This is not and never has been a Democracy. We are a Republic. This is a nation built on a contract between the Government and the people. The people that tell us we have elected them violate that contract routinely and more-and-more with impunity. The Democrat and Republican establishments attempts to thwart the voice of the people is just another example of that .
The Founders of this nation feared Democracy, for the will of the people is fickle and unpredictable; but more than that it is arbitrary and without analytical forethought.
You would not play chess with rules subject to the whims of expediency. You would not play Monopoly® with a Banker that cheats. Why do we play real life this way?
