Let me say upfront that In general, Tucker Carlson does shed a shining light on the notoriously evil nature and desires of those who have seized control over the Democrat Party Leadership, i.e., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, AKA :“The Squad”.
Having pointed the above out, Mr. Carlson is absolutely in error when he asserts democracy is under attack in the United States.
Contrary to what Mr. Carlson says, the truth is, those who have seized control over the Democrat Party Leadership are promoting and demanding “democracy”. They are demanding a system of government in which a majority rule, and especially at election time which Mr. Carlson mentions in the above video. Are they not looking to end the Electoral College in favor of “democracy” ___ majority rule? Have they not embraced a plan to overhaul the Supreme Court, and add 10 more members?
Democracy is a form of government which predictably results in nothing less than an unbridled mob rule system susceptible to the wants and passions of a political majority imposing its will upon those who may be outvoted, and would, if allowed to raise its ugly head in the United States, would end in the subjugation of unalienable rights, and especially the loss of rights associated with property ownership.
Democracy, or majority rule vote, as the Founding Fathers well knew, whether that majority rule is practiced by the people directly, or by elected representatives, or refereed by a majority rule Supreme Court vote, if not restrained by specific limitations and grants of power, and particular guarantees in which the unalienable rights of mankind are put beyond the reach of political majorities, are most assuredly to result in nothing less than an unbridled mob rule system. And that is why our founders guaranteed us a “Republican Form of Government” [see Article 4, Section 4, of our Constitution], controlled and limited by a written Constitution ___ hence, a constitutionally limited, Republican Form of Government.
Tucker Carlson ought to study FEDERALIST NO. 10 and then decide if he really embraces “democracy” carried out by “The Squad’, which is all in favor of “democracy”.
“democracy will envy all, contend with all, endeavor to pull down all; and when by chance it happens to get the upper hand for a short time, it will be revengeful, bloody, and cruel…” John Adams, a principle force in the American Revolutionary period
