For the record, there had been nothing hysterical or anything demonstrably crappy about the original post, and there is something very important that I think a lot of us are failing to fully grasp right now. In a democratic republic, the people are in charge and their role is to make their wishes known to those who represent them.The poor guy must have failed high school civics. We don't live in a "democratic republic"...we live in a Federal Constitutional Republic, otherwise known as a representative republic. The people aren't "in charge", the people elect other people to be in charge. And if they don't like what those people do, they elect other people the next time around.
Remember the German Democratic Republic? Yeah...that was East Germany. The now-unified Germany kept the name of the former West Germany: The Federal Republic of Germany. It's no coincidence that one survived and the other didn't. Just think of states whose formal names contain the words "Democratic Republic" or "People's Republic" and ask yourself if you want to live there. North Korea goes for the double-whammy with the name "Democratic People's Republic of Korea".
The whole point of a representative republic is to prevent the worst tendencies of mob rule, such as the marginalization of significant minorities, like the 48% of Americans who didn't vote Democrat.
