Consider this an entry into Round 3 of the No Sheeples Here Sweater Puppy Rule 5 competition.
Victory is Mine! - See below.
The Troglopundit recently stated his disdain over recent comments made by a climate scientist or some other such dipshit speaking about "modern democracy" getting in the way of a climate saving social(ist) agenda. I'm not going to address the dipshit. If you don't know where I stand on climate change or suspension of human rights, please, let me direct you to the "older posts" button at the bottom of this page.
Jefferson's or Madison's definition, a Democratic Republic. We are still a ways from true democracy, but with the recent 50.1% vote for Obamacare by both houses, the democratic element to the republic has gained far too much weight. (What happened to the supermajority?)
I agree that democracy, when used alone, is a stoopid form of government. But a republic would also degenerate into oligarchy or aristocracy if left unchecked by the masses (democracy). I'll offer current events as my proof. Funny how these lessons need teaching again.
The leftists and progressives have been touting this "democracy" description of America for evah, and it's time we conservatives quit taking the bait. We need to remind people what kind of government this is supposed to be. A Democratic Constitutional Republic. Ruled by law, not the whims of the majority. A government that protects ones God given rights instead of a government so powerful as to grant rights. A government powerful enough to grant you rights is one that will easily and thoughtlessly take them from you.
We need a well informed populace to defeat these ignoramuses and sophists. That's where the cro-magnon-neanderthal and tin-headed-pom-pom-obsessed bloggers come in.
Get it? Left, Right?
Whatever. I know you could do better.
Also somewhat related, in the sense of battling stupidity, is this post at The Thinker. I'm headed over there now for a refresher course, as this post has degenerated somewhat since I started
UPDATE: We Have A Winner!
Hey whaddya know, I musta drank 'em under the table! Nobody showed up but me and The Trog so, after little or no finneaglin' that you know of, I waltzed outta there with a new mantle piece. Check 'er out. Ain't she a beyute? Thanks to No Sheeples Here and The Camp of the Saints for hosting such an *ahem* outstanding contest. Good luck to the rest of you in your wagering on the last games.
