The headlines in a noted conservative news outlet read, “Democrats’ Voting Rules Takeover Is A Threat To Democracy.” The story went on to make all the same standard arguments about whether or not the states should continue to run the elections or should we, like in all despotic governments, have control of elections centralized and controlled by the despot.
The very premise that that what the Democrats are doing is a threat to democracy, is in fact incorrect. What the Democrats are doing is implementing democracy. The Democrats have been trying to make the United States a democracy for decades. Democracy is absolute rule as dictated by the majority, or by those in power who control the outcome of elections.
Our founders specifically rejected democracy and formed us as a republic. Democracies DO NOT protect the liberties of people, nor do they adhere to “rule of law.” Democracies believe that those in power have the authority to limit, or even abolish any liberty for a few, for many, or for all, if they determine it is in the best interest of “democracy” to do so. This is what all despots do.
Democracies demand the abolition of “rule of law” and demand “arbitrary law”. “Rule of Law” is blind and implements the written law, in our situation that would be the Constitution of the United States. “Arbitrary law” is used to punish opponents and reward supporters. Under “arbitrary law”, the law is what the despot declares it to be at any point in time. It can be changed or added to as the despot deems necessary. Under “rule of law” the burden of proof is on the state or prosecutor while under “arbitrary law” the burden of proof is on the defendant.
Our founders understood democracy. That is why they rejected democracy. They told us that they reject democracy because it is rule by the mob. They went on to further explain that democracy is a dictatorship of the majority, or those who hold power, over all who are out of power.
The founders also understood the evil of big, centralized government. This is why the powers of the federal government, or central government, are specifically stated in the Constitution. The stated powers are the only powers the federal or central government has. These powers were not suggestions, but defining and limiting. All other powers not stated as those granted to the federal or central government were reserved for the states. The Constitution specifically states that elections are to be controlled by the state legislatures.
In a democracy, the elections would be controlled by the central government. The states would have no control over how elections were to be conducted. This is exactly what the Democrats are demanding. This is exactly how elections were conducted in all collectivist nations including the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. This is what the proposed Voting Bill does.
What the Democrats have done over the last 100+ years is to transform the United States from a Constitutional Republic to a Democracy. They understand what all collectivists (communists) understand. That is that democracy is absolutely necessary to bring about socialism, and socialism is the gateway to communism.
The headline, “Democrats’ Voting Rules Takeover Is A Threat To Democracy” is false. The Voting Rules Takeover is a threat to our Constitutional Republic, it is a threat to our individual liberties, it is a threat to our freedom, and it is a sure way to transform us into a democracy which is mob rule, which is implementing a dictatorship, which is implementing socialism, which is the gateway to communism.
NOW YOU KNOW WHY THE DEMOCRATS WILL DO ANYTHING THEY MUST TO IMPLEMENT THE “VOTING RULES TAKEOVER.”
