Not Democracy

For those Statist-Collectivist whiners out there, I have a suggestion. Since you believe that majority rule is the acceptable law of the land in our Republic (hint: it isn't), what would you do if the 13th Amendment was repealed by majority rule??.

Would you then crow about how more than half the people voted for it so it must be right? Or, would you acknowledge that the tyranny of the majority is capable of truly abhorrent things and sometimes we need to adhere to our founding principles?

Democracy is three wolves and a sheep voting on the dinner menu.

Freedom is an armed sheep defending against the predations of the majority.

Think about it.
