Democracy is mob rule.
If 51% of the population in a democracy decided all gays should be lined up and shot, it would be legal to do it and they would be lined up and shot.
Most people calling for democracy have no fxcking clue what a democracy is. Democracies ALWAYS self destruct.
The US has never been a democracy, despite all the idiots who think it is. The US has always been a constitutional republic.
Remember the pledge of allegiance? Is the word democracy in there anywhere?
