Kasich Offends The US Democracy

What is this clown doing? Why is he still around?

How can a politician who approves of the democratic process publicly state he is trying to stage a Byzantine coup de main at the expense of the most elementary sense of democracy, and of decency?

The man is breathtaking. A walking and talking offence to the most elementary understanding of democracy. An open subversive. A shameless careerist who does not want to realise a very elementary fact: Republican voters do not want him, and he will never make it to the nomination; but if the world becomes mad and he or someone who is not Cruz or Trump should get the nomination he would be destroyed at the polls in November and politically ever after, together with all his public supporters.

Kadich is an insult to any democracy; but particularly to the one he wants to be sworn to protect.

  1. The United States — a constitutional republic — has turned into a democracy which, of course, is fatal to good government. In a democracy, the majority deprives the minority of their constitutional rights. People think that they are the decision-making power in democratic representative government, but in truth there is a small group at the top that makes the decisions for the entirety. The 3 branches of government, the checks and balance system, ultimately fail to protect the rights and liberties of all citizens under democracy. The role of the judiciary is to now serve at the pleasure of the executive. Democracy is a type of oligarchy enforced by mob rule.

    In the late 1700’s, British professor Alexander Fraser Tyler said:

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.”

    Democracy ultimately leads to anarchy (absence of government) which leads to dictatorship or a tyrannical form of government. The global elite will emerge (through the United Nations or one of its various tentacles) to offer an alternative to dictatorship: a regional government — North American Union (like the EU) — which ultimately leads to a one-world government.

    There is, however, one form of government (not counting theocracy) which protects the weak and the strong: a constitutional republic. It is rule by law, not by majority. In it, our God-given inalienable rights are protected from encroachment by the government and the majority (the mob).

    “In a democracy, might makes right.
    In a republic, right makes might.
    In a democracy, law restricts the people.
    In a republic, law restricts the government.”
    (The Unseen Hand, by Ralph Epperson)

    • It remains to explain how to avoid the degeneration of democracy. And the answer is: in the sharing of the constitutional values meant to avoid its descent into mere populism.

      When that fails, all else will fail.
