Re: State of the Union – Democratic Response

Youtube Commments:
I think it was Nikita Khruschev who said “We (the communists) will force the United States to spend itself into destruction.” Well here we are, 50 years later, fighting a different enemy that IS actually causing us to spend ourselves into destruction. Khruschev would we proud of bu$h.

The beauty of American style “democracy” is that us peasants think we’re getting a better deal than we really are. That keeps most of us quiet, shopping, grumbling and voting for the good cop or the bad cop. It sure beats the Negroponte El Salvador option. So can a good cop get elected next time? Hillary, Barack, …

I am glad youtube is around because of people like you.

I would, however, take issue with your blurring of the term “democracy.” Let’s take your example of the Katrina refugees and residents of New Orleans. I don’t recall the exact figure, but around 90% of them were on welfare. They use democracy to steal from those paying taxes. The tax payer votes against it, they vote to line their pockets with $100 of yours, they end up with $50. That’s “democracy.”

Hi. Um…democracy? Yes. But wasn’t America a Republic… certain implicit rights that can’t be taken away despite the voting majority? When did the US switch to the bully-system? And do we notice the difference? Also, what do you think of Ron Paul?
