Mike Lee Tweet Calling U.S. a Republic, Not a Democracy, Causes Controversy
Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) created quite a bit of controversy with a couple of tweets he sent out during and after the vice-presidential debate.
‚ÄúThe word ‚Äėdemocracy‚Äô appears nowhere in the Constitution, perhaps because our form of government is not a democracy. It‚Äôs a constitutional republic. To me it matters. It should matter to anyone who worries about the excessive accumulation of power in the hands of the few,‚ÄĚ Lee tweeted, apparently in response to a statement made by Democratic VP candidate Kamala Harris during her ‚Äúdebate‚ÄĚ with her Republican counterpart, Vice President Mike Pence.
For nearly half an hour after that first tweet, Lee continued tweeting the truth to a bunch of people who prefer not to hear it....
Is everyone tired of snowflakes being triggered by someone expelling a truthful statement as much as I am? It never ends, the classroom is a mess, kids are making fun of the goody two shoes , the thugs are setting fires in the trash cans, smoking dope and putting the whoop on the student of the month.., and a teacher ( preferably someone over 55 years of age), walks in.
A democracy is essentially mob rule. The majority dictates the law of the land. We were not founded as a democracy but as Ben Franklin stated a ‚ÄúRepublic‚ÄĚ, governed not by the will of the masses but by the rule of law as expressed in our Constitution
Controversy? Why? Don‚Äôt the Dumbocracts know what form of government we have? Now admittedly they want to destroy our form of government and replace it with another form, but even that will not be democracy. It will be tyranny.
