And the idiot gawddamned rubes cheer.

Only…

We are founded as a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy.

Democracy (mob rule) voids our Republic (rule by/of law) which voids our Constitution that houses our Bill of Rights (individual liberties) and individual liberties do not and can not exist in a mob rule.  If the mob votes that you can’t own a firearm for protection, you ain’t ownin’ a firearm for protection. That’s democracy!

In our Constitutional Republic, Constitutionally protected individual liberties say: Fuck Mob Rule!
