MalcontentCategories: Commie Pinkos Comments Off on Flashback: Mitt Romney in criticizing Trump says founding father John Adams was wrong in his disdain for “democracy”
*We Don't Need Your Stinkin' Comments*
Excerpt from speech March 3rd 2016:
“You know, Ronald Reagan used to quote a Scottish philosopher, who predicted that democracies and civilizations wouldn’t last much longer than a couple hundred years. And John Adams wrote this, “Remember, democracy never lasts long; it soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” That’s John Adams.
I believe that America has proven these dire predictions wrong for two reasons. First, we’ve been blessed with great presidents, with giants among us. Men of character, integrity and selflessness have led our nation from the very beginning. None were perfect. Each surely made mistakes. But in every case, they acted out of the desire to do what was right for America and for the cause of freedom.”

An Important Distinction: Democracy versus Republic
In fairness, Trump, Pence, and their surrogates are proponents of democracy. Watch any of Trump’s rally videos. The good news for Trump and Pence, the rubes haven’t a clue.
True, Donald Trump and his supporters wouldn’t know the Constitution if it bit them in the ass.
