E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post Writers Group seems to think we live in a democracy. And he believes that President-elect Donald Trump will be the greatest threat to that belief America has ever faced.
Forget World Wars 1 and 2. Forget the former USSR, Communism, China, Fascists and all other forms of anti democracy governments and beliefs. The biggest threat is Trump. Donald Trump.
What he fails to understand is that we don’t live in a democracy. We live in a Constitutional Republic. A representative style of government that is both directly and indirectly appointed by the public. We don’t create law via a vote of the people such as with a democracy. We elect representatives to do that job for us.
Not to mention Mr. Dionne conveniently forgets that Obama decided he didn’t need the voice of the people nor of their elected representatives in order to make or affect law and regulation. He used a pen and signed executive orders left and right. He helped to force laws and regulation upon the people that poll after poll after poll and election after election proved the people didn’t want what he was selling.
I guess to Mr. Dionne and Liberals everywhere, Democracy means they get their way all the time no matter what the rest of us think or want. By the way, Mr. Dionne, that is called totalitarianism.
