is universal.
Truth is so easy to see and more importantly even easier to feel.
We know truth. We embrace truth.
Truth is the only permanent solace known to man.
Time to rip off the bandage in one giant pull.
This is the TRUTH.
The only thing keeping the Democratic Party alive is…the Republican Party.
The only thing keeping the Republican Party alive is…US.
When I refer to US I mean those of us working in the private sector (Capitalism) creating the profits that allow the country to run.
Yes the military is important (incredibly) and a requirement to remain free, but without real profit, that is then taxed, a military cannot be properly maintained (which is why the debt is putting us in an increasingly dangerous place).
Those same profits created are being used against US to hire more “government” workers on many levels. This increases the size of the “public unions” and requires each new hire to pay dues. These dues are then funneled back to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) where that money is spread all over the country trying to keep the Democratic Party alive. Yes New York public union dues do end up in swing-states like Colorado and Florida every election cycle.
The current Democratic Party is dead.
They just don’t know it yet.
The Millenials hate the Democrats almost as much as they hate the Republicans.
Almost half of all Millenials are beginning to call themselves Independents not knowing there isn’t actually an Independent Party. There is an American Independent and the Independent American Party but they are so small, and not recognized beyond a couple of States, no one knows who they are.
The overwhelming majority in America abhors the Democratic Party.
There’s just nowhere else for them to turn because the Republican Party is simply awful.
The largest Democratic State in the country is California.
In California’s last election it was reported less than 20 percent of eligible citizens even bothered to vote.
Less than 1 in 5.
Or put another way more than 4 out of 5 Californians didn’t even try. Didn’t hang a chad, mark an x, write in Charlie Brown…and Charlie would have been so much better than Jerry.
Californians don’t love the Democratic Party…they just don’t have anywhere else to turn.
So instead of voting for either party they are choosing in massive numbers to stay home.
The Republican Party has been so bad for so long it lost…California!
How do you lose the largest economy in the country and do nothing about it?
How do you lose 40 million people, 55 electoral votes, dozens of House Representatives, 2 Senators, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the greatest piece of land the Earth has ever created…and do nothing!!!
How can you call yourself a Political Party when the votes of more than eighty percent of the citizens in the Golden State are available and you cannot put together a cogent plan to get ANY of them!!!
The truth is this. Most of America hates both parties. Most of America has decided to stay home on election night. Some out of laziness. Others out of apathy. Many to send a message. But an overwhelming amount would jump into the fray overnight if they had someone, anyone to believe in.
That’s why we are here.
To serve America.
To replace Democrats and Republicans with AMERICANS who swear their allegiance to country not party.
Doors continue to open. We have to be ready to move through them.
If Donald Trump is removed from the Republican ticket or deems he isn’t being treated fairly he will presumably strike out on his own which will “split the Republican vote”.
If the Democrats decide Hillary Clinton is finished the reported potential combination of Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren may be chosen by the DNC.
Bernie Sanders has already made noise about going “independent” which will split the vote.
The Party system is dead. America has had more than enough of debt, crime, and lies but the individual isn’t sure where to turn.
This is OUR time!
I will be in Nevada and Arizona next week followed by Detroit on the weekend of the 11th, 12th, and 13th of September where I will meet with AMERICANS whose loyalty is to these United States.
The 12th will be spent seeing Detroit and its suburbs and the 13th will be spent on Cave Radio with Tony Schwartz and his show Freedomworx.
Because it does!!!
The show will start at 2:00 and end at 5:00 Eastern Time. I will be on the air with Tony for three hours after which I will catch the next flight out and return home to California.
I was one voice two years ago. I am still one voice but I am willing to take my voice wherever it is necessary at my own expense. I will never ask or accept any money but I need your voices!
The Parties are the past. Democracy is dead.
It is time for the Individual to embrace the two systems that have never let them down.
Capitalism and The Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America!
Things are lining up for the unknown American to step into the fray and reclaim and restore our country.
Three percent…or ten million unknown Americans shoulder to shoulder should do the trick.
Join me brothers and sisters.
One voice at a time.
