Avoid politicians who advocate democracy
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
In electoral contests today almost everyone, in both major political parties, advocate democracy; but our Founding Fathers ran from the word as fast as they could, advocating instead a republic. We need to do the same if we really understand liberty. Those using the term "democracy" either intentionally use the term to undermine individual liberty or show themselves as ignorant of the basics of our government. In either case, we are wise to reject them in preference to candidates rejecting democracy.
