Democracy is 2 wolves & a sheep deciding what's for dinner.

I think we need to be very careful about the use of the word Democracy. It can be used to infer equal rights, but it also is a very specific form of Government. We are a Constitutional Republic with elements of a Representative Democracy where the leaders are elected. Some states have a form of Direct Democracy with referendums and initiatives. Make sure you are aware of the difference it will be a sticking point moving forward if you misuse the terms.

How about someone advocating for a return to a constitutional republic??? Democracy is what got us in the situation in the first place. Democracy is majority rule, The US of A was built on majority rule with rights reserved to the minority, in other words A Republic.
