Scene From The Hollywood Movie The Ox Bow Incident (Democracy in Action)
Just because someone is an old white supremacist, racist, misogynist, sexist Christian does not necessarily mean that you can’t learn something from them. What is a democracy? It is a majority ruling over a minority. What did some of those (American Founders) people have to say about democracy?
“Democracy is the most vile form of government. … democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
– James Madison (1751-1836) Father of the Constitution, 4th President of the U. S.
“We are a Republic. Real Liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy.”
– Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) Lawyer, Secretary of the Treasury & Secretary of State
“A simple democracy is the devil’s own government.”
– Benjamin Rush (1745-1813) Founding Father& signer of the Declaration of Independence.
If a democracy is rule by a majority over a minority, does that mean that all people in any given majority agree with each other on all issues? Of course that is not the case! Leftists disagree on all sorts of stuff – listen to the Democrats debate each other. They do all agree on their hatred for Donald Trump and for Christians, but after that, they have many disagreements. Who is pushing the idea of democracy when you will never find that term in any of the state constitutions nor in the U.S. Constitution – it ain’t there!!!
America is a republic which means rule by law. Democracy is rule by majority. That’s a huge difference. Let’s put it in its proper perspective; in a democracy, the mob captures a criminal, and they lynch him after a brief discussion of his crime (read the book Ox Bow Incident). In a republic, when the mob captures the criminal, and prepares to lynch him, the sheriff rides up; stops the lynching and arrests the accused and takes him in for trial. Big, big difference – think about it!
