I have become more and more dismayed by lack of civics education in this country. In the last couple of days, with the health care summit, I have heard more people say that what Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama are doing is well and good since the USA is a democracy.
Will someone please stand up and tell them NO – we are not a democracy and we don’t want to be. The founding fathers knew that a simple majority would be as tyrannical as the monachy of England. Instead, we are a Republic based on laws and rules to protect the minority.
If you’re not sure why or don’t understand, watch this video and forward it to everyone you know.
